Dear krishnan,

coordinates of orthocentre for this triangle (cost +sint +1)/3 , (sint - cost +2 )/3

h = (cost +sint +1)/3     k =   (sint - cost +2 )/3

 

(3h-1)2= (cost +sint)2 ---1     (3k-2)2 = (sint - cost)2---2             

now squaring 1 and 2 and adding them we get

9(h2+k2)-6h -12k +3 = 0 

now replacing h , k by x, y

9(x2+y2)-6x -12y +3 = 0   is the locus of the coordinates of centeroid
