Before the existence of pocket calculators, trigonometric tables were essential for navigation, science and calculation of mathematical tables was an important area of study, which led to the development of the first mechanical computing devices.

Modern computers and pocket calculators now.

Early digital computers were developed during World War II in part to produce specialized mathematical tables for aiming artillery. From onwards, with the launch and growing use of scientific calculators, most mathematical tables went out. If a number, x, is expressed as a power of another number, y, that is, if x = y n, then n is said to be the logarithm of x to base logarithms are to the base 10; natural or Napierian logarithms are to the base e, a mathematical constant.

Trigonometry in the modern sense began with the Greeks. Hipparchus (c. – bce) was the first to construct a table of values for a trigonometric considered every triangle—planar or spherical—as being inscribed in a circle, so that each side becomes a chord (that is, a straight line that connects two points on a curve or surface, as shown by the inscribed triangle ABC in.

Short answer: The main reason is the simplification of reducing multiplication and division to addition and subtraction. Historical aspects: One application which is heavily based upon trigonometric formulas is Spherical realm e.g. important for astronomy and geodesy used logarithmic tables of trigonometric functions right from the beginning since logarithms have been published.

Logarithm tables Napier died in Briggs published a table of logarithms to 14 places of numbers from 1 to 20, and f toin Adriaan Vlacq published a place table for values from 1 toinadding values. Both Briggs and Vlacq engaged in setting up log trigonometric tables. The logarithm of a number N to the base a is the exponent m to which a (base of the logarithm) must be raised in order to obtain N (denoted by log a N).Thus m = log a N if a m = example, log 10 = 2, log 2 (1/32) = –5, and log a 1 = 0 since = 10 2, 1/32 = 2 –5, and1 = a negative a infinitely many positive numbers would not have real logarithms, and therefore it is.

The slide rule, also known colloquially in the United States as a slipstick, is a mechanical analog computer. As graphical analog calculators, slide rules are closely related to nomograms, but the former are used for general calculations, whereas the latter are used for application-specific computations.

The slide rule is used primarily for multiplication and division, and also for functions. Logarithmic and trigonometric tables: Rev.

Trigonometric function, In mathematics, one of six functions (sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, secant, and cosecant) that represent ratios of sides of right are also known as the circular functions, since their values can be defined as ratios of the x and y coordinates (see coordinate system) of points on a circle of radius 1 that correspond to angles in standard positions.

He appreciated that, for the most part, practitioners who had laborious computations generally did them in the context of trigonometry.

Therefore, as well as developing the logarithmic relation, Napier set it in a trigonometric context so it would be even more relevant.
