Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

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

a = 1060 ; ; b = 851 ; ; c = 904 ; ;


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 = 1060 ; ; b = 851 ; ; c = 904 ; ; : Nr. 1

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

p = a+b+c = 1060+851+904 = 2815 ; ;

3. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 2815 }{ 2 } = 1407.5 ; ;

4. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 1407.5 * (1407.5-1060)(1407.5-851)(1407.5-904) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 137046470761 } = 370197.88 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 370197.88 }{ 1060 } = 698.49 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 370197.88 }{ 851 } = 870.03 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 370197.88 }{ 904 } = 819.02 ; ;

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{ 1060**2-851**2-904**2 }{ 2 * 851 * 904 } ) = 74° 14'35" ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 851**2-1060**2-904**2 }{ 2 * 1060 * 904 } ) = 50° 35'37" ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 904**2-1060**2-851**2 }{ 2 * 851 * 1060 } ) = 55° 9'48" ; ;

7. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 370197.88 }{ 1407.5 } = 263.02 ; ;

8. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 1060 }{ 2 * sin 74° 14'35" } = 550.69 ; ;
