Physics problems often require some application of trigonometry. Test how thorough your trigonometry background is with practice questions about Pythagorean Theorem and which trigonometric functions to use to find missing pieces of a triangle.

This quiz aims to assess your understanding of:

- How to find the angles of a right triangle given all side lengths
- The relationship between cosecant and sine functions
- Pythagorean Theorem
- When to apply trigonometric functions to find side lengths in a right triangle

**Problem solving**- set up a trigonometric problem using a pictured triangle**Distinguishing differences**- know the specific applications of each trigonometric function in order to select the correct one to use**Information recall**- show that you remember the formula for Pythagorean Theorem and the mathematical relationship between two trigonometric functions

Use the accompanying lesson called Math Review for Physics: Trigonometry to review these topics:

- Why you'll need to use trigonometry in physics problems
- How the six main trigonometric functions relate the sides of a triangle
- Which trigonometric functions can be used to find angles rather than side lengths
