1 5- Trigonometric Functions Section 5- Trigonometric Functions Definition of the Trigonometric Functions Clcultor Evlution of Trigonometric Functions Definition of the Trigonometric Functions Alternte Form Exct Vlues for Specil Angles nd Rel Numers Summry of Specil Angle Vlues The six circulr functions introduced in Section 5- were defined without ny reference to the concept of ngle. Historiclly, however, ngles nd tringles formed the core suject mtter of trigonometry. In this section we introduce the six trigonometric functions, whose domin vlues re the mesures of ngles. The six trigonometric functions re intimtely relted to the six circulr functions. Definition of the Trigonometric Functions We re now redy to define trigonometric functions with ngle domins. Since we hve lredy defined the circulr functions with rel numer domins, we cn tke dvntge of these results nd define the trigonometric functions with ngle domins in terms of the circulr functions. To ech of the six circulr functions we ssocite trigonometric function of the sme nme. If is n ngle, in either rdin or degree mesure, we ssign vlues to sin, cos, tn, csc, sec, nd cot s given in Definition. DEFINITION TRIGONOMETRIC FUNCTIONS WITH ANGLE DOMAINS If is n ngle with rdin mesure x, then the vlue of ech trigonometric function t is given y its vlue t the rel numer x. Trigonometric Function sin cos tn csc sec cot Circulr Function sin x cos x tn x csc x sec x cot x W(x) (, ) x rd x units rc length (, 0) If is n ngle in degree mesure, convert to rdin mesure nd proceed s ove. [Note: To reduce the numer of different symols in certin figures, the u nd v xes we strted with will often e leled s the nd xes, respectively. Also, n expression such s sin 0 denotes the sine of the ngle whose mesure is 0.]

2 5 TRIGONOMETRIC FUNCTIONS The figure in Definition mkes use of the importnt fct tht in unit circle the rc length s opposite n ngle of x rdins is x units long, nd vice vers: s r x x EXAMPLE Solutions (A) (B) Exct Evlution for Specil Angles Evlute exctly without clcultor.

(A) tn (/ rd) (B) cos (/ rd) (C) sin 90 (D) sec (0 ) Clcultor Evlution of Trigonometric Functions How do we evlute trigonometric functions for ritrry ngles? Just s clcultor cn e used to pproximte circulr functions for ritrry rel numers, clcultor cn e used to pproximte trigonometric functions for ritrry ngles. Most clcultors hve choice of three trigonometric modes: degree (deciml), rdin, or grd. The mesure of right ngle 90 rdins 00 grds The grd unit is used in certin engineering pplictions nd will not e used in this ook. We repet cution stted erlier: CAUTION Red the instruction ook ccompnying your clcultor to determine how to put your clcultor in degree or rdin mode. Forgetting to set the correct mode efore strting clcultions involving trigonometric functions is frequent cuse of error when using clcultor.

3 5- Trigonometric Functions 5 Using clcultor with degree nd rdin modes, we cn evlute trigonometric functions directly for ngles in either degree or rdin mesure without hving to convert degree mesure to rdin mesure first. (Some clcultors work only with deciml degrees nd others work with either deciml degrees or degree minute second forms. Consult your mnul.) We generlize the reciprocl identities (stted first in Theorem, Section 5-) to evlute cosecnt, secnt, nd cotngent. THEOREM RECIPROCAL IDENTITIES For x ny rel numer or ngle in degree or rdin mesure, csc x sin x sin x 0 sec x cos x cot x tn x cos x 0 tn x 0 EXAMPLE Clcultor Evlution Evlute to four significnt digits using clcultor.

This lternte form of Definition is esily found y inserting unit circle in Figure, drwing perpendiculrs from points P nd Q to the horizontl xis (Fig. ), nd utilizing the fct tht rtios of corresponding sides of similr tringles re proportionl. Letting r d(o, P) nd noting tht d(o, Q), we hve sin sin x r cos cos x r nd lwys hve the sme sign. nd lwys hve the sme sign. The vlues of the other four trigonometric functions cn e otined using sic identities. For exmple, tn sin cos /r /r We now hve the very useful lternte form of Definition given elow.

5 5- Trigonometric Functions 7 DEFINITION continued Domins: Sets of ll possile ngles for which the rtios re defined Rnges: Susets of the set of rel numers (Domins nd rnges will e stted more precisely in the next section.) [Note: The right tringle formed y drwing perpendiculr from P(, ) to the horizontl xis is clled the reference tringle ssocited with the ngle. We will often refer to this tringle.] Explore/Discuss Discuss why, for given ngle, the rtios in Definition re independent of the choice of P(, ) on the terminl side of s long s (, ) (0, 0). The lternte form of Definition should e memorized. As memory id, note tht when r, then P(, ) is on the unit circle, nd ll function vlues correspond to the vlues otined using Definition for circulr functions in Section 5-. In fct, using the lternte form of Definition in conjunction with the originl sttement of Definition in this section, we hve n lternte wy of evluting circulr functions: CIRCULAR FUNCTIONS AND TRIGONOMETRIC FUNCTIONS For x ny rel numer, sin x sin (x rdins) cos x cos (x rdins) sec x sec (x rdins) csc x csc (x rdins) () tn x tn (x rdins) cot x cot (x rdins) Thus, we re now free to evlute circulr functions in terms of trigonometric functions, using reference tringles where pproprite, or in terms of circulr points nd the wrpping function discussed erlier. Ech pproch hs certin dvntges in prticulr situtions, nd you should ecome fmilir with the uses of oth pproches. It is ecuse of equtions () tht we re le to evlute circulr functions using clcultor set in rdin mode (see Section 5-). Generlly, unless certin emphsis is desired, we will not use rd fter rel numer. Tht is, we will interpret expressions such s sin 5.7 s the circulr function vlue sin 5.7 or the trigonometric function vlue sin (5.7 rd) y the context in which the expression occurs or the form we wish to emphsize. We will remin flexile nd often switch ck nd forth etween circulr function emphsis nd trigonometric function emphsis, depending on which pproch provides the most enlightenment for given sitution.

With little prctice you will e le to determine these vlues mentlly. Working with exct vlues hs dvntges over working with pproximte vlues in mny situtions. The esiest ngles to del with re qudrntl ngles since these ngles re integer multiples of 90 or /. It is esy to find the coordintes of point on coordinte xis.

Discuss other ngles in degree mesure for which the cotngent is not defined. For wht ngles in degree mesure is the cosecnt function not defined? Becuse the concept of reference tringle introduced in Definition (lternte form) plys n importnt role in much of the mteril tht follows, we restte its definition here nd define the relted concept of reference ngle. REFERENCE TRIANGLE AND REFERENCE ANGLE. To form reference tringle for, drw perpendiculr from point P(, ) on the terminl side of to the horizontl xis..

To this end, we first note tht 0 0 tringle forms hlf of n equilterl tringle, s indicted in Figure 7. Becuse ll sides re equl in n equilterl tringle, we cn pply the Pythgoren theorem to otin useful reltionship mong the three sides of the originl tringle:

All other cses cn e otined from this specil cse y multiplying or dividing the length of ech side of tringle in Figure 9 y the sme nonzero quntity.
