Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

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

a = 2.66 ; ; b = 5.04 ; ; c = 5.7 ; ;


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 = 2.66 ; ; b = 5.04 ; ; c = 5.7 ; ; : Nr. 1

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

p = a+b+c = 2.66+5.04+5.7 = 13.4 ; ;

3. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 13.4 }{ 2 } = 6.7 ; ;

4. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 6.7 * (6.7-2.66)(6.7-5.04)(6.7-5.7) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 44.93 } = 6.7 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 6.7 }{ 2.66 } = 5.04 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 6.7 }{ 5.04 } = 2.66 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 6.7 }{ 5.7 } = 2.35 ; ;

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{ 5.04**2+5.7**2-2.66**2 }{ 2 * 5.04 * 5.7 } ) = 27° 49'5" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 2.66**2+5.7**2-5.04**2 }{ 2 * 2.66 * 5.7 } ) = 62° 9'16" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 27° 49'5" - 62° 9'16" = 90° 1'38" ; ;

7. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 6.7 }{ 6.7 } = 1 ; ;

8. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 2.66 }{ 2 * sin 27° 49'5" } = 2.85 ; ;

9. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 5.04**2+2 * 5.7**2 - 2.66**2 } }{ 2 } = 5.213 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 5.7**2+2 * 2.66**2 - 5.04**2 } }{ 2 } = 3.665 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 5.04**2+2 * 2.66**2 - 5.7**2 } }{ 2 } = 2.849 ; ;
