Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

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

a = 98 ; ; b = 76 ; ; c = 57 ; ;


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 = 98 ; ; b = 76 ; ; c = 57 ; ; : Nr. 1

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

p = a+b+c = 98+76+57 = 231 ; ;

3. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 231 }{ 2 } = 115.5 ; ;

4. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 115.5 * (115.5-98)(115.5-76)(115.5-57) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 4670603.44 } = 2161.16 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 2161.16 }{ 98 } = 44.11 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 2161.16 }{ 76 } = 56.87 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 2161.16 }{ 57 } = 75.83 ; ;

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{ 98**2-76**2-57**2 }{ 2 * 76 * 57 } ) = 93° 49'55" ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 76**2-98**2-57**2 }{ 2 * 98 * 57 } ) = 50° 41'39" ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 57**2-98**2-76**2 }{ 2 * 76 * 98 } ) = 35° 28'26" ; ;

7. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 2161.16 }{ 115.5 } = 18.71 ; ;

8. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 98 }{ 2 * sin 93° 49'55" } = 49.11 ; ;
