# What is Apothem length of a hexagonal prism?

Space and AstronomySo, the apothem of a regular hexagon with 8-cm sides is about **6.93 cm**.

## Where is the apothem in a hexagon?

The apothem (sometimes abbreviated as apo) of a regular polygon is a line segment **from the center to the midpoint of one of its sides**. Equivalently, it is the line drawn from the center of the polygon that is perpendicular to one of its sides.

## How do you find the apothem length?

We can also use the area formula to find the apothem if we know both the area and perimeter of a polygon. This is because we can solve for a in the formula, A = (1/2)aP, by multiplying both sides by 2 and dividing by P to get **2A / P = a**. Here, the apothem has a length of 4.817 units. to find the length of the apothem.

## How do you find the side length of a hexagon with the apothem?

If you only know the apothem, you can still find the length of a side by **plugging the apothem into the formula a = x√3 and then multiplying the outcome by 2**. It is because the apothem depicts the x√3 sides of the 30-60-90 triangle that it forms.

## How do you find the apothem of a hexagonal prism?

To do this, use a calculator or a trigonometry table. **Multiply the tangent by 2, then divide the side length by this number**. This will give you the length of the apothem of your hexagon.

## Is the apothem equal to the side length?

**The apothem is always perpendicular to the side on which it ends**. A regular polygon has all its sides and angles equal.

## Is apothem the same as radius?

The apothem of a regular polygon is a segment connecting the center of the polygon to a midpoint of one of the sides, and the radius of a regular polygon is a segment connecting the center of the polygon to one of the vertices.

## What does apothem mean in math?

Definition of apothem

: **the perpendicular from the center of a regular polygon to one of the sides**.

## How do you find the area with an apothem and side length?

Video quote: *So if we find the area of a triangle remember the area of a triangle is one half base times height. So it's going to be one half the base is five the height is six that gives us 30 times 1/2 which is*

## How do you find the area of a octagon with an apothem?

You will obtain the total area of the octagon: **area of octagon = 8 * base * height / 2 = perimeter * apothem / 2** .

## How do you find the area of the equilateral triangle with the apothem?

Video quote: *We have a formula to figure air of a triangle it's usually that one-half base times the height or base times height divided by two.*
