Periodic Functions & Applications II

Definition of a radian and its relationship with degrees

Definition of a periodic function, the period and amplitude

Definitions of the trigonometric functions sin, cos and tan of any angle in degrees and radians

Graphs of y = sin x, y = cos x and y = tan x

Significance of the constants A, B, C and D on the graphs of y = A sin(Bx + C) + D, y = A cos(Bx + C) + D

Applications of periodic functions

Solutions of simple trigonometric equations within a specified domain

Pythagorean identity sin2x + cos2x = 1

- Definition of a radian and its relationship to degrees

Radians

In the equilateral triangle, each angle is 60o

r

If this chord were pushed onto the circumference,

r

this radius would be pulled back onto the other marked radius

2. Definition of a periodic function, period and amplitude

- Consider the function shown here.
- A function which repeats values in this way is called a Periodic Function
- The minimum time taken for it to repeat is called the Period (T). This graph has a period of 4
- The average distance between peaks and troughs is called Amplitude (A). This graph has an amplitude of 3

4. Graphs of y = sin x, y = cos x and y = tan x

The general shapes of the three major trigonometric graphs

y = sin x

y = cos x

y = tan x

5. Significance of the constants A,B and D on the graphs of…

y = A sinB(x + C) + D

y = A cosB(x + C) + D

- Open the file y = sin(x)

y = A cos B(x + C) + D

A:adjusts the amplitude

B: determines the period (T). This is the distance taken to complete one cycle where T = 2/B. It therefore, also determines the number of cycles between 0 and 2.

C: moves the curve left and right by a distance of –C (only when B is outside the brackets)

D: shifts the curve up and down the y-axis

Graph the following curves for 0 ≤ x ≤ 2

- y = 3sin(2x)
- y = 2cos(½x) + 1

Assume that the time between successive high tides is 4 hours

High tide is 4.5 m

Low tide is 0.5m

It was high tide at 12 midnight

Find the height of the tide at 4am

Assume that the time between successive high tides is 4 hours

High tide is 4.5 m

Low tide is 0.5m

It was high tide at 12 midnight

Find the height of the tide at 4am

y = a sin b(x+c) + d

Tide range = 4m a = 2

Assume that the time between successive high tides is 4 hours

High tide is 4.5 m

Low tide is 0.5m

It was high tide at 12 midnight

Find the height of the tide at 4am

High tide = 4.5 d = 2.5

Period = 4

Period = 2/b

b = 0.5

y = 2 sin 0.5(x+c) + 2.5

Assume that the time between successive high tides is 4 hours

High tide is 4.5 m

Low tide is 0.5m

It was high tide at 12 midnight

Find the height of the tide at 4am

At the moment, high tide is at hours

We need a phase shift of units to the left

c =

y = 2 sin 0.5(x+) + 2.5

Assume that the time between successive high tides is 4 hours

High tide is 4.5 m

Low tide is 0.5m

It was high tide at 12 midnight

Find the height of the tide at 4am

We want the height of the tide when t = 4
