  • Free shop program for trig, anyone know of one?

    A friend on another non machining related site asked me if I knew of any, I don't. I usually do it the old fashioned way or if I am lazy I use ACad. Anyways if you know of one thanks, if not thanks anyways. If you need more info I could ask him, but that is basically what he asked me(the title of the thread).

      Look for the TRIANGLE program. Assuming you know the required three pieces of
      information about the triangle, it will solve *any* triangle. It is not
      limited to right triangles.

          I use Kwiktrig.
          Very small program, pops up in a small window, solves most trig problems real quickly.

            Just tell him to use the "old" indian chief...........SOHCAHTOA (so....cah......toe ah)

            The 'S'ine of the angle is the 'O'pposite side length divided by the 'H'ypotenuse length.

            The 'C'osine of the angle is the 'A'djacent side length divided by the 'H'ypotenuse length.

            The 'T'angent of the angle is the 'O'pposite side length divided by the 'A'djacent side length.

            Of course that only works with "right" triangles, but is easy to remember..........
