Calculate another triangle


How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus a and cathetus b

a = 48 ; ; b = 48 ; ;

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{ 48**2 + 48**2 } = sqrt{ 4608 } = 67.882 ; ;
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 = 48 ; ; b = 48 ; ; c = 67.88 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 48+48+67.88 = 163.88 ; ;

4. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 163.88 }{ 2 } = 81.94 ; ;

5. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 48 * 48 }{ 2 } = 1152 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 48 ; ; h _b = a = 48 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 1152 }{ 67.88 } = 33.94 ; ;

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{ 48 }{ 67.88 } ) = 45° ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 48 }{ 67.88 } ) = 45° ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

8. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 1152 }{ 81.94 } = 14.06 ; ;

9. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 48 }{ 2 * sin 45° } = 33.94 ; ;

10. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 48**2+2 * 67.88**2 - 48**2 } }{ 2 } = 53.666 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 67.88**2+2 * 48**2 - 48**2 } }{ 2 } = 53.666 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 48**2+2 * 48**2 - 67.88**2 } }{ 2 } = 33.941 ; ;
