What are two ways math is most commonly used in the welding shop?

Expert Solution
To determine

To Explain: Two ways of math which is used in welding shop.

Explanation of Solution

Mathematics is important in all the areas for calculating the parameters of the operations. In a welding shop, the operator needs to calculate the angles and position of the torch through mathematics.

There are two main ways in which math is most commonly used in welding shop. They are:

  1. Arithmetic operators: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
  2. Geometrical and trigonometry: Dimensions of the weldments, angle of electrode, point of contact and gap between electrode and work piece.
