Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Calculate the third unknown inner angle

 alpha = 18° 24' ; ; beta = 90° ; ; ; ; alpha + beta + gamma = 180° ; ; ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 18° 24' - 90° = 71° 36' ; ;

2. By using the law of sines, we calculate unknown side a

c = 59 ; ; ; ; fraction{ a }{ c } = fraction{ sin( alpha ) }{ sin ( gamma ) } ; ; ; ; a = c * fraction{ sin( alpha ) }{ sin ( gamma ) } ; ; ; ; a = 59 * fraction{ sin(18° 24') }{ sin (71° 36') } = 19.63 ; ;

3. By using the law of sines, we calculate last unknown side b

 fraction{ b }{ c } = fraction{ sin( beta ) }{ sin ( gamma ) } ; ; ; ; b = c * fraction{ sin( beta ) }{ sin ( gamma ) } ; ; ; ; b = 59 * fraction{ sin(90° ) }{ sin (71° 36') } = 62.18 ; ;


Now we know the lengths of all three sides of the triangle and the triangle is uniquely determined. Next we calculate another its characteristics - same procedure as calculation of the triangle from the known three sides SSS.

a = 19.63 ; ; b = 62.18 ; ; c = 59 ; ;

4. The triangle circumference is the sum of the lengths of its three sides

p = a+b+c = 19.63+62.18+59 = 140.81 ; ;

5. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 140.81 }{ 2 } = 70.4 ; ;

6. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 70.4 * (70.4-19.63)(70.4-62.18)(70.4-59) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 335226.28 } = 578.99 ; ;

7. Calculate the heights of the triangle from its area.

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 578.99 }{ 19.63 } = 59 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 578.99 }{ 62.18 } = 18.62 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 578.99 }{ 59 } = 19.63 ; ;

8. Calculation of the inner angles of the triangle using a Law of Cosines

a**2 = b**2+c**2 - 2bc cos( alpha ) ; ; alpha = arccos( fraction{ a**2-b**2-c**2 }{ 2bc } ) = arccos( fraction{ 19.63**2-62.18**2-59**2 }{ 2 * 62.18 * 59 } ) = 18° 24' ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 62.18**2-19.63**2-59**2 }{ 2 * 19.63 * 59 } ) = 90° ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 59**2-19.63**2-62.18**2 }{ 2 * 62.18 * 19.63 } ) = 71° 36' ; ;

9. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 578.99 }{ 70.4 } = 8.22 ; ;

10. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 19.63 }{ 2 * sin 18° 24' } = 31.09 ; ;
