Calculus

# What are some real life applications of calculus?

###### Wiki User

Pretty much any serious statistical model or experiment on anything will use basic calculus to interpret data.

Anything that exponentially grows or decays (radioactive matter, bacteria, population growth, etc.)

Anything that's built to be structurally sound.

Anything that uses the EM spectra (radio, microwaves, visible light, etc.)

All scientific industries use calculus practically constantly.

And on and on and on...

In reality, it's rarely pure theoretical calculus that's being done. Rather, another branch of math based on and built from the principles and results of calculus is primarily used called differential equations.

Don't forget integration, the other "half" of calculus. That is as equally important in your listed applications.

Also, both theoretical and applied calculus use both differentiation and integration. Differentiation isn't a separate branch of maths, but one of the two major branches of calculus as a whole.

That depends on what your "real life" consists of. If you sell merchandise at a supermarket, or do carpentry work, you won't need such advanced mathematics. If you work in the engineering fields, you might need it at some moment like with electromagnetic fields, gravitational fields and fluid flow. If you are an engineer you will come across vector calculus to handle three dimensional space.

Any bachelor's in business will require at least a pre-calculus, with some institutions requiring a brief calculus with applications. In addition, there will also be business statistical analysis.

Your real life may or may not ever involve congruent triangles. The reason why they are studied is because in mathematics, everything interconnects. Geometry is a tool that is used to help understand many other types of mathematical problems; combined with algebra you get analytical geometry, which is necessary to be able to do calculus, and calculus is essential for virtually any scientific or technical activity. But some people never use it. There are large numbers of people who never have any need for any form of mathematics more advanced than simple arithmetic.

Some people find some calculus difficult, some don't.

There are lots of practical applications of calculus; you can some in the Wikipedia article on "Calculus". Here are some interesting applications: find the maximum or minimum of a function; find the area of arbitrary 2-D shapes or the volume of arbitrary 3-D shapes; analyze the shape of curves represented by mathematical relations; calculate physical quantities such as energy, moment of inertia, center of mass and others (this is related to calculating the area of arbitrary shapes), and others.

Calculus in some contexts means stone (such as a urinary calculus or salivary calculus), or can mean mineral deposits on teeth.A calculus, in medicine, is a stone that grows in some organs - such as a kidney.

Most of the time, you don't use calculus or other types of advanced math in your daily life, unless "daily life" specifically involves working in some engineering branch, teaching advanced math, or something similar.

Look at every building around you. they were all developed with the use of calculus. The pipes that carry the water that comes out of the tap; the wires that carry the electricity flowing into your computer right now; the computer itself. All involved calculus of some kind at some point in their design, development, creations, testing and implementation as usuable technologes. The television, the cellular phone, the engine in your car. All of these and many many hundreds of other devices and objects in everyday life were developed and thought through, and are controlled by, calculus in some form (whether it is a complex algorithm program in the ECU or a simple recursive heuristic on a simple circuit board).

We all use basic arithmetic (+ - / *) in everyday life, and reading powers and scientific notation is useful for things like programming and reading some national geographic magazines and what not. The Pythagorean theorem is useful for some things. But I donโt understand how quadratic equations, calculus, radical expressions, sequences/series, and imaginary and complex numbers are used in everyday life. What are some REAL, USEFUL applications of these things?

some real life examples are a water bottle, pipes, cans
