Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus b and angle β

b = 0.24 ; ; beta = 38° ; ;

2. From angle β we calculate angle α:

 alpha + beta + 90° = 180° ; ; alpha = 90° - beta = 90° - 38 ° = 52 ° ; ;

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

 cos alpha = b:c ; ; c = b/ cos alpha = 0.24/ cos(52 ° ) = 0.39 ; ;

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

 sin alpha = a:c ; ; a = c * sin alpha = 0.39 * sin(52 ° ) = 0.307 ; ;
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 = 0.31 ; ; b = 0.24 ; ; c = 0.39 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 0.31+0.24+0.39 = 0.94 ; ;

6. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 0.94 }{ 2 } = 0.47 ; ;

7. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 0.31 * 0.24 }{ 2 } = 0.04 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 0.24 ; ; h _b = a = 0.31 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 0.04 }{ 0.39 } = 0.19 ; ;

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{ 0.31 }{ 0.39 } ) = 52° ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 0.24 }{ 0.39 } ) = 38° ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

10. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 0.04 }{ 0.47 } = 0.08 ; ;

11. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 0.31 }{ 2 * sin 52° } = 0.19 ; ;

12. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 0.24**2+2 * 0.39**2 - 0.31**2 } }{ 2 } = 0.285 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 0.39**2+2 * 0.31**2 - 0.24**2 } }{ 2 } = 0.33 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 0.24**2+2 * 0.31**2 - 0.39**2 } }{ 2 } = 0.195 ; ;
