Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

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

a = 24.688 ; ; b = 66.688 ; ; c = 57.438 ; ;


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 = 24.69 ; ; b = 66.69 ; ; c = 57.44 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 24.69+66.69+57.44 = 148.81 ; ;

3. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 148.81 }{ 2 } = 74.41 ; ;

4. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 74.41 * (74.41-24.69)(74.41-66.69)(74.41-57.44) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 484536.44 } = 696.09 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 696.09 }{ 24.69 } = 56.39 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 696.09 }{ 66.69 } = 20.88 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 696.09 }{ 57.44 } = 24.24 ; ;

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{ 24.69**2-66.69**2-57.44**2 }{ 2 * 66.69 * 57.44 } ) = 21° 18'46" ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 66.69**2-24.69**2-57.44**2 }{ 2 * 24.69 * 57.44 } ) = 100° 56'59" ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 57.44**2-24.69**2-66.69**2 }{ 2 * 66.69 * 24.69 } ) = 57° 44'16" ; ;

7. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 696.09 }{ 74.41 } = 9.36 ; ;

8. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 24.69 }{ 2 * sin 21° 18'46" } = 33.96 ; ;
