Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus a cathetus b hypotenuse c

a = 60 ; ; b = 80 ; ; c = 100 ; ;


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 = 60 ; ; b = 80 ; ; c = 100 ; ; : Nr. 1

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

p = a+b+c = 60+80+100 = 240 ; ;

3. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 240 }{ 2 } = 120 ; ;

4. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 120 * (120-60)(120-80)(120-100) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 5760000 } = 2400 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 2400 }{ 60 } = 80 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 2400 }{ 80 } = 60 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 2400 }{ 100 } = 48 ; ;

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{ 60**2-80**2-100**2 }{ 2 * 80 * 100 } ) = 36° 52'12" ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 80**2-60**2-100**2 }{ 2 * 60 * 100 } ) = 53° 7'48" ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 100**2-60**2-80**2 }{ 2 * 80 * 60 } ) = 90° ; ;

7. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 2400 }{ 120 } = 20 ; ;

8. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 60 }{ 2 * sin 36° 52'12" } = 50 ; ;
