In geometry, an enneadecagon is a polygon with 19 sides and angles.[1] It is also known as an enneakaidecagon or a nonadecagon.[2]

The radius of the circumcircle of the regular enneadecagon with side length t is

R=\frac{t}{2} \csc \frac {180}{19} (angle in degrees)

The area of a regular enneadecagon, where t is the edge length, is

\frac{19}{4}t^2 \cot \frac{\pi}{19}
\simeq 28.4652\,t^2.

Construction[edit]

A regular enneadecagon cannot be constructed using a compass and straightedge.

Petrie polygons[edit]

The regular enneadecagon is the Petrie polygon for one higher-dimensional polytope, projected in a skew orthogonal projection:
