Right triangle calculator
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
- Medians ma and mb
