In this chapter, we will explore applications of trigonometry that will enable us to solve many different kinds of problems, including finding the height of a tree. We extend topics we introduced in Trigonometric Functions and investigate applications more deeply and meaningfully.

Thumbnail: A polar equation describes a curve on the polar grid. The graph of a polar equation can be evaluated for three types of symmetry. Ths image shows one type with a graph is symmetric with respect to the vertical line.
