Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus b and angle α

b = 105 ; ; alpha = 10° ; ;

2. From angle α we calculate angle β:

 alpha + beta + 90° = 180° ; ; beta = 90° - alpha = 90° - 10 ° = 80 ° ; ;

3. From cathetus b and angle α we calculate hypotenuse c:

 cos alpha = b:c ; ; c = b/ cos alpha = 105/ cos(10 ° ) = 106.62 ; ;

4. From hypotenuse c and angle α we calculate cathetus a:

 sin alpha = a:c ; ; a = c * sin alpha = 106.62 * sin(10 ° ) = 18.514 ; ;
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 = 18.51 ; ; b = 105 ; ; c = 106.62 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 18.51+105+106.62 = 230.13 ; ;

6. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 230.13 }{ 2 } = 115.07 ; ;

7. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 18.51 * 105 }{ 2 } = 972 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 105 ; ; h _b = a = 18.51 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 972 }{ 106.62 } = 18.23 ; ;

9. Calculation of the inner angles of the triangle - basic use of sine function

 sin alpha = fraction{ a }{ c } ; ; alpha = arcsin( fraction{ a }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 18.51 }{ 106.62 } ) = 10° ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 105 }{ 106.62 } ) = 80° ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

10. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 972 }{ 115.07 } = 8.45 ; ;

11. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 18.51 }{ 2 * sin 10° } = 53.31 ; ;

12. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 105**2+2 * 106.62**2 - 18.51**2 } }{ 2 } = 105.407 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 106.62**2+2 * 18.51**2 - 105**2 } }{ 2 } = 55.669 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 105**2+2 * 18.51**2 - 106.62**2 } }{ 2 } = 53.31 ; ;
