## Polynomial use in the field of industry

For people who work in industries that deal with physical phenomena or modeling situations for the future, polynomials come in handy every day. These include everyone from engineers to businessmen. For the rest of us, they are less apparent but we still probably use them to predict how changing one factor in our lives may affect another--without even realizing it.

Polynomials have relevance to nearly all the sciences. Astrophysicists use them to calculate a star's velocity and distance from another object in space. Likewise, they are important in determining pressure in applications of fluid dynamics. Chemists use polynomials to determine the composition of certain compounds and molecules, and they are central to statistics. Statistical formulas use polynomials to ascertain future values of animal birth and death rates, monetary flow and population growth.
