See also our right triangle calculator. Do you want to convert length units? Most natural application of trigonometry and trigonometric functions is a calculation of the triangles. Common and less common calculations of different types of triangles offers our triangle calculator. Word trigonometry comes from Greek and literally means triangle calculation.
