So in high school my teacher would like to always talk about how useful quadratic equations are in a diverse set of circumstances when using math to measure and calculate real life phenomena, but he never really mentioned any real world applications outside of a few abstract word problems.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So I'd like to ask the engineers and mathematicians here, what are some real world situations where quadratic equations would be used to solve a particular problem?
