Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: hypotenuse c and height h

c = 36 ; ; h = 12 ; ;

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 -36 * c_1 + 144 = 0 ; ; ; ; c_1 = 31.416 ; ; c_2 = 4.584 ; ; ; ; a = sqrt{ c_1**2+h**2 } = sqrt{ 31.416**2+12**2 } = 33.63 ; ; b = sqrt{ c_2**2+h**2 } = sqrt{ 4.584**2+12**2 } = 12.846 ; ;


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 = 33.63 ; ; b = 12.85 ; ; c = 36 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 33.63+12.85+36 = 82.48 ; ;

4. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 82.48 }{ 2 } = 41.24 ; ;

5. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 33.63 * 12.85 }{ 2 } = 216 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 12.85 ; ; h _b = a = 33.63 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 216 }{ 36 } = 12 ; ;

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{ 33.63 }{ 36 } ) = 69° 5'41" ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 12.85 }{ 36 } ) = 20° 54'19" ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

8. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 216 }{ 41.24 } = 5.24 ; ;

9. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 33.63 }{ 2 * sin 69° 5'41" } = 18 ; ;

10. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 12.85**2+2 * 36**2 - 33.63**2 } }{ 2 } = 21.16 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 36**2+2 * 33.63**2 - 12.85**2 } }{ 2 } = 34.238 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 12.85**2+2 * 33.63**2 - 36**2 } }{ 2 } = 18 ; ;
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.
