# The Law of Cosines

The Law of Cosines is a fundamental theorem in trigonometry, offering a powerful tool to calculate the lengths of sides and measures of angles in non-right triangles. Unlike the Pythagorean theorem, which applies exclusively to right-angled triangles, the Law of Cosines is versatile, extending its utility to all types of triangles. By providing a relationship between the lengths of the sides and the cosine of one of the angles, this law offers a comprehensive approach to solving triangles when the angle measures and side lengths are known. Its applications span across various fields, from mathematics and engineering to physics and navigation.
