Transcript of How trigonometry is Used in Architecture

Trigonometry used to solve architectural problems
Trigonometry is used in architecture to ensure that buildings are built safely.
for example, architects have to calculate exact angles of intersection for components of their structure to ensure stability and safety.
examples of trigonometric use in architecture include arches, domes, support beams, and suspension bridges.
A little bit about Architecture
Architects design buildings and other structures. In addition to considering the way these buildings are structures look, they also make sure they are functional and safe.
Architects not only draw the plans for the building but they have to make sure the building follows safety codes and they also have to plan the budget for the building.
How trigonometry is used in architecture
Trigonometry can be used to find the length of a wall
you could solve this by using Tangent.
This is another example of how architects use trig
To see how far up something is. The trig ratio you could use would be Sine.
