Transcript of Trigonometry used in the Real World

Trigonometry is used in the medicinal field. Trigonometry is used in aviation. Trigonometry in the real world. Flight engineers need to calculate how they will get to one place to another. The usage of vectors to create triangles helps with this problem. Trig will help to solve for that thrid side of your triangle to solve where the planes will actually travel with the force of wind added on to its course. Trigonometry is used in architecture. Trigonometry is important in architecture because it allows the architect to calculate distances and forces related to diagonal elements. They use sin, cos, and tan because they allow the architect to easily find the opposite and adjacent values related to an angle. For example trig is used in the calculation of roof pitch, inclination or slope of the roof. The sin and cos functions have an application in medical techniques such as CAT scans and MRI's. Trigonometry is used in digiital imaging Digital imaging is another application of trigonometry. Computer generation of complex imagery uses geometrical patterns that locate the color of each of the infinite points on the image created. The image is generated by a technique called triangulation. The edges of a triangle create the frame of the object to be created, making it realistic. Sin graph of brain waves
