## How can you use trigonometry to solve real world problems?

Trigonometry can be used to roof a house, to make the roof inclined ( in the case of single individual bungalows) and the height of the roof in buildings etc. It is used naval and aviation industries. It is used in cartography (creation of maps).

## Where can trigonometric functions be used in real life?

Applications of Trigonometry

- Measuring grounds lots, and fields,
- Measuring ground surfaces,
- Making building perpendicular and parallel,
- Roof inclination and roof slopes,
- Installing ceramic tiles and stones,
- The height and width of the building.
- light angles and sun shading.

**Where is Sohcahtoa used in real life?**

SOHCAHTOA helps us remember which trigonometric function to use to calculate ratios from a right triangle and find either a side length or angle measure. This can be useful in real-world applications, such as finding the depth of the ocean or the height of a skyscraper.

### What is a real life example of using trigonometric graphs?

navigation. used in physics, engineering, physics, chemistry and mathematics. electrical currents, radio broadcasting, low and high tides of the ocean, highways and building.

### When can we use the six trigonometric ratios in real life situations?

Real Life Scenario of Trigonometry

- 1.1 In Measuring the Height and Building or Mountain.
- 1.2 In Aviation or Flight Engineering.
- 1.3 In Investigation of Crime Scene or Criminology.
- 1.4 In Marine Biology.
- 1.5 In Navigation.
- 1.6 In Video Games.
- 1.7 In Sound Waves or Light Waves.
- 1.8 In Roof Inclination.

**Where are sin cos and tan used in real life?**

You can even use trig to figure out the angles the sun will shine into a building or room. Construction workers also use sine, cosine, and tangent in this way. They need to measure the sizes of lots, roof angles, heights of walls and widths of flooring, and even more.

## How do astronauts use trig?

Thanks to trigonometry we know the distances between the planets from the Earth. When an astronaut needs to calculate the speed they are moving in the spacecraft, if they already know the distance from a particular location they can use trigonometry to calculate the unknown distance to another location point.

## How is trigonometry used in satellites?

-This is used to calculate the distance to each satellite from the receiver. The Law of Cosines is used to calculate the distance from receiver to each satellite. To find out its exact location, the receiver calculates the point where all of the satellites’ radii (the distance from the satellite to the receiver) meet.

**How trigonometry is used in criminology?**

In criminology, trigonometry can help to calculate a projectile’s trajectory, to estimate what might have caused a collision in a car accident or how did an object fall down from somewhere, or in which angle was a bullet shot, etc.

### How is trigonometry used in cartography?

For topographical mapping, cartographers use the laws of plane trigonometry which tells us that the length of just one side and 2 angles of a triangle is all we need to know in order to determine the length of the remaining 2 sides and final angle.

### Why is trigonometry so hard for me?

Trigonometry is hard because you have to memorize various values of different functions in both degrees and radians. If you don’t remember them, or if you mix them up, then your calculations will be incorrect.

**How do engineers use trig?**

Engineers routinely use trigonometric concepts to calculate angles. Civil and mechanical engineers use trigonometry to calculate torque and forces on objects, such as bridges or building girders. An example is the calculation of the static forces on an object that is not movingâ€”such as a bridge.
