Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

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

a = 1000 ; ; b = 1423 ; ; c = 1000 ; ;


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 = 1000 ; ; b = 1423 ; ; c = 1000 ; ; : Nr. 1

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

p = a+b+c = 1000+1423+1000 = 3423 ; ;

3. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 3423 }{ 2 } = 1711.5 ; ;

4. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 1711.5 * (1711.5-1000)(1711.5-1423)(1711.5-1000) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 249961159060 } = 499961.16 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 499961.16 }{ 1000 } = 999.92 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 499961.16 }{ 1423 } = 702.69 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 499961.16 }{ 1000 } = 999.92 ; ;

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{ 1000**2-1423**2-1000**2 }{ 2 * 1423 * 1000 } ) = 44° 38'34" ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 1423**2-1000**2-1000**2 }{ 2 * 1000 * 1000 } ) = 90° 42'51" ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 1000**2-1000**2-1423**2 }{ 2 * 1423 * 1000 } ) = 44° 38'34" ; ;

7. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 499961.16 }{ 1711.5 } = 292.12 ; ;

8. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 1000 }{ 2 * sin 44° 38'34" } = 711.56 ; ;
