Calculate another triangle


How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus a and hypotenuse c

a = 230 ; ; c = 265 ; ;

2. 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{ 265**2 - 230**2 } = 131.624 ; ;
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 = 230 ; ; b = 131.62 ; ; c = 265 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 230+131.62+265 = 626.62 ; ;

4. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 626.62 }{ 2 } = 313.31 ; ;

5. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 230 * 131.62 }{ 2 } = 15136.81 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 131.62 ; ; h _b = a = 230 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 15136.81 }{ 265 } = 114.24 ; ;

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{ 230 }{ 265 } ) = 60° 13'6" ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 131.62 }{ 265 } ) = 29° 46'54" ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

8. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 15136.81 }{ 313.31 } = 48.31 ; ;

9. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 230 }{ 2 * sin 60° 13'6" } = 132.5 ; ;

10. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 131.62**2+2 * 265**2 - 230**2 } }{ 2 } = 174.786 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 265**2+2 * 230**2 - 131.62**2 } }{ 2 } = 239.231 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 131.62**2+2 * 230**2 - 265**2 } }{ 2 } = 132.5 ; ;
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.
