Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Calculate the third unknown inner angle

 alpha = 60° ; ; beta = 40° ; ; ; ; alpha + beta + gamma = 180° ; ; ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 60° - 40° = 80° ; ;

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

a = 120 ; ; ; ; fraction{ b }{ a } = fraction{ sin( beta ) }{ sin ( alpha ) } ; ; ; ; b = a * fraction{ sin( beta ) }{ sin ( alpha ) } ; ; ; ; b = 120 * fraction{ sin(40° ) }{ sin (60° ) } = 89.07 ; ;

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

 fraction{ c }{ a } = fraction{ sin( gamma ) }{ sin ( alpha ) } ; ; ; ; c = a * fraction{ sin( gamma ) }{ sin ( alpha ) } ; ; ; ; c = 120 * fraction{ sin(80° ) }{ sin (60° ) } = 136.46 ; ;


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 = 120 ; ; b = 89.07 ; ; c = 136.46 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 120+89.07+136.46 = 345.53 ; ;

5. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 345.53 }{ 2 } = 172.76 ; ;

6. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 172.76 * (172.76-120)(172.76-89.07)(172.76-136.46) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 27697568.23 } = 5262.85 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 5262.85 }{ 120 } = 87.71 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 5262.85 }{ 89.07 } = 118.18 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 5262.85 }{ 136.46 } = 77.13 ; ;

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{ 120**2-89.07**2-136.46**2 }{ 2 * 89.07 * 136.46 } ) = 60° ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 89.07**2-120**2-136.46**2 }{ 2 * 120 * 136.46 } ) = 40° ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 136.46**2-120**2-89.07**2 }{ 2 * 89.07 * 120 } ) = 80° ; ;

9. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 5262.85 }{ 172.76 } = 30.46 ; ;

10. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 120 }{ 2 * sin 60° } = 69.28 ; ;
