Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: side a, b and c.

a = 54 ; ; b = 71 ; ; c = 44 ; ;


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 = 54 ; ; b = 71 ; ; c = 44 ; ; : Nr. 1

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

p = a+b+c = 54+71+44 = 169 ; ;

3. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 169 }{ 2 } = 84.5 ; ;

4. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 84.5 * (84.5-54)(84.5-71)(84.5-44) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 1409111.44 } = 1187.06 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 1187.06 }{ 54 } = 43.97 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 1187.06 }{ 71 } = 33.44 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 1187.06 }{ 44 } = 53.96 ; ;

6. Calculation of the inner angles of the triangle using a Law of Cosines

a**2 = b**2+c**2 - 2bc cos( alpha ) ; ; alpha = arccos( fraction{ a**2-b**2-c**2 }{ 2bc } ) = arccos( fraction{ 54**2-71**2-44**2 }{ 2 * 71 * 44 } ) = 49° 27'39" ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 71**2-54**2-44**2 }{ 2 * 54 * 44 } ) = 92° 16'46" ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 44**2-54**2-71**2 }{ 2 * 71 * 54 } ) = 38° 15'35" ; ;

7. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 1187.06 }{ 84.5 } = 14.05 ; ;

8. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 54 }{ 2 * sin 49° 27'39" } = 35.53 ; ;
