# Hexagons and Squares - Diagonal Lengths

## Distances between corners for hexagons and squares. ### Hexagon

The distance between the corners in a hexagon as indicated in the figure can be expressed as

Dh = (2 / 3) 31/2 d

= 1.154701 d                            (1)

### Square

The distance between corners - length of diagonal - in a square can be expressed as

Ds = 21/2 d

= 1.4142 d                            (2)

### Example - Distance between Corners in a Hexagon

The distance between corners in a hexagon where d = 0.4 m can be calculated as

Dh = 1.154701 0.4

= 0.462 m
