Is the diagonal of a square the same length as the side?
The length of the diagonal of the square is equal to √2 times of its side.
Answer: No, the diagonal of a square is not the same length as the side.
We will use the Pythagoras theorem for finding the length of the diagonal of a square.
The diagonal of a square form a right-angled triangle with any two adjacent sides of the square. Diagonal is the hypotenuse and the two sides of the square are perpendicular and base of the right-angled triangle.
Hence, Diagonal2 = Side2 + Side2
Diagonal = √2 × Side
