Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: hypotenuse c and angle α

c = 1180 ; ; alpha = 66° ; ;

2. From angle α we calculate angle β:

 alpha + beta + 90° = 180° ; ; beta = 90° - alpha = 90° - 66 ° = 24 ° ; ;

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

 sin alpha = a:c ; ; a = c * sin alpha = 1180 * sin(66 ° ) = 1077.984 ; ;

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{ 1180**2 - 1077.984**2 } = 479.949 ; ;
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 = 1077.98 ; ; b = 479.95 ; ; c = 1180 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 1077.98+479.95+1180 = 2737.93 ; ;

6. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 2737.93 }{ 2 } = 1368.97 ; ;

7. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 1077.98 * 479.95 }{ 2 } = 258688.71 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 479.95 ; ; h _b = a = 1077.98 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 258688.71 }{ 1180 } = 438.46 ; ;

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{ 1077.98 }{ 1180 } ) = 66° ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 479.95 }{ 1180 } ) = 24° ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

10. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 258688.71 }{ 1368.97 } = 188.97 ; ;

11. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 1077.98 }{ 2 * sin 66° } = 590 ; ;

12. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 479.95**2+2 * 1180**2 - 1077.98**2 } }{ 2 } = 721.709 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 1180**2+2 * 1077.98**2 - 479.95**2 } }{ 2 } = 1104.372 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 479.95**2+2 * 1077.98**2 - 1180**2 } }{ 2 } = 590 ; ;
