Orthocenter to centroid distance
Posted:
Jan 1, 2005 1:42 PM


I would like to know the distance between orthocenter and centroid in a traingle and the area of the triangle when the length of a side is a given and distances from centroid to the sides are given.
the length of side a, and distances from the centroid to sides a, b and c. are given . how to find the area and distance between orthocenter and centroid in a scalene triangle.
What is the distance between orthocenter and centroid . If the coordinates are known then i can write the equations.
Let ABC be the trinagle with sides a ,b ,c and centroid is I and orthocenter is O. I can find the area of BCI because i know the distances of 3 sides. But how to calculate the area of the triangle ? The second question is how to calculate the distance between I and O.
