PolygonAngle

PolygonAngle[poly]

gives a list of angles at the vertex points of poly.

PolygonAngle[poly,p]

gives the angle at the vertex point p of a polygon poly.

PolygonAngle[poly,i]

gives the angle at the point pi of poly in canonical form Polygon[{p1,,pn},data].

PolygonAngle[,"spec"]

gives the angle specified by "spec".

Details

  • PolygonAngle is also known as interior angle.
  • PolygonAngle[poly, p] gives the angle delimited by the two adjacent sides intersecting at p.
  • The following specifications "spec" can be given:
  • "Interior"interior (inside) angle at p
    "Exterior"exterior angle at p
    "FullExterior"full exterior angle at p
  • PolygonAngle[poly,p,"Interior"] is equivalent to PolygonAngle[poly,p].
  • PolygonAngle[poly,p,"Exterior"] is equivalent to π-PolygonAngle[poly,p].
  • PolygonAngle[poly,p,"FullExterior"] is equivalent to 2π-PolygonAngle[poly,p].
  • PolygonAngle can be used with symbolic polygons in GeometricScene.
