Search: triangle AC is 194cm. What is the length of BD

Number of results: 10,560

alegbra 2
Did you make a sketch? Doesn't ABC form a right-angled triangle? How long is AC ? (use Pythagoras to find it is always 5 inches) So as A is fixed, isn't AC always 5 as the triangle is rotated about A ? So I see a circle with centre at A and a radius of AC = 5.

sorry i dont see a picture. But, I'll explain what should be seen. Make a right triangle. From the angle <B, where B is 90 degrees, draw an altitude down to CA. Call that point D. We see that ABC and BCD are similar triangles. BC/CD=AC/BC, so BC^2=AC*CD. Likewise, ADB is ...

The circle radius is 5 cm. That comes from the area. The triangle ACB is a right triangle with AB as a diameter. The length of AB is 10 cm, since it is a diameter (AC)^2 + (BC)^2 = (AB)^2 = 100 Area = (1/2)(AB)*(BC) = 11 (AC)*(BC) = 22 (BC)=22/(AC) (AC)^2 + 484/(AC)^2 = 100 ...

All right-triangles inscribe in a circle with a diameter equal to the hypotenuse. Therefore for the 30-60-90 triangle, the radius of the circle is 6 inches, and the short side is also 6 inches. The height is 6sqrt(3), so the area of the triangle is At=36sqrt(3)/2 = 18 sqrt(3) ...

C must be the right angle. You have 3 similar triangle, the original and 2 smaller ones let the altitude be h 2/h = h/16 h^2 = 32 h = √32 in the smaller right-angled triangle h^2 + 2^2 = BC^2 BC^2 = 32 + 4 = 36 BC = 6 In the other right-angled triangle: AC^2 = h^2 + 16^2...

Vectors
let AB represent vector AB, and AC as vector AC AB = (-2,-6,-3), |AB| = 7 AC = )3,-1,-11) |AC| = √131 AB•AC = |AB||AC|cos Ø cosØ = 33/(7√131) Ø = 65.676 area = (1/2)(AB)(AC)sinØ = 36.5

Total Acceleration will consist of Centripetal (which is in the same direction as the r vector) and Tangential (which at any given moment will be your retarding one. With that we can set up a triangle that gives us the angle needed. Since we don't know radius we can use V=r2Pi...
