Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus a and cathetus b

a = 2.4 ; ; b = 100 ; ;

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

c**2 = a**2+b**2 ; ; c = sqrt{ a**2+b**2 } = sqrt{ 2.4**2 + 100**2 } = 100.029 ; ;


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 = 2.4 ; ; b = 100 ; ; c = 100.03 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 2.4+100+100.03 = 202.43 ; ;

4. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 202.43 }{ 2 } = 101.21 ; ;

5. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 2.4 * 100 }{ 2 } = 120 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 100 ; ; h _b = a = 2.4 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 120 }{ 100.03 } = 2.4 ; ;

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{ 2.4 }{ 100.03 } ) = 1° 22'29" ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 100 }{ 100.03 } ) = 88° 37'31" ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

8. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 120 }{ 101.21 } = 1.19 ; ;

9. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 2.4 }{ 2 * sin 1° 22'29" } = 50.01 ; ;

10. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 100**2+2 * 100.03**2 - 2.4**2 } }{ 2 } = 100.007 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 100.03**2+2 * 2.4**2 - 100**2 } }{ 2 } = 50.058 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 100**2+2 * 2.4**2 - 100.03**2 } }{ 2 } = 50.014 ; ;
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.
