Calculate another triangle


How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus b and hypotenuse c

b = 1.784 ; ; c = 3.568 ; ;

2. From cathetus b and hypotenuse c we calculate cathetus a - Pythagorean theorem:

c**2 = a**2+b**2 ; ; a = sqrt{ c**2 - b**2 } = sqrt{ 3.568**2 - 1.784**2 } = 3.09 ; ;
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 = 3.09 ; ; b = 1.78 ; ; c = 3.57 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 3.09+1.78+3.57 = 8.44 ; ;

4. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 8.44 }{ 2 } = 4.22 ; ;

5. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 3.09 * 1.78 }{ 2 } = 2.76 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 1.78 ; ; h _b = a = 3.09 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 2.76 }{ 3.57 } = 1.55 ; ;

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{ 3.09 }{ 3.57 } ) = 60° ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 1.78 }{ 3.57 } ) = 30° ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

8. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 2.76 }{ 4.22 } = 0.65 ; ;

9. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 3.09 }{ 2 * sin 60° } = 1.78 ; ;

10. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 1.78**2+2 * 3.57**2 - 3.09**2 } }{ 2 } = 2.36 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 3.57**2+2 * 3.09**2 - 1.78**2 } }{ 2 } = 3.216 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 1.78**2+2 * 3.09**2 - 3.57**2 } }{ 2 } = 1.784 ; ;
