Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus a and cathetus b

a = 40 ; ; b = 44.42 ; ;

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{ 40**2 + 44.42**2 } = 59.776 ; ;
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 = 40 ; ; b = 44.42 ; ; c = 59.78 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 40+44.42+59.78 = 144.2 ; ;

4. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 144.2 }{ 2 } = 72.1 ; ;

5. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 40 * 44.42 }{ 2 } = 888.4 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 44.42 ; ; h _b = a = 40 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 888.4 }{ 59.78 } = 29.72 ; ;

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{ 40 }{ 59.78 } ) = 42° 10" ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 44.42 }{ 59.78 } ) = 47° 59'50" ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

8. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 888.4 }{ 72.1 } = 12.32 ; ;

9. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 40 }{ 2 * sin 42° 10" } = 29.89 ; ;

10. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 44.42**2+2 * 59.78**2 - 40**2 } }{ 2 } = 48.715 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 59.78**2+2 * 40**2 - 44.42**2 } }{ 2 } = 45.752 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 44.42**2+2 * 40**2 - 59.78**2 } }{ 2 } = 29.888 ; ;
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.
