# Edge Of Rectangle

Moving from Point/Rectangle to two rectangles is easy, but the if statements start to get pretty long. Let's say we have two squares, `r1`

and `r2`

, with positions and sizes set like the last example. We now have to check:

Yeah, not so intuitive ðŸ˜–. A picture will probably help:

- The edge length of a rectangular box is either the length or the width. The longer side of the rectangle is the length and the shorter side is considered the width.
- (It is the edge opposite to the right angle and is c in this case.) Where (for brevity) it says 'edge a', 'angle B' and so on, it should, more correctly, be something like 'length of edge a' or 'edge-length' or 'size of angle B' etc. If the perimeter is needed, add together the lengths of edge a + edge b + edge c.
- The distance measured along an edge of the rectangle. In this context which one is considered Length and which one the Width is entirely irrelevant. Diagonal d The distance between either of the opposite corners of the rectangle. Circumferance c The distance measured once around the edge of the rectangle. Area a The area enclosed by the rectangle.

One edge of the rectangle is labeled length and the other is labeled width. To find the area of the rectangle, just multiply the two edges together.

To start, let's test the right edge of `r1`

with the left edge of `r2`

:

We can expand this idea, checking all four edges:

While the math here is simple addition, this is the trickiest collision for most people to get used to. With practice, you'll be able to picture this in your head. Of course, building a re-usable function makes checking for collisions much easier! In the meantime, it may help to map things out on a piece of paper when you're writing your code.

Here's a full example:

## Edge Of Rectangle

It's worth noting two important things here. First, the last two examples use squares, but any rectangle will work with this code. Second, this algorithm assumes you're using the default `rectMode(CORNER)`

, which draws rectangles from the top corner and specifies width/height. If you want to use `rectMode(CENTER)`

, you'll need to modify this algorithm (see the Challenge Questions at the end of this section).

Similar to the Circle/Circle example, **Rectangle/Rectangle** collision can be used to draw 'bounding boxes' around more complex shapes. However, what you gain in performance you lose in accuracy. If you've ever played a game and frustratedly shouted 'I totally hit you!' you have probably experienced bounding boxes that don't quite line up with their objects. Find the right balance between actually being correct and what feels right for the user.

A geometric property used in the design of beams is called as section modulus. This online calculator is used to find the section modulus of a rectangle with breadth and height. It is commonly used by civil and mechanical engineers.

#### Formula:

Section Modulus of Rectangle = ( b * h^{2}) / 6

**Where,**b = Breadthh = Height

#### Example

**If the length and breadth of the rectangle are 3 and 5. Find Section Modulus of Rectangle**

S = ( 3 * 25 ) / 6

= 12.5
