Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Calculate the third unknown inner angle

 alpha = 90° ; ; beta = 55° ; ; ; ; alpha + beta + gamma = 180° ; ; ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 90° - 55° = 35° ; ;

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

c = 105 ; ; ; ; fraction{ a }{ c } = fraction{ sin( alpha ) }{ sin ( gamma ) } ; ; ; ; a = c * fraction{ sin( alpha ) }{ sin ( gamma ) } ; ; ; ; a = 105 * fraction{ sin(90° ) }{ sin (35° ) } = 183.06 ; ;

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 = 105 * fraction{ sin(55° ) }{ sin (35° ) } = 149.96 ; ;


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 = 183.06 ; ; b = 149.96 ; ; c = 105 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 183.06+149.96+105 = 438.02 ; ;

5. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 438.02 }{ 2 } = 219.01 ; ;

6. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 219.01 * (219.01-183.06)(219.01-149.96)(219.01-105) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 61978868.17 } = 7872.67 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 7872.67 }{ 183.06 } = 86.01 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 7872.67 }{ 149.96 } = 105 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 7872.67 }{ 105 } = 149.96 ; ;

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{ 183.06**2-149.96**2-105**2 }{ 2 * 149.96 * 105 } ) = 90° ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 149.96**2-183.06**2-105**2 }{ 2 * 183.06 * 105 } ) = 55° ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 105**2-183.06**2-149.96**2 }{ 2 * 149.96 * 183.06 } ) = 35° ; ;

9. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 7872.67 }{ 219.01 } = 35.95 ; ;

10. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 183.06 }{ 2 * sin 90° } = 91.53 ; ;
