Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus b and angle α

b = 1.5 ; ; alpha = 70° ; ;

2. From angle α we calculate angle β:

 alpha + beta + 90° = 180° ; ; beta = 90° - alpha = 90° - 70 ° = 20 ° ; ;

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

 cos alpha = b:c ; ; c = b/ cos alpha = 1.5/ cos(70 ° ) = 4.386 ; ;

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

 sin alpha = a:c ; ; a = c * sin alpha = 4.386 * sin(70 ° ) = 4.121 ; ;


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 = 4.12 ; ; b = 1.5 ; ; c = 4.39 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 4.12+1.5+4.39 = 10.01 ; ;

6. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 10.01 }{ 2 } = 5 ; ;

7. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 4.12 * 1.5 }{ 2 } = 3.09 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 1.5 ; ; h _b = a = 4.12 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 3.09 }{ 4.39 } = 1.41 ; ;

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{ 4.12 }{ 4.39 } ) = 70° ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 1.5 }{ 4.39 } ) = 20° ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

10. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 3.09 }{ 5 } = 0.62 ; ;

11. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 4.12 }{ 2 * sin 70° } = 2.19 ; ;

12. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 1.5**2+2 * 4.39**2 - 4.12**2 } }{ 2 } = 2.549 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 4.39**2+2 * 4.12**2 - 1.5**2 } }{ 2 } = 4.189 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 1.5**2+2 * 4.12**2 - 4.39**2 } }{ 2 } = 2.193 ; ;
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.
