Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus b and hypotenuse c

b = 6378.1 ; ; c = 6378.116 ; ;

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{ 6378.116**2 - 6378.1**2 } = 14.286 ; ;


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 = 14.29 ; ; b = 6378.1 ; ; c = 6378.12 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 14.29+6378.1+6378.12 = 12770.5 ; ;

4. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 12770.5 }{ 2 } = 6385.25 ; ;

5. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 14.29 * 6378.1 }{ 2 } = 45559.85 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 6378.1 ; ; h _b = a = 14.29 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 45559.85 }{ 6378.12 } = 14.29 ; ;

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{ 14.29 }{ 6378.12 } ) = 0° 7'42" ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 6378.1 }{ 6378.12 } ) = 89° 52'18" ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

8. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 45559.85 }{ 6385.25 } = 7.14 ; ;

9. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 14.29 }{ 2 * sin 0° 7'42" } = 3189.06 ; ;

10. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 6378.1**2+2 * 6378.12**2 - 14.29**2 } }{ 2 } = 6378.104 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 6378.12**2+2 * 14.29**2 - 6378.1**2 } }{ 2 } = 3189.082 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 6378.1**2+2 * 14.29**2 - 6378.12**2 } }{ 2 } = 3189.058 ; ;
