The Cosine Rule is used in triangles where one is trying to relate all three sides to one angle. If you need to find the length of a side, you need to know the other two sides and the opposite angle.
a2 = b2 + c2 – 2bc cos(A)
Side a is the one you are trying to find. Sides b and c are the other two sides, and angle A is the angle opposite side a
Christiano Ronaldo is taking a shot at a standard 24 foot goal post. He is 32 feet away from one goal post and 45 feet from the other. Through what angle can a goal be made?
Explanation : cosine rule
We will aply cosine tule to this problem because we know the three lengths.
24ft ^2 = 32ft ^2 + 45ft ^2 – 2(32ft)(45ft) cos θ θ = cos−1 (24 ft ^2 – 32 ft^2 – 45ft^2) / -2(32ft)(45ft)
θ = 30.8312430
CR7 would have to shoot the ball around 31 degrees to score a goal.
