Something special about the law of sines?
The Law of Sines says that, in any triangle, the sine of an angle, divided by the length of the opposite side, is constant.
A question not asked in high school texts is this: is there something special about the value of that constant. Does it measure something? Is it a clue about anything?
If you give up,
