Right triangle calculator
c2 = a2 + b2
where c is the length of the hypotenuse, and a and b are the lengths of the other two sides.
If you know the length of the hypotenuse and one of the other two sides, you can use the Pythagorean theorem to find the length of the remaining side. For example, if you know the length of the hypotenuse is c and the length of one of the legs is a, you can find the length of the other leg by:
b2 = c2 - a2
Additionally, you can use the Pythagorean theorem to find the measure of the angles in a right triangle. You can use the inverse trigonometric functions such as arctan, arcsin, arccos to find the angles.
If you know the side lengths, you can use the trigonometric functions to find the angles:
sin(A) = a/c
cos(A) = b/c
tan(A) = a/b
It's important to note that the Pythagorean theorem holds true only for right triangles. If the triangle is not a right triangle, this theorem will not work.The right triangle calculators compute angles, sides (adjacent, opposite, hypotenuse), and area of any right-angled triangle and use it in the real world. Two independent properties entirely determine any right-angled triangle. The calculator provides a step-by-step explanation for each calculation.
A right triangle is a kind of triangle that has one angle that measures C=90°. In a Right triangle, the side c that is opposite the C=90° angle and is the longest side of the triangle and is called the hypotenuse. The symbols a and b are the lengths of the shorter sides, also called legs or arms. Symbols for angles are A (or α alpha) and B (or β beta). Symbol h refers to the altitude (height) of the triangle, which is the length of the perpendicular line segment drawn from the vertex of the triangle to the hypotenuse.
Examples for right triangle calculation:
- two catheti a and b
- cathetus a and hypotenuse c
- cathetus a and opposite angle A
- cathetus a and adjacent angle B
- hypotenuse c and angle A
- hypotenuse c and height h
- area T and hypotenuse c
- area T and cathetus a
- area T and angle A
- circumradius R and cathetus b
- perimeter p and hypotenuse c
- perimeter p and cathetus a
- inradius r and cathetus a
- inradius r and area T
