soh-cah-toa calculator

1 Attachment(s)
So we all know the basic soh-cah-toa triangle calculator. I'm building a cabinet with lots of angles and would like an automated way to do this. Is there a online-site or app I can download that would let me enter the knowns and it would give me the unknowns?

Thanks.

Will this work?

That'll work.

Is there one that will go down the chain and solve ALL the other unknowns?
For example, entering leg-a and leg-b will allow solving for hypotenuse-c and angle-α.
Re-entering hypotenuse-c and angle-α will then allow solving for angle-b.

Thanks!

Cabinetmaking, Dan? Giving up on carbon-fiber car parts?

BTW: if you're bored, I could use some help with some shelves here.

Wife, two cats and dogs require a lot of custom funiture!!!
Although carbon-fibre is an interesting idea. I may lay down a layer or two on the inside!

App called Free Grafcalc by William Jockusch. Does tons of more advanced stuff but does have a triangle calculator.

Try Wolfram alpha. Type in a question and see if will figure it out
