Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus a and angle β

a = 860 ; ; beta = 22° ; ;

2. From angle β we calculate angle α:

 alpha + beta + 90° = 180° ; ; alpha = 90° - beta = 90° - 22 ° = 68 ° ; ;

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

 sin alpha = a:c ; ; c = a/ sin alpha = 860/ sin(68 ° ) = 927.54 ; ;

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{ 927.54**2 - 860**2 } = 347.463 ; ;


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 = 860 ; ; b = 347.46 ; ; c = 927.54 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 860+347.46+927.54 = 2135 ; ;

6. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 2135 }{ 2 } = 1067.5 ; ;

7. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 860 * 347.46 }{ 2 } = 149408.9 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 347.46 ; ; h _b = a = 860 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 149408.9 }{ 927.54 } = 322.16 ; ;

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{ 860 }{ 927.54 } ) = 68° ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 347.46 }{ 927.54 } ) = 22° ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

10. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 149408.9 }{ 1067.5 } = 139.96 ; ;

11. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 860 }{ 2 * sin 68° } = 463.77 ; ;

12. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 347.46**2+2 * 927.54**2 - 860**2 } }{ 2 } = 552.838 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 927.54**2+2 * 860**2 - 347.46**2 } }{ 2 } = 877.373 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 347.46**2+2 * 860**2 - 927.54**2 } }{ 2 } = 463.77 ; ;
