Engineers use math for just about everything. Calculus is the math that is used 9 time out of 10. Engineers use derivatives and integrals to calculate anything. Integrals in the real world can be used to determine the correct amount of material needed to complete a project. Derivatives can find multiple things also one of with is the instantaneous velocity of an object at a specific point, this is how police radar guns work. calculus can also be used to predict economic situation and also for engineering purposes it is used to find relative maximum and minimum points on a graph. which this structural integrity and efficiency. that is the easiest and simplest way that i can explain calculus applications and when they are used.
