Sheet Metal/HVAC Pro provides instant solutions in dimensional format

for Right Triangle problems for sheet metal problems.

A Right Triangle is calculated simply by entering two of four variables:

1) (Run)

2) (Rise)

3) (Diagonal, or Hypotenuse); or

4) (Theta/Pitch).

x=Run — Enters or calculates “x,” or the Run or horizontal leg (base) of a Right Triangle.

y=Rise — Enters or calculates “y,” or the Rise or vertical leg (height) of a Right Triangle.

r=Hypotenuse or Diagonal ---Enters or calculates the Hypotenuse or diagonal leg of a Right Triangle.

=Theta---Enters or calculates the Pitch (slope) of a roof (or Right Triangle).

Sine means the relationship between the side opposite or rise of a triangle and its Hypotenuse |

Cosine means the relationship between the side adjacent or run of a triangle and its Hypotenuse |

Tangent means the relationship between the side adjacent or run of a triangle and the side Opposite or rise of a triangle |

Pythagorean Theorem |

TO FIND THE VOLUME OF A WEDGE1/2 TIMES ALTITUDE TIMES THE BASE TIME THE HEIGHT |

*

Area = Length times Width |

Area = Pi times the radius squared |

There are five formula that every Apprentice will know by the time they graduate. Look for the hands that tell you which ones are on all of your upgrade test s |

TO FIND THE CIRCUMFERENCE OF A CIRCLE PI TIMES THE DIAMETER |

Volume = Pi times the radius squared times the Height |

Volume =Length Times Width Times Height |

AREA = 1/2 TIMES THE BASE TIMES THE HEIGHT OR BASE TIMES THE HEIGHT DIVIDED BY 2 |
