Law of Sine
Hi again, Well I have a problem doing the law of sine. Here is the question
1) Suppose you are given a triangle where:
A= 0.5 B= 1 and c= 6
Then
C= 1.641592
a=_____
b=_____
Note: In this problem angles are measured in radians.
How I already found that C is 1.641592 By PiAB = 1.641592. This is where I get confused at.
I use the law of sine
___a___ = ___6__ * sin(0.5)
sin(0.5) sin(1.641595)
a = ______6*sin(0.5)______ = .052359213
sin(1.641592)
a = 6*sin(0.5) / sin(1.641592)
a = 1.82772114
Well I know thats the wrong answer but what am I doing wrong?

" Note: In this problem angles are measured in radians. "
Really?
Did you follow that?
Then why did you use degrees in your computations?
If you use radians, you will get a = 2.883777.

oh... my mistake! I must have switch it back to degree when I was doing other problem. and I didn't realized it.
Thank you
