Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus b and angle α

b = 1.8 ; ; alpha = 33.7° ; ;

2. From angle α we calculate angle β:

 alpha + beta + 90° = 180° ; ; beta = 90° - alpha = 90° - 33.7 ° = 56.3 ° ; ;

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

 cos alpha = b:c ; ; c = b/ cos alpha = 1.8/ cos(33.7 ° ) = 2.164 ; ;

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

 sin alpha = a:c ; ; a = c * sin alpha = 2.164 * sin(33.7 ° ) = 1.2 ; ;
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 = 1.2 ; ; b = 1.8 ; ; c = 2.16 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 1.2+1.8+2.16 = 5.16 ; ;

6. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 5.16 }{ 2 } = 2.58 ; ;

7. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 1.2 * 1.8 }{ 2 } = 1.08 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 1.8 ; ; h _b = a = 1.2 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 1.08 }{ 2.16 } = 1 ; ;

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{ 1.2 }{ 2.16 } ) = 33° 42' ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 1.8 }{ 2.16 } ) = 56° 18' ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

10. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 1.08 }{ 2.58 } = 0.42 ; ;

11. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 1.2 }{ 2 * sin 33° 42' } = 1.08 ; ;

12. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 1.8**2+2 * 2.16**2 - 1.2**2 } }{ 2 } = 1.897 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 2.16**2+2 * 1.2**2 - 1.8**2 } }{ 2 } = 1.5 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 1.8**2+2 * 1.2**2 - 2.16**2 } }{ 2 } = 1.082 ; ;
