Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus b and angle α

b = 92 ; ; alpha = 16.5° ; ;

2. From angle α we calculate angle β:

 alpha + beta + 90° = 180° ; ; beta = 90° - alpha = 90° - 16.5 ° = 73.5 ° ; ;

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

 cos alpha = b:c ; ; c = b/ cos alpha = 92/ cos(16.5 ° ) = 95.951 ; ;

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

 sin alpha = a:c ; ; a = c * sin alpha = 95.951 * sin(16.5 ° ) = 27.252 ; ;


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 = 27.25 ; ; b = 92 ; ; c = 95.95 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 27.25+92+95.95 = 215.2 ; ;

6. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 215.2 }{ 2 } = 107.6 ; ;

7. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 27.25 * 92 }{ 2 } = 1253.58 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 92 ; ; h _b = a = 27.25 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 1253.58 }{ 95.95 } = 26.13 ; ;

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{ 27.25 }{ 95.95 } ) = 16° 30' ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 92 }{ 95.95 } ) = 73° 30' ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

10. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 1253.58 }{ 107.6 } = 11.65 ; ;

11. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 27.25 }{ 2 * sin 16° 30' } = 47.98 ; ;

12. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 92**2+2 * 95.95**2 - 27.25**2 } }{ 2 } = 93.004 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 95.95**2+2 * 27.25**2 - 92**2 } }{ 2 } = 53.466 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 92**2+2 * 27.25**2 - 95.95**2 } }{ 2 } = 47.976 ; ;
