roads. it may have commenced around 2000 to 4000 BC in Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia. and buildings). (Bridges. construction and maintenance of the naturally and physically built environment. tunnels.How does Civil Engineering use Trigonometry? Civil Engineering is a professional occupation involving the design. dams. . Civil Engineering has been around since the beginnings of human existence.

X-ray Crystallography is a scientific method used to determine the arrangement of atoms of a crystalline solid in three dimensional space. . This technique takes advantage of the interatomic spacing of most crystalline solids by employing them as a diffraction gradient for x-ray light. which has wavelengths on the order of 1 angstrom (10-8 cm).

. Specialized computer software can stream-line the design process but there is no escaping the need to thoroughly understand the math concepts. basic circuit elements are modeled geometrically using x and y coordinates.Transcript of Trigonometry in Electrical Engineering Trigonometry in Electrical Engineering Electrical Engineering covers a wide variety of research. For instance. It is very common for trigonometry to be involved. Resistive and reactive values are plotted as right triangles. Initial designs and concepts are almost always done with computer modeling (or on paper) using a mathematical representation of the problem. design and product development activities. All standard trigonometric functions (and their inverses) are very useful in designing and analyzing circuits.

chemistry.Trigonometric Applications to the Physical Sciences What are the physical sciences? The study of inanimate objects and ideas Includes physics. and astronomy Origins of Trigonometry Trigonometry was invented thousands of years ago to be used to make calculations in astronomy. particularly those in triangles. It deals with the relationships between the sides and the angles of the triangles. Spherical trigonometry studies the triangles on the surface of spheres . Trigonometry functions to find measures.

Trigonometry in Medical Imaging MRI How does it work? Magnetic field aligns protons inside of hydrogen atoms Bursts of radio waves are sent from the scanner into body Knock protons from their position STOP -> protons realign back into place (emit signals) Signals are detected by a receiving device in the scanner Receiving device transmits the signals to a computer Creates a picture based on radio signals .

Trigonometry is used solve several problems in analytic number theory. mathematical statistics. . which are often encountered in physics. and analysis. They investigate trigonometric integrals. and in addition they present purely arithmetic results concerning the solvability of equations in integers.

Tracking a sea creature. There are 6 wave crests at that moment between Nemo and the butt.Oceanographers use trigonometric ratios to calculate distances Ex. in terms of feet is : y=2sin(πx). and the angle of depression from Nemo to his friend is 42°. His friend is directly under the butt and wants to swim back and stop him. must calculate how far away it is Fun Problems Yay 1) Nemo decides he's going to swim to the "butt". The equation of these waves. a) How far is Nemo from his friend? . .

Seismology: a branch of science concerned with earthquakes and related phenomena Trig in Seismology Used to detect the epicenters of a earthquake 3 seismographs cord a reading for how long it took the p then s waves to get there and how strong they are . Trigonometry and Seismology Trigonometry: the branch of mathematics dealing with the relations of the sides and angles of triangles and with the relevant functions of any angles.

The resulting perception is also known as eyesight. or vision . sight.Visual perception is the ability to interpret the surrounding environment by processing information that is contained in visible light.
