Calculate another triangle


How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: hypotenuse c and height h

c = 200 ; ; h = 60 ; ;

2. From hypotenuse c and height h we calculate a,b - Pythagorean theorem, Euclid's theorem:

c = c_1+c_2 ; ; h**2 = c_1 * c_2 ; ; ; ; h**2 = c_1 * (c-c_1) ; ; h**2 = c_1 * c-c_1 **2 ; ; ; ; c_1**2 -c_1 * c + h**2 = 0 ; ; ; ; c_1**2 -200 * c_1 + 3600 = 0 ; ; ; ; c_1 = 180 ; ; c_2 = 20 ; ; ; ; a = sqrt{ c_1**2+h**2 } = sqrt{ 180**2+60**2 } = 189.737 ; ; b = sqrt{ c_2**2+h**2 } = sqrt{ 20**2+60**2 } = 63.246 ; ;
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 = 189.74 ; ; b = 63.25 ; ; c = 200 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 189.74+63.25+200 = 452.98 ; ;

4. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 452.98 }{ 2 } = 226.49 ; ;

5. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 189.74 * 63.25 }{ 2 } = 6000 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 63.25 ; ; h _b = a = 189.74 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 6000 }{ 200 } = 60 ; ;

7. 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{ 189.74 }{ 200 } ) = 71° 33'54" ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 63.25 }{ 200 } ) = 18° 26'6" ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

8. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 6000 }{ 226.49 } = 26.49 ; ;

9. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 189.74 }{ 2 * sin 71° 33'54" } = 100 ; ;

10. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 63.25**2+2 * 200**2 - 189.74**2 } }{ 2 } = 114.018 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 200**2+2 * 189.74**2 - 63.25**2 } }{ 2 } = 192.354 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 63.25**2+2 * 189.74**2 - 200**2 } }{ 2 } = 100 ; ;
