How Electricians Use Math
Transcript of How Electricians Use Math
By: Christine Valadez
What is an electrician?
A person who installs and maintains electrical equipment.
The education necessary is to go to high school and college. You have to graduate high school and get a college degree. The math electricians use is trigonometry, calculus, and algebra. The trigonometry is used for bending pipe in a certain angle. Calculus is used for electrical calculation to know how many amps and bulbs they need. Finally, algebra is used to do trigonometry and calculus. Algebra is the building block of electrical engineering.
Colleges and Scholarships
A college for electricians is Palomar College. One of the scholarship programs is the William D. Direct Loan Program. Also they also accept a 4-year transfer scholarship. They also give a student loan of $500, but the students have to pay later.
When you starting as an electrician, you get paid $20 an hour for 40 hours a week. That's $800 a week. The more time you spend as an electrician the more you get paid.
Three companies in the Imperial Valley that are hiring electricians are DNR Electric, Five Star Electric, and Supreme Electric.
Jobs for electricians are looking great because they are building more solar panels and wind fans than they used to. Also, the companies that I said earlier are offering jobs to professionals.
Four personality traits that are important are responsibility, punctuality, the ability to stay safe, and having knowledge in math.
P=I x E
V=I x R
V & E= Voltage
The branch of mathematics dealing with the relationships of the sides and angles of triangles and with relevant function of any angles.
The branch of mathematics that deals with the findings and properties of derivatives and of integral of functions, by methods originally based on the summation of infinitesimal differences.
The part of mathematics in which letters and other general symbols are used to represent numbers and quantities in formulas and equations.
