Trigonometry in Chemistry
Transcript of Trigonometry in Chemistry
By: Kayla Rosen & Kennedy Hawkins
A Bachelor's degree in Chemistry is required to be a Chemist.
What is Chemistry?
Chemistry is the study of matter, its properties, and the study of how and why substances combine or separate to form other substances, and how substances interact with energy.
We used internet research and our chemistry teacher to learn how trigonometry is used in chemistry.
What do Chemists do?
A chemist researches and experiments with the properties of chemical substances. They measure the effects of chemical compounds in various situations and study inter-chemical reactions. Chemists study molecular geometry, in which, trigonometry is applied. The average salary of a chemist is $56,000 after earning an acquired Bachelor's degree in chemistry.
How is Trigonometry
Used in Chemistry
In chemistry, chemists use trigonometry when accurately describing the angles that are created when atoms bond together to form molecules in molecular geometry. Trigonometric functions, such as sine, cosine, and tangent, are essential to describe materials in their three dimensions.
With a Bachelor's degree, the average salary of chemist is $56,000.
Molecules want to be as far away as possible from each other when they bond
When molecules spread apart from one another they create angles
To find the measure of each angle, draw lines connecting each molecule to form a triangle
After creating a triangle you can use trigonometry to accurately determine the measure of the angles
