# Applications of Analytical Geometry in the Field of

Engineering

## Mathematical applications of analytical geometry lie mainly in relating algebra

and geometry. Analytical geometry uses algebra to study geometric properties; operates
on symbols defined in a coordinate system. The Cartesian plane, the basis of analytical
geometry, allows algebraic equations to be graphically represented.
This mathematics discipline describes the position of points on a plane using an
ordered pair of numbers. Engineers and Architects use coordinate geometry to
represent points, lines, shapes and surfaces as algebraic expressions with letters and
numbers. This allows them to perform the calculations required to design a complex
structure, such as a bridge or building. Such calculations include stress, moment of
inertia, and tensile strength. For example, a structural engineer may measure the
dimensions of a beam in order to calculate the maximum load, or stress, the beam can
support. This is essential information when planning the infrastructure of a building. It is
well known that drawing is the language of mechanical engineering, for complete
knowledge in drawing analytical geometry is very useful. This is also useful in
measuring the forces and stresses in the machine parts. This analytical geometry is
wide useful in design topics like "kinematics of machinery", dynamics of machinery
and many more.
Analytical geometry is used widely in engineering. It set the foundation for
algebraic, differential, discrete, and computational geometry. It is the study of geometry
using a coordinate system.
