Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: hypotenuse c and angle α

c = 13.7 ; ; alpha = 16° ; ;

2. From angle α we calculate angle β:

 alpha + beta + 90° = 180° ; ; beta = 90° - alpha = 90° - 16 ° = 74 ° ; ;

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

 sin alpha = a:c ; ; a = c * sin alpha = 13.7 * sin(16 ° ) = 3.776 ; ;

4. From cathetus a and hypotenuse c we calculate cathetus b - Pythagorean theorem:

c**2 = a**2+b**2 ; ; b = sqrt{ c**2 - a**2 } = sqrt{ 13.7**2 - 3.776**2 } = 13.169 ; ;


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 = 3.78 ; ; b = 13.17 ; ; c = 13.7 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 3.78+13.17+13.7 = 30.65 ; ;

6. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 30.65 }{ 2 } = 15.32 ; ;

7. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 3.78 * 13.17 }{ 2 } = 24.87 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 13.17 ; ; h _b = a = 3.78 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 24.87 }{ 13.7 } = 3.63 ; ;

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{ 3.78 }{ 13.7 } ) = 16° ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 13.17 }{ 13.7 } ) = 74° ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

10. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 24.87 }{ 15.32 } = 1.62 ; ;

11. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 3.78 }{ 2 * sin 16° } = 6.85 ; ;

12. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 13.17**2+2 * 13.7**2 - 3.78**2 } }{ 2 } = 13.304 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 13.7**2+2 * 3.78**2 - 13.17**2 } }{ 2 } = 7.591 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 13.17**2+2 * 3.78**2 - 13.7**2 } }{ 2 } = 6.85 ; ;
