Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Calculation of the third side c of the triangle using a Law of Cosines

a = 0.5 ; ; b = 0.5 ; ; gamma = 90° ; ; ; ; c**2 = a**2+b**2 - 2ab cos( gamma ) ; ; c = sqrt{ a**2+b**2 - 2ab cos( gamma ) } ; ; c = sqrt{ 0.5**2+0.5**2 - 2 * 0.5 * 0.5 * cos(90° ) } ; ; c = 0.71 ; ;


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 = 0.5 ; ; b = 0.5 ; ; c = 0.71 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 0.5+0.5+0.71 = 1.71 ; ;

3. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 1.71 }{ 2 } = 0.85 ; ;

4. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 0.85 * (0.85-0.5)(0.85-0.5)(0.85-0.71) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 0.02 } = 0.13 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 0.13 }{ 0.5 } = 0.5 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 0.13 }{ 0.5 } = 0.5 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 0.13 }{ 0.71 } = 0.35 ; ;

6. 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{ 0.5**2-0.5**2-0.71**2 }{ 2 * 0.5 * 0.71 } ) = 45° ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 0.5**2-0.5**2-0.71**2 }{ 2 * 0.5 * 0.71 } ) = 45° ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 0.71**2-0.5**2-0.5**2 }{ 2 * 0.5 * 0.5 } ) = 90° ; ;

7. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 0.13 }{ 0.85 } = 0.15 ; ;

8. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 0.5 }{ 2 * sin 45° } = 0.35 ; ;
