Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: side a, b and angle γ.

a = 0.03 ; ; b = 0.33 ; ; gamma = 50° ; ;

2. Calculation of the third side c of the triangle using a Law of Cosines

c**2 = a**2+b**2 - 2ab cos gamma ; ; c = sqrt{ a**2+b**2 - 2ab cos gamma } ; ; c = sqrt{ 0.03**2+0.33**2 - 2 * 0.03 * 0.33 * cos(50° ) } ; ; c = 0.31 ; ;


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 = 0.03 ; ; b = 0.33 ; ; c = 0.31 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 0.03+0.33+0.31 = 0.67 ; ;

4. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 0.67 }{ 2 } = 0.34 ; ;

5. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 0.34 * (0.34-0.03)(0.34-0.33)(0.34-0.31) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 0 } = 0 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 0 }{ 0.03 } = 0.25 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 0 }{ 0.33 } = 0.02 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 0 }{ 0.31 } = 0.02 ; ;

7. 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{ 0.03**2-0.33**2-0.31**2 }{ 2 * 0.33 * 0.31 } ) = 4° 13'48" ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 0.33**2-0.03**2-0.31**2 }{ 2 * 0.03 * 0.31 } ) = 125° 46'12" ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 0.31**2-0.03**2-0.33**2 }{ 2 * 0.33 * 0.03 } ) = 50° ; ;

8. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 0 }{ 0.34 } = 0.01 ; ;

9. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 0.03 }{ 2 * sin 4° 13'48" } = 0.2 ; ;
