#### Transcript of Trigonometry in Aerospace engineering

My Process
Upon my research and investigation I have found that in the early stages of aerospace engineering, the main two disciplines used for safe ship designs were calculus and trigonometry.

This makes trig essential for the future innovation of aerospace exploration.
Aerospace Engineering
Engineering divided into two major branches: aeronautical engineering and astronautical engineering.
Aeronautics deals with aircraft that operate in Earth's atmosphere, and astronautics deals with spacecraft that operate outside the Earth's atmosphere.
Aerospace engineering deals with the design, construction, and study of the science behind the forces and physical properties of aircraft, rockets, flying craft, and spacecraft.
Trig is vital for Aerospace!
Without trigonometry, it would be nearly impossible to land or navigate spaceships throughout earth and space.
Trig is used to calculate wind and gravitational forces implying friction upon aircrafts. With the proper calculations, usually involving wind correction angle formula, the skys may be piloted safely.
What is Trigonometry?
a branch of mathematics that studies relationships involving lengths and angles of triangles.

The field emerged during the 3rd century BC from applications of geometry to astronomical studies.
