The Trigonometry of Aviation
Trigonometry is crucial in aviation. It is used to calculate climb angle, flight path, distance traveled and descent angle that is required to land a plane. (“Trigonometric Functions - Real Life Applications”) All of these calculations can find you things such as direction, slope, the path of an airplane, and the landing and take off speed an airplane is going. For this specific investigation I will be focusing specifically on solving the landing and take off speed and path of an airplane traveling vertically and horizontally at the same time, I will further investigate how fast it is traveling in each direction for both take off and landing of the same type of airplane. In order to show well investigated maths I will investigate all the aspects mentioned above and possibly more in order to solve my dilemma, How does Trigonometry play a role in aviation? The type of maths that I will be investigating can best be described as a vector/trigonometry investigation.

Black American Women Calculated the Moon Landing, says John Glenn and a Bestselling Book
In the 1960s, astronauts Alan Shepard, Gus Grissom, John Glenn and others were celebrated for their achievements as America's first men in space. They successfully reached orbit as part of project Mercury, the nation's inaugural crewed space program. However, it is important to recognize the vital role played by numerous unsung heroes at NASA, including "human computers" who calculated their orbital trajectories. Let's pay tribute to these brilliant women whose invaluable contributions made space travel safe and successful.
The exponential growth of compound interest
Ai was used to support the research in this article. Real life examples of exponential growth that have to do with finance and compound interest:. Functions, and to be more specific to this article, exponential growth and the functions that have to do with it are extremely prevalent in finance. They are used in real life finance examples such as savings accounts, bonds, stocks, mutual funds, retirement accounts, real estate, etc. In this article, I will investigate the relationship between exponential growth and the compound interest of savings accounts. I will be finding the exponential relationship between (Y variable dollars/amount) and (X variable = time/year)
