Infinite Sequences and Series: Applications of Taylor Polynomials
In this video I go over further into infinite sequences and series, and this time look at the many applications of Taylor polynomials. When I was still a student in university, it was this particular concept of Taylor polynomials and their applications to all aspects of physics that got me interested in creating my Math Easy Solutions channel. And in this video I explore Taylor polynomials in approximating functions which can then be extended to most functions in physics.
The accuracy of our approximations can be determined using the Alternating Series Estimation theorem, Taylor's Inequality, and through graphical or even brute force calculation methods. The particular science and physics applications that I cover in this video include optics, electromagnetism, water waves, pendulums, and surveying.
