$d=\frac{\sqrt{kI}}{I}$
To solve for d, isolate d on one side of the equation. $I=\frac{k}{d^2}$ Multiply both sides by $d^2$. $I\times d^2=\frac{k}{d^2}\times d^2$ Simplify. $I\times d^2=k$ Divide both sides by I. $\frac{Id^2}{I}=\frac{k}{I}$ Simplify. $d^2=\frac{k}{I}$ Take the square root of each side. $\sqrt{d^2}=\sqrt{\frac{k}{I}}$ Simplify. $d=\sqrt{\frac{k}{I}}$ Rationalize the denominator. $d=\sqrt{\frac{k}{I}}=\frac{\sqrt k}{\sqrt I}=\frac{\sqrt k\times \sqrt I}{\sqrt I\times\sqrt I}=\frac{\sqrt{kI}}{I}$
