Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus a and angle β

a = 150 ; ; beta = 15° ; ;

2. From angle β we calculate angle α:

 alpha + beta + 90° = 180° ; ; alpha = 90° - beta = 90° - 15 ° = 75 ° ; ;

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

 sin alpha = a:c ; ; c = a/ sin alpha = 150/ sin(75 ° ) = 155.291 ; ;

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{ 155.291**2 - 150**2 } = 40.192 ; ;


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 = 150 ; ; b = 40.19 ; ; c = 155.29 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 150+40.19+155.29 = 345.48 ; ;

6. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 345.48 }{ 2 } = 172.74 ; ;

7. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 150 * 40.19 }{ 2 } = 3014.43 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 40.19 ; ; h _b = a = 150 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 3014.43 }{ 155.29 } = 38.82 ; ;

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{ 150 }{ 155.29 } ) = 75° ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 40.19 }{ 155.29 } ) = 15° ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

10. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 3014.43 }{ 172.74 } = 17.45 ; ;

11. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 150 }{ 2 * sin 75° } = 77.65 ; ;

12. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 40.19**2+2 * 155.29**2 - 150**2 } }{ 2 } = 85.091 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 155.29**2+2 * 150**2 - 40.19**2 } }{ 2 } = 151.34 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 40.19**2+2 * 150**2 - 155.29**2 } }{ 2 } = 77.646 ; ;
