Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

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

a = 59 ; ; b = 99 ; ; c = 100 ; ;


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 = 59 ; ; b = 99 ; ; c = 100 ; ; : Nr. 1

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

p = a+b+c = 59+99+100 = 258 ; ;

3. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 258 }{ 2 } = 129 ; ;

4. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 129 * (129-59)(129-99)(129-100) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 7856100 } = 2802.87 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 2802.87 }{ 59 } = 95.01 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 2802.87 }{ 99 } = 56.62 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 2802.87 }{ 100 } = 56.06 ; ;

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{ 59**2-99**2-100**2 }{ 2 * 99 * 100 } ) = 34° 29'18" ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 99**2-59**2-100**2 }{ 2 * 59 * 100 } ) = 71° 49'42" ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 100**2-59**2-99**2 }{ 2 * 99 * 59 } ) = 73° 41' ; ;

7. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 2802.87 }{ 129 } = 21.73 ; ;

8. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 59 }{ 2 * sin 34° 29'18" } = 52.1 ; ;
