Calculate another triangle


How did we calculate this triangle?

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

p = a+b+c = 18.7+3.31+16.1 = 38.11 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 38.11 }{ 2 } = 19.06 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 19.06 * (19.06-18.7)(19.06-3.31)(19.06-16.1) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 314.73 } = 17.74 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 17.74 }{ 18.7 } = 1.9 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 17.74 }{ 3.31 } = 10.72 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 17.74 }{ 16.1 } = 2.2 ; ;

5. 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{ b**2+c**2-a**2 }{ 2bc } ) = arccos( fraction{ 3.31**2+16.1**2-18.7**2 }{ 2 * 3.31 * 16.1 } ) = 138° 15'22" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 18.7**2+16.1**2-3.31**2 }{ 2 * 18.7 * 16.1 } ) = 6° 46'5" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 138° 15'22" - 6° 46'5" = 34° 58'33" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 17.74 }{ 19.06 } = 0.93 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 18.7 }{ 2 * sin 138° 15'22" } = 14.04 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 3.31**2+2 * 16.1**2 - 18.7**2 } }{ 2 } = 6.904 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 16.1**2+2 * 18.7**2 - 3.31**2 } }{ 2 } = 17.37 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 3.31**2+2 * 18.7**2 - 16.1**2 } }{ 2 } = 10.748 ; ;
