Calculate another triangle


How did we calculate this triangle?

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

a = 310 ; ; b = 466 ; ; c = 400 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 310+466+400 = 1176 ; ;

3. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 1176 }{ 2 } = 588 ; ;

4. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 588 * (588-310)(588-466)(588-400) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 3749210304 } = 61230.8 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 61230.8 }{ 310 } = 395.04 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 61230.8 }{ 466 } = 262.79 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 61230.8 }{ 400 } = 306.15 ; ;

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{ b**2+c**2-a**2 }{ 2bc } ) = arccos( fraction{ 466**2+400**2-310**2 }{ 2 * 466 * 400 } ) = 41° 4'13" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 310**2+400**2-466**2 }{ 2 * 310 * 400 } ) = 80° 57'55" ; ;
 gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 41° 4'13" - 80° 57'55" = 57° 57'52" ; ;

7. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 61230.8 }{ 588 } = 104.13 ; ;

8. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 310 }{ 2 * sin 41° 4'13" } = 235.93 ; ;

9. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 466**2+2 * 400**2 - 310**2 } }{ 2 } = 405.651 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 400**2+2 * 310**2 - 466**2 } }{ 2 } = 271.59 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 466**2+2 * 310**2 - 400**2 } }{ 2 } = 341.508 ; ;
