What is a specific example of geometry in electrical engineering?
I need a math problem that shows how geometry is used in the job, explaining the specific situation using numbers. I know geometry is used in process control equations to control the valves, but what is a specific example of this? (It can be trigonometry, similarity, geometric means, segments and angles in circles, special right triangles, vectors, Law of Sines/Cosines, Pythagorean theorem, area, perimeter, volume, transformations, etc.) Thank you!

If you have a sine wave applied to an RC series, then the 2 voltages (across the R and C) will be like a cosine and sine respectively, so they combine according to the Pythagorean theorem.
