Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus b and hypotenuse c

b = 0.556 ; ; c = 50 ; ;

2. From b and c we calculate side a - Pythagorean theorem:

c**2 = a**2+b**2 ; ; a = sqrt{ c**2 - b**2 } = sqrt{ 50**2 - 43.708**2 } = 24.282 ; ;


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 = 24.28 ; ; b = 43.71 ; ; c = 50 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 24.28+43.71+50 = 117.99 ; ;

4. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 117.99 }{ 2 } = 59 ; ;

5. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 24.28 * 43.71 }{ 2 } = 530.66 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 43.71 ; ; h _b = a = 24.28 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 530.66 }{ 50 } = 21.23 ; ;

7. 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{ 24.28 }{ 50 } ) = 29° 3'17" ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 43.71 }{ 50 } ) = 60° 56'43" ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

8. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 530.66 }{ 59 } = 9 ; ;

9. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 24.28 }{ 2 * sin 29° 3'17" } = 25 ; ;

10. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 43.71**2+2 * 50**2 - 24.28**2 } }{ 2 } = 45.363 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 50**2+2 * 24.28**2 - 43.71**2 } }{ 2 } = 32.668 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 43.71**2+2 * 24.28**2 - 50**2 } }{ 2 } = 25 ; ;
Calculate another triangle

Trigonometry right triangle solver. You can calculate angles, sides (adjacent, opposite, hypotenuse) and area of any right-angled triangle and use it in real world to find height. A right-angled triangle is entirely determined by two independent properties. Step-by-step explanations are provided for each calculation.
