    I, however, wouldn't know. I am HORRIBLE at math. If it wasn't for my fingers and calculators, I would barely even be able to add!

    Ahhh! Enjoyable! Useful too. Did you know that the sloped armour on tanks and ships makes use of the properties of the cosine to give better protection?

    Yep! Take a book, hold it vertically - narrow edge on, slap a rule horizontally against it and note the thickness. Now tilt the top of the book back (without moving the rule at all) and watch the apparent thickness of the book increase. That is an example of what is called "the cosine rule" by armouring designers and balistics buffs. At 30 degrees back from vertical, the thickness through the horizontal plane (the path that a high-velocity projectile would most likely be following) will have doubled!

    Calculating 'distances-off by vertical angle' (old-school navigation) is another neat trick; if you know the height of the object you are using for a reference and the angle from your position to the top of it, then you can easily calculate how far you are away from it!

    Wiki has some neat 'how-to' guides; but feel free to pick my brains via PM if you need to!


    Edit: Slide Rules! What additional fun! Nowadays though, Grand Master, I use a scientific calculator (there's even one built into Windows) or the formulas in Excel!
