Greetings.
Given: I have a right triangle with sides of 5cm, 13cm, and sqrt(194)cm.
What is the equation to calculate the side of 5cm in radians? I'm pretty sure it involves atan, but am unsure how to implement it.
Thanks.
As Las said, angles are measured in radians, not the length of a side. It is true that so this is a right triangle. You can use any of the trig functions to answer this. Letting be the angle opposite the leg of length 5, we have
(1)
(2)
(3)
(4)
(5)
(6)
Use any one of those.
