Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 16 ; ; b = 21 ; ; c = 26 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 16+21+26 = 63 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 63 }{ 2 } = 31.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 31.5 * (31.5-16)(31.5-21)(31.5-26) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 28196.44 } = 167.92 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 167.92 }{ 16 } = 20.99 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 167.92 }{ 21 } = 15.99 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 167.92 }{ 26 } = 12.92 ; ;

5. 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{ 21**2+26**2-16**2 }{ 2 * 21 * 26 } ) = 37° 57'29" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 16**2+26**2-21**2 }{ 2 * 16 * 26 } ) = 53° 49'58" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 37° 57'29" - 53° 49'58" = 88° 12'33" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 167.92 }{ 31.5 } = 5.33 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 16 }{ 2 * sin 37° 57'29" } = 13.01 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 21**2+2 * 26**2 - 16**2 } }{ 2 } = 22.237 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 26**2+2 * 16**2 - 21**2 } }{ 2 } = 18.861 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 21**2+2 * 16**2 - 26**2 } }{ 2 } = 13.398 ; ;
