Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Calculate the third unknown inner angle

 alpha = 90° ; ; beta = 30° ; ; ; ; alpha + beta + gamma = 180° ; ; ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 90° - 30° = 60° ; ;

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

c = 60 ; ; ; ; fraction{ a }{ c } = fraction{ sin( alpha ) }{ sin ( gamma ) } ; ; ; ; a = c * fraction{ sin( alpha ) }{ sin ( gamma ) } ; ; ; ; a = 60 * fraction{ sin(90° ) }{ sin (60° ) } = 69.28 ; ;

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 = 60 * fraction{ sin(30° ) }{ sin (60° ) } = 34.64 ; ;


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 = 69.28 ; ; b = 34.64 ; ; c = 60 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 69.28+34.64+60 = 163.92 ; ;

5. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 163.92 }{ 2 } = 81.96 ; ;

6. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 81.96 * (81.96-69.28)(81.96-34.64)(81.96-60) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 1080000 } = 1039.23 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 1039.23 }{ 69.28 } = 30 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 1039.23 }{ 34.64 } = 60 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 1039.23 }{ 60 } = 34.64 ; ;

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{ 69.28**2-34.64**2-60**2 }{ 2 * 34.64 * 60 } ) = 90° ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 34.64**2-69.28**2-60**2 }{ 2 * 69.28 * 60 } ) = 30° ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 60**2-69.28**2-34.64**2 }{ 2 * 34.64 * 69.28 } ) = 60° ; ;

9. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 1039.23 }{ 81.96 } = 12.68 ; ;

10. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 69.28 }{ 2 * sin 90° } = 34.64 ; ;
