And now we can achieve triangle \(\Delta DEF\) from \(\Delta ABC\) by making a transformation about centroid, i.e. squeezing the length \(AG\) to half and rotating \(180^0\) gives \(DG\). Similarly we do this for \(BG\) and \(CG\) to get \(EG\) and \(FG\). So, what happens the.... length of the line segment joining orthocenter and a vertex of triangle \(\Delta ABC\) is twice the line joining orthocenter and a vertex of triangle \(\Delta DEF\). But first corresponds to \(AH\) and second corresponds to \(OD\). Therefore, \(AH=2OD\). – Surya Prakash · 1 year, 5 months ago
