Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus b and hypotenuse c

b = 1.3 ; ; c = 7.6 ; ;

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{ 7.6**2 - 1.3**2 } = 7.488 ; ;
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 = 7.49 ; ; b = 1.3 ; ; c = 7.6 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 7.49+1.3+7.6 = 16.39 ; ;

4. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 16.39 }{ 2 } = 8.19 ; ;

5. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 7.49 * 1.3 }{ 2 } = 4.87 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 1.3 ; ; h _b = a = 7.49 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 4.87 }{ 7.6 } = 1.28 ; ;

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{ 7.49 }{ 7.6 } ) = 80° 9'3" ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 1.3 }{ 7.6 } ) = 9° 50'57" ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

8. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 4.87 }{ 8.19 } = 0.59 ; ;

9. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 7.49 }{ 2 * sin 80° 9'3" } = 3.8 ; ;

10. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 1.3**2+2 * 7.6**2 - 7.49**2 } }{ 2 } = 3.963 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 7.6**2+2 * 7.49**2 - 1.3**2 } }{ 2 } = 7.516 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 1.3**2+2 * 7.49**2 - 7.6**2 } }{ 2 } = 3.8 ; ;
