# Cosine Law Calculator and Solver

Online calculator, based on the cosine Law , to solve triangle problems. The first calculator solves triangle problems when 3 sides are given (SSS case) and the second calculator solves triangle problems when 2 sides and their included angle are given (SAS case).

The cosine laws is given by:

1)

*a*

^{ 2}= b^{ 2}+ c^{ 2}- 2 b c cos(A)which gives

^{ 2}+ c

^{ 2}- a

^{ 2}) / 2 b c ]

2)

*b*

^{ 2}= a^{ 2}+ c^{ 2}- 2 a c cos(B)which gives

^{ 2}+ c

^{ 2}- b

^{ 2}) / 2 a c ]

3)

*c*

^{ 2}= b^{ 2}+ a^{ 2}- 2 b a cos(C)which gives

^{ 2}+ a

^{ 2}- c

^{ 2}) / 2 a b ]

## 1 - Solve Triangle Problem when 3 Sides are Given (SSS case)

__How to use the calculator__Enter the 3 sides a, b and c as positive real numbers and press "enter". The outputs are the 3 angles A (opposite side a), B (opposite side b) and C (opposite side c) in DEGREES.

Note For a triangle to exist, the sum of any two sides must be greater than the third side.

## 2 - Solve Triangle Problem when 2 Sides and the Included Angle are Given (SAS case)

__How to use the calculator__Enter the given angle in A (in DEGREES) and the two sides in b and c as positive real numbers and press "enter". The outputs are side a and 2 angles B (opposite side b) and C (opposite side c) in DEGREES.
