What is the difference between convex polygon and non convex polygon?

A polygon is convex if you can take any two points inside the polygon and connect them with a line segment that is completely contained by the polygon. A non-convex polygon is one which contains at least two points such that the line joining them does not lie entirely inside the polygon.

How do you determine whether a polygon is convex or non-convex?

No interior angle of a convex polygon can exceed 180 degrees. A non-convex polygon has at least one reflex angle (> 180 degrees). Alternatively, a polygon is convex if, given any two points on or inside the polygon, the straight line joining the two points must lie wholly on or inside the polygon. In a non-convex polygon, it is possible to find a pair of points such that the straight line joining them lies outside the polygon for at least some of its length.
