Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

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

a = 163 ; ; b = 52 ; ; c = 125 ; ;


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 = 163 ; ; b = 52 ; ; c = 125 ; ; : Nr. 1

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

p = a+b+c = 163+52+125 = 340 ; ;

3. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 340 }{ 2 } = 170 ; ;

4. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 170 * (170-163)(170-52)(170-125) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 6318900 } = 2513.74 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 2513.74 }{ 163 } = 30.84 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 2513.74 }{ 52 } = 96.68 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 2513.74 }{ 125 } = 40.22 ; ;

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{ 163**2-52**2-125**2 }{ 2 * 52 * 125 } ) = 129° 20'4" ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 52**2-163**2-125**2 }{ 2 * 163 * 125 } ) = 14° 17'7" ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 125**2-163**2-52**2 }{ 2 * 52 * 163 } ) = 36° 22'49" ; ;

7. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 2513.74 }{ 170 } = 14.79 ; ;

8. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 163 }{ 2 * sin 129° 20'4" } = 105.37 ; ;
