 Trigonometry is derived from Greek
words trigonon (three angles) and metron
( measure).
 Trigonometry is the branch of
mathematics which deals with triangles,
particularly triangles in a plane where one
angle of the triangle is 90 degrees
 Triangles on a sphere are also studied, in
spherical trigonometry.
 Trigonometry specifically deals with the
relationships between the sides and the
angles of triangles, that is, on the
trigonometric functions, and with
calculations based on these functions.
Trigonometry

History
• The origins of trigonometry can be traced to the
civilizations of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia and the
Indus Valley, more than 4000 years ago.
• Some experts believe that trigonometry was
originally invented to calculate sundials, a traditional
exercise in the oldest books
• The first recorded use of trigonometry came from
the Hellenistic mathematician Hipparchus circa 150
BC, who compiled a trigonometric table using the sine
for solving triangles.
• The Sulba Sutras written in India, between 800 BC
and 500 BC, correctly compute the sine of π/4 (45°)
as 1/√2 in a procedure for circling the square (the
opposite of squaring the circle).
• Many ancient mathematicians like Aryabhata,
Brahmagupta,Ibn Yunus and Al-Kashi made
significant contributions in this field(trigonometry).

Right Triangle
 A triangle in which one
angle is equal to 90° is
called right triangle.
 The side opposite to
the right angle is known
as hypotenuse.
AB is the hypotenuse
 The other two sides are
known as legs.
AC and BC are the legs
Trigonometry deals with Right Triangles
5
Pythagoras Theorem
In any right triangle, the area of the
square whose side is the hypotenuse is
equal to the sum of areas of the squares
whose sides are the two legs.
In the figure
AB2
= BC2
+ AC2

Trigonometric ratios
Sine(sin) opposite
side/hypotenuse
Cosine(cos) adjacent

Tangent(tan) opposite

functions of different angles.
 First Enter whether you want to enter the angle
in radians or in degrees. Radian gives a bit more
accurate value than Degree.
 Then Enter the required trigonometric function
in the format given below:
 Enter 1 for sin.
 Enter 2 for cosine.
 Enter 3 for tangent.
 Enter 4 for cosecant.
 Enter 5 for secant.

Applications of
Trigonometry• This field of mathematics can be applied in
astronomy,navigation, music theory, acoustics, optics,
analysis of financial markets, electronics, probability theory,
statistics, biology, medical imaging (CAT scans and
ultrasound), pharmacy, chemistry, number theory (and hence
cryptology), seismology, meteorology, oceanography, many
physical sciences, land surveying and geodesy, architecture,
phonetics, economics, electrical engineering, mechanical
engineering, civil engineering, computer graphics,
cartography, crystallography and game development.
15
Derivations
• Most Derivations heavily rely on
Trigonometry.
Click the hyperlinks to view the derivation
• A few such derivations are given below:-
• Parallelogram law of addition of vectors.
• Centripetal Acceleration.
• Lens Formula
• Variation of Acceleration due to gravity due
to rotation of earth.
• Finding angle between resultant and the
vector.
16
Applications of
Trigonometry in
Astronomy• Since ancient times trigonometry was used in astronomy.
• The technique of triangulation is used to measure the distance to
nearby stars.
• In 240 B.C., a mathematician named Eratosthenes discovered the
radius of the Earth using trigonometry and geometry.
• In 2001, a group of European astronomers did an experiment that
started in 1997 about the distance of Venus from the Sun. Venus was
about 105,000,000 kilometers away from the Sun .
17
Application of
Trigonometry in
Architecture• Many modern buildings have beautifully curved
surfaces.
• Making these curves out of steel, stone, concrete or
glass is extremely difficult, if not impossible.
• One way around to address this problem is to piece the
surface together out of many flat panels, each sitting at
an angle to the one next to it, so that all together they
create what looks like a curved surface.
• The more regular these shapes, the easier the building
process.
• Regular flat shapes like squares, pentagons and
hexagons, can be made out of triangles, and so
trigonometry plays an important role in architecture.
18
Waves
• The graphs of the functions sin(x) and cos(x) look like waves. Sound
travels in waves, although these are not necessarily as regular as those
of the sine and cosine functions.
• However, a few hundred years ago, mathematicians realized that any
wave at all is made up of sine and cosine waves. This fact lies at the
heart of computer music.
• Since a computer cannot listen to music as we do, the only way to get
music into a computer is to represent it mathematically by its
constituent sound waves.
• This is why sound engineers, those who research and develop the
newest advances in computer music technology, and sometimes even
composers have to understand the basic laws of trigonometry.
• Waves move across the oceans, earthquakes produce shock waves and
light can be thought of as traveling in waves. This is why trigonometry
is also used in oceanography, seismology, optics and many other fields
like meteorology and the physical sciences.
19
Digital Imaging
• In theory, the computer needs an infinite amount of information to do
this: it needs to know the precise location and colour of each of the
infinitely many points on the image to be produced. In practice, this is
of course impossible, a computer can only store a finite amount of
information.
• To make the image as detailed and accurate as possible, computer
graphic designers resort to a technique called triangulation.
• As in the architecture example given, they approximate the image by a
large number of triangles, so the computer only needs to store a finite
amount of data.
• The edges of these triangles form what looks like a wire frame of the
object in the image. Using this wire frame, it is also possible to make
the object move realistically.
• Digital imaging is also used extensively in medicine, for example in
CAT and MRI scans. Again, triangulation is used to build accurate
images from a finite amount of information.
• It is also used to build "maps" of things like tumors, which help decide
how x-rays should be fired at it in order to destroy it.
