Right Angeled Triangle

Right angeled triangle equations

Sponsored Links

A right triangle - or a right angled triangle - is a triangle in which one of the angles is a right angle - a 90 degree angle.

The length of the hypotenuse of aright triangle can be calculated as

c = (a2 + b2)1/2                                     (1)

The other sides can be calculated as

a = (c2 - b2)1/2                                     (2)

b = (c2 - a2)1/2                                     (3)

The angle θ can be calculated as

θ = atan b/a

   = arctan b/a

   = tan-1 b/a                                       (4)

Example - Right Triangle 

The length of the hypotenuse where a = 1.7 m and b = 1 m can be calculated as

c = ((1.7 m)2 + (1 m)2)1/2

  = 1.97 m

The angle θ can be calculated as

θ = atan ((1 m) / (1 m))

   = 30.5o
