Please help with Radical expressions project (1 Viewer)

Users Who Are Viewing This Thread (Users: 0, Guests: 1)

I have a project in which I need to write a paper on how radical expressions are used in careers. I can think of plenty of careers that use radical expressions, the problem is, no matter how much I research I can't find anything on <i>how</i> they are used. I have tried to find mathematics of modern combat and/or paintballing, but I have found nothing on radical expressions in these.

What's a radical expression? Like square roots and cube roots and such? So you are looking for equations that involve radicals that are used a lot in every-day life?

Like, VRMS = 2 * SQRT(2) * Vpp ?

(the RMS voltage is 2 * SQRT(2) * the peak-to-peak voltage)

That gets used a lot in engineering applications. Engineering is real-life, isn't it?
