Calculate another triangle


How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus b, angle α and angle γ

b = 3.5 ; ; alpha = 22.5° ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

2. From angle α we calculate angle β:

 alpha + beta + 90° = 180° ; ; beta = 90° - alpha = 90° - 22.5 ° = 67.5 ° ; ;

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

 cos alpha = b:c ; ; c = b/ cos alpha = 3.5/ cos(22.5 ° ) = 3.788 ; ;

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

 sin alpha = a:c ; ; a = c * sin alpha = 3.788 * sin(22.5 ° ) = 1.45 ; ;
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 = 1.45 ; ; b = 3.5 ; ; c = 3.79 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 1.45+3.5+3.79 = 8.74 ; ;

6. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 8.74 }{ 2 } = 4.37 ; ;

7. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 1.45 * 3.5 }{ 2 } = 2.54 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 3.5 ; ; h _b = a = 1.45 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 2.54 }{ 3.79 } = 1.34 ; ;

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{ 1.45 }{ 3.79 } ) = 22° 30' ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 3.5 }{ 3.79 } ) = 67° 30' ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

10. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 2.54 }{ 4.37 } = 0.58 ; ;

11. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 1.45 }{ 2 * sin 22° 30' } = 1.89 ; ;

12. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 3.5**2+2 * 3.79**2 - 1.45**2 } }{ 2 } = 3.574 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 3.79**2+2 * 1.45**2 - 3.5**2 } }{ 2 } = 2.273 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 3.5**2+2 * 1.45**2 - 3.79**2 } }{ 2 } = 1.894 ; ;
