Polynomial Functions in Real Life
Transcript of Polynomial Functions in Real Life
Roller Coaster Design
Architects use polynomial functions to help them design roller coasters. Polynomial function equations are used to calculate the characteristics of a roller coaster such as maximum/minimum points, angle of descent, and the thrill of the path of the track.
How are polynomial functions used in different careers?
Aerospace engineers, chemical engineers, civil engineers, electrical engineers, environmental engineers, mechanical engineers and industrial engineers all need strong math skills. Their jobs require them to make calculations using polynomial expressions and operations. For example, aerospace engineers may use polynomials to determine acceleration of a rocket or jet, and mechanical engineers use polynomials to research and design engines and machines, according to WeUseMath.org.
Physical and social scientists, including archaeologists, astronomers, meteorologists, chemists and physicists, need to use polynomials in their jobs. Key scientific formulas, including gravity equations, feature polynomial expressions. These algebraic equations help scientists to measure relationships between characteristics such as force, mass and acceleration. Astronomers use polynomials to help in finding new stars and planets and calculating their distance from Earth, their temperature and other features, according to school-for-champions.com.
