Flower areas

Postby joako » Fri Jul 23, 2004 10:52 pm

I am working on some experiments that require to know the area of my artificial flowers. I have round flowers (I can calculate that) but also 'lobed' ones. How could I calculate this regular but complex areas?
Thanks,

Joaquín

It would require that you share the approximate shape of the lobes. I'm thinking you might be able to approximate them as an eliopse, in which case you could use:

Area = Pi * A * B

Where you have a semi-major axis of length A and semi-minor axis of length B.
