Important Formulae and Terms on Heron’s Formula
- Area of Triangle: The total space inside the boundary of the triangle is known as area of the triangle.
- Area of triangle = ½ × base × height
- Area of equilateral triangle: Let the side of an equilateral triangle be k. Then, area of an equilateral triangle = (√3/4) k². Square units and altitude = (√3/2) k units.
- Area of an isosceles triangle: Let B be the base and S be the equal sides of an isosceles triangle, then area of an isosceles triangle = [B√(4S² – B²)]/2 square units.
- Perimeter: Perimeter of a triangle is equal to the sum of its three sides. It is denoted by 2s, where s is the semi-perimeter of a triangle.
- Heron’s Formula: The formula given by Heron about the area of a triangle is known as Heron’s formula. According to this formula, area of triangle = √[s (s – a)(s – b)(s – c)], where a, b and c are three sides of the triangle and s is the semi-perimeter. This formula is also used for finding the area of quadrilateral. In quadrilateral, we join one diagonal to divide the quadrilateral into two triangles and then find the area of each triangle separately by Heron’s formula.
