Trigonometry is used to define triangles, but it is also useful in the representation of waves. Sound engineers, obviously, use deal with sound waves. The pitch, volume, and direction of a sound wave are all deeply rooted in trigonometry.

What do engineers use trigonometry for?

Engineers use trigonometry anywhere that involves non-right angles. That includes building cars and buildings, bridges, and many other structures. they also use trigonometry when dealing with fields, like magnetic and electric fields. Also, trigonometry is very important with engineers who deal with waves, such as sound or light engineers.

How are sound engineers and trigonometrical functions parallel?

I assume the question means "Do sound engineers make use of trigonometric functions?" There are at least two ways that sound engineers might make use of trig functions. The first way is directly. Speakers have limited angles of coverage. Also distances from speakers to various parts of the audience have to be known, as sound takes time to travel, and gets softer with greater distance. Since speakers are often up on tall towers, this is a 3D problem, and trigonometry may come into it. More fundamentally, but more indirectly, sound can be considered as a sum of sine waves, each with its own frequency, amplitude and phase. The various pieces of equipment used by sound engineers affect the amplitudes and phases of the various components of the sound. Phase can be particularly troublesome: because of the limited angle of coverage of an individual speaker, multiple speakers have to be used, and in the places where their coverages overlap, differences in phase can cause bad effects. Sound engineers have to understand all this. Disclaimer: I'm not a sound engineer.

How can you use trigonometry in the field as a criminology?

Trigonometry is used in many situations and jobs in life, including architects, surveyors, astronauts, physicists, engineers and even crime scene investigators. The latter use trigonometry for example to calculate a projectile's trajectory, to estimate what might have caused a collision in a car accident or how did an object fall down from somewhere (for example from a rooftop).

Does acoustics use trigonometry?

Yes, because all sound waves can be modelled as sine (or cosine) waves, or combinations of sine waves.
