Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: hypotenuse c and angle β

c = 100 ; ; beta = 40° ; ;

2. From angle β we calculate angle α:

 alpha + beta + 90° = 180° ; ; alpha = 90° - beta = 90° - 40 ° = 50 ° ; ;

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

 sin alpha = a:c ; ; a = c * sin alpha = 100 * sin(50 ° ) = 76.604 ; ;

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{ 100**2 - 76.604**2 } = 64.279 ; ;


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 = 76.6 ; ; b = 64.28 ; ; c = 100 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 76.6+64.28+100 = 240.88 ; ;

6. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 240.88 }{ 2 } = 120.44 ; ;

7. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 76.6 * 64.28 }{ 2 } = 2462.02 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 64.28 ; ; h _b = a = 76.6 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 2462.02 }{ 100 } = 49.24 ; ;

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{ 76.6 }{ 100 } ) = 50° ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 64.28 }{ 100 } ) = 40° ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

10. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 2462.02 }{ 120.44 } = 20.44 ; ;

11. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 76.6 }{ 2 * sin 50° } = 50 ; ;

12. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 64.28**2+2 * 100**2 - 76.6**2 } }{ 2 } = 74.825 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 100**2+2 * 76.6**2 - 64.28**2 } }{ 2 } = 83.073 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 64.28**2+2 * 76.6**2 - 100**2 } }{ 2 } = 50 ; ;
