triangular; tri (see {Tri}) + angulus angle: cf. F.
triangle. See {Angle} a corner.]
1. (Geom.) A figure bounded by three lines, and containing
three angles.
Note: A triangle is either plane, spherical, or curvilinear,
according as its sides are straight lines, or arcs of
great circles of a sphere, or any curved lines
whatever. A plane triangle is designated as scalene,
isosceles, or equilateral, according as it has no two
sides equal, two sides equal, or all sides equal; and
also as rightangled, or obliqueangled, according as
it has one right angle, or none; and obliqueangled
triangle is either acuteangled, or obtuseangled,
according as all the angles are acute, or one of them
obtuse. The terms scalene, isosceles, equilateral,
rightangled, acuteangled, and obtuseangled, are
applied to spherical triangles in the same sense as to
plane triangles.

{Triangle spider} (Zo["o]l.), a small American spider

tight, but lets go and springs the net when an insect
comes in contact with it.
