Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: hypotenuse c and angle α

c = 52.8 ; ; alpha = 64.633° ; ;

2. From angle α we calculate angle β:

 alpha + beta + 90° = 180° ; ; beta = 90° - alpha = 90° - 64.633 ° = 25.367 ° ; ;

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

 sin alpha = a:c ; ; a = c * sin alpha = 52.8 * sin(64.633 ° ) = 47.709 ; ;

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{ 52.8**2 - 47.709**2 } = 22.62 ; ;


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 = 47.71 ; ; b = 22.62 ; ; c = 52.8 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 47.71+22.62+52.8 = 123.13 ; ;

6. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 123.13 }{ 2 } = 61.56 ; ;

7. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 47.71 * 22.62 }{ 2 } = 539.59 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 22.62 ; ; h _b = a = 47.71 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 539.59 }{ 52.8 } = 20.44 ; ;

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{ 47.71 }{ 52.8 } ) = 64° 38' ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 22.62 }{ 52.8 } ) = 25° 22' ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

10. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 539.59 }{ 61.56 } = 8.76 ; ;

11. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 47.71 }{ 2 * sin 64° 38' } = 26.4 ; ;

12. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 22.62**2+2 * 52.8**2 - 47.71**2 } }{ 2 } = 32.874 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 52.8**2+2 * 47.71**2 - 22.62**2 } }{ 2 } = 49.032 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 22.62**2+2 * 47.71**2 - 52.8**2 } }{ 2 } = 26.4 ; ;
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.
