1 0. The Unit Circle: Cosine and Sine The Unit Circle: Cosine and Sine In Section 0.., we introduced circular motion and derived a formula which describes the linear velocit of an object moving on a circular path at a constant angular velocit. One of the goals of this section is describe the position of such an object. To that end, consider an angle in standard position and let P denote the point where the terminal side of intersects the Unit Circle. B associating the point P with the angle, we are assigning a position on the Unit Circle to the angle. The -coordinate of P is called the cosine of, written cos(, while the -coordinate of P is called the sine of, written sin(. The reader is encouraged to verif that these rules used to match an angle with its cosine and sine do, in fact, satisf the definition of a function. That is, for each angle, there is onl one associated value of cos( and onl one associated value of sin(. P (cos(, sin( Eample 0...

To find cos (70 and sin (70, we plot the angle = 70 in standard position and find the point on the terminal side of which lies on the Unit Circle. Since 70 represents 4 of a counter-clockwise revolution, the terminal side of lies along the negative -ais. Hence, the point we seek is (0, so that cos ( ( = 0 and sin =.. The angle = represents one half of a clockwise revolution so its terminal side lies on the negative -ais. The point on the Unit Circle that lies on the negative -ais is (, 0 which means cos( = and sin( = 0. The etmolog of the name sine is quite colorful, and the interested reader is invited to research it; the co in cosine is eplained in Section 0.4.

When we sketch = 45 in standard position, we see that its terminal does not lie along an of the coordinate aes which makes our job of finding the cosine and sine values a bit more difficult. Let P (, denote the point on the terminal side of which lies on the Unit Circle. B definition, = cos (45 and = sin (45. If we drop a perpendicular line segment from P to the -ais, we obtain a right triangle whose legs have lengths and units. From Geometr, we get =. Since P (, lies on the Unit Circle, we have + =.

3 0. The Unit Circle: Cosine and Sine As before, the terminal side of = does not lie on an of the coordinate aes, so we proceed using a triangle approach. Letting P (, denote the point on the terminal side of which lies on the Unit Circle, we drop a perpendicular line segment from P to the -ais to form a right triangle. After a bit of Geometr we find = so sin ( =. Since P (, lies on the Unit Circle, we substitute = into + = to get = 4, or = ±. Here, > 0 so = cos ( =. P (, P (, = 0 = = 0 5. Plotting = 0 in standard position, we find it is not a quadrantal angle and set about using a triangle approach. Once again, we get a right triangle and, after the usual computations, find = cos (0 = and = sin (0 = P (,. P (, = 0 0 = 0 Again, can ou show this?
4 70 Foundations of Trigonometr In Eample 0.., it was quite eas to find the cosine and sine of the quadrantal angles, but for non-quadrantal angles, the task was much more involved. In these latter cases, we made good use of the fact that the point P (, = (cos(, sin( lies on the Unit Circle, + =. If we substitute = cos( and = sin( into + =, we get (cos( + (sin( =. An unfortunate 4 convention, which the authors are compelled to perpetuate, is to write (cos( as cos ( and (sin( as sin (. Rewriting the identit using this convention results in the following theorem, which is without a doubt one of the most important results in Trigonometr. Theorem 0.. The Pthagorean Identit: For an angle, cos ( + sin ( =. The moniker Pthagorean brings to mind the Pthagorean Theorem, from which both the Distance Formula and the equation for a circle are ultimatel derived. 5 The word Identit reminds us that, regardless of the angle, the equation in Theorem 0. is alwas true. If one of cos( or sin( is known, Theorem 0. can be used to determine the other, up to a (± sign. If, in addition, we know where the terminal side of lies when in standard position, then we can remove the ambiguit of the (± and completel determine the missing value as the net eample illustrates. Eample 0... Using the given information about, find the indicated value.. If is a Quadrant II angle with sin( = 5, find cos(.. If < < with cos( = 5 5, find sin(.. If sin( =, find cos(. Solution.. When we substitute sin( = 5 into The Pthagorean Identit, cos ( + sin ( =, we obtain cos ( =. Solving, we find cos( = ± 4 5. Since is a Quadrant II angle, its terminal side, when plotted in standard position, lies in Quadrant II. Since the -coordinates are negative in Quadrant II, cos( is too. Hence, cos( = Substituting cos( = 5 5 into cos ( + sin ( = gives sin( = ± 5 = ± 5 5. Since we are given that < <, we know is a Quadrant III angle. Hence both its sine and cosine are negative and we conclude sin( = When we substitute sin( = into cos ( + sin ( =, we find cos( = 0. Another tool which helps immensel in determining cosines and sines of angles is the smmetr inherent in the Unit Circle. Suppose, for instance, we wish to know the cosine and sine of = 5. We plot in standard position below and, as usual, let P (, denote the point on the terminal side of which lies on the Unit Circle. Note that the terminal side of lies half revolution. In Eample 0.., we determined that cos ( = and sin ( 4 This is unfortunate from a function notation perspective. See Section See Sections. and 7. for details. radians short of one =. This means

The Unit Circle: Cosine and Sine 7 that the point on the terminal side of the angle, when plotted in standard position, is ( From the figure below, it is clear that the point P (, we seek can be obtained b reflecting that point about the -ais. Hence, cos ( 5 = and sin ( 5 =.,. P (, = 5 P, = 5, In the above scenario, the angle is called the reference angle for the angle 5. In general, for a non-quadrantal angle, the reference angle for (usuall denoted is the acute angle made between the terminal side of and the -ais. If is a Quadrant I or IV angle, is the angle between the terminal side of and the positive -ais; if is a Quadrant II or III angle, is the angle between the terminal side of and the negative -ais. If we let P denote the point (cos(, sin(, then P lies on the Unit Circle. Since the Unit Circle possesses smmetr with respect to the -ais, -ais and origin, regardless of where the terminal side of lies, there is a point Q smmetric with P which determines s reference angle, as seen below.

Visualizing = has reference angle (c Taking a cue from the previous problem, we rewrite = as = + (. The angle represents one and a half revolutions counter-clockwise, so that when we back up radians, we end up in Quadrant II. Using the Reference Angle Theorem, we get cos( = 5 and sin( =.

Let Q(, be the point on the terminal side of which lies on the Unit Circle so that = cos( and = sin(.

Solution. Since there is no contet in the problem to indicate whether to use degrees or radians, we will default to using radian measure in our answers to each of these problems. This choice will be justified later in the tet when we stud what is known as Analtic Trigonometr. In those sections to come, radian measure will be the onl appropriate angle measure so it is worth the time to become fluent in radians now.. If cos( =, then the terminal side of, when plotted in standard position, intersects the Unit Circle at =. This means is a Quadrant I or IV angle with reference angle. One solution in Quadrant I is =, and since all other Quadrant I solutions must be coterminal with, we find = +k for integers k.9 Proceeding similarl for the Quadrant IV case, we find the solution to cos( = here is 5, so our answer in this Quadrant is = 5 + k for integers k.. If sin( =, then when is plotted in standard position, its terminal side intersects the Unit Circle at =. From this, we determine is a Quadrant III or Quadrant IV angle with reference angle. 8 We will more formall stud of trigonometric equations in Section 0.7. Enjo these relativel straightforward eercises while the last! 9 Recall in Section 0., two angles in radian measure are coterminal if and onl if the differ b an integer multiple of.

In Quadrant IV, one solution is so all the solutions here are of the form = + k for integers k.. The angles with cos( = 0 are quadrantal angles whose terminal sides, when plotted in standard position, lie along the -ais. While, technicall speaking, isn t a reference angle we can nonetheless use it to find our answers. If we follow the procedure set forth in the previous eamples, we find = + k and = + k for integers, k. While this solution is correct, it can be shortened to = + k for integers k. (Can ou see wh this works from the diagram? One of the ke items to take from Eample 0..5 is that, in general, solutions to trigonometric equations consist of infinitel man answers. To get a feel for these answers, the reader is encouraged to follow our mantra from Chapter 9 - that is, When in doubt, write it out! This is especiall important when checking answers to the eercises. For eample, another Quadrant IV solution to sin( = is =.

14 70 Foundations of Trigonometr different than the stated solution of = + k for integers k, we leave it to the reader to show the represent the same list of angles. 0.. Beond the Unit Circle We began the section with a quest to describe the position of a particle eperiencing circular motion. In defining the cosine and sine functions, we assigned to each angle a position on the Unit Circle. In this subsection, we broaden our scope to include circles of radius r centered at the origin. Consider for the moment the acute angle drawn below in standard position. Let Q(, be the point on the terminal side of which lies on the circle + = r, and let P (, be the point on the terminal side of which lies on the Unit Circle. Now consider dropping perpendiculars from P and Q to create two right triangles, OP A and OQB. These triangles are similar, 0 thus it follows that = r = r, so = r and, similarl, we find = r. Since, b definition, = cos( and = sin(, we get the coordinates of Q to be = r cos( and = r sin(. B reflecting these points through the -ais, -ais and origin, we obtain the result for all non-quadrantal angles, and we leave it to the reader to verif these formulas hold for the quadrantal angles. r Q (, P (, r P (, Q(, = (r cos(, r sin( O A(, 0 B(, 0 Not onl can we describe the coordinates of Q in terms of cos( and sin( but since the radius of the circle is r = +, we can also epress cos( and sin( in terms of the coordinates of Q. These results are summarized in the following theorem. Theorem 0.. If Q(, is the point on the terminal side of an angle, plotted in standard position, which lies on the circle + = r then = r cos( and = r sin(. Moreover, cos( = r = and sin( = + r = + 0 Do ou remember wh?
15 0. The Unit Circle: Cosine and Sine 7 Note that in the case of the Unit Circle we have r = + =, so Theorem 0. reduces to our definitions of cos( and sin(. Eample Suppose that the terminal side of an angle, when plotted in standard position, contains the point Q(4,. Find sin( and cos(.. In Eample 0..5 in Section 0., we approimated the radius of the earth at 4.8 north latitude to be 90 miles. Justif this approimation if the radius of the Earth at the Equator is approimatel 90 miles. Solution.. Using Theorem 0. with = 4 and =, we find r = (4 + ( = 0 = 5 so that cos( = r = 4 = and = r = = Assuming the Earth is a sphere, a cross-section through the poles produces a circle of radius 90 miles. Viewing the Equator as the -ais, the value we seek is the -coordinate of the point Q(, indicated in the figure below Q(4, 4.8 Q (, 90 4 The terminal side of contains Q(4, A point on the Earth at 4.8 N Using Theorem 0., we get = 90 cos (4.8. Using a calculator in degree mode, we find 90 cos ( Hence, the radius of the Earth at North Latitude 4.8 is approimatel 90 miles.
16 7 Foundations of Trigonometr Theorem 0. gives us what we need to describe the position of an object traveling in a circular path of radius r with constant angular velocit ω. Suppose that at time t, the object has swept out an angle measuring radians. If we assume that the object is at the point (r, 0 when t = 0, the angle is in standard position. B definition, ω = t which we rewrite as = ωt. According to Theorem 0., the location of the object Q(, on the circle is found using the equations = r cos( = r cos(ωt and = r sin( = r sin(ωt. Hence, at time t, the object is at the point (r cos(ωt, r sin(ωt. We have just argued the following. Equation 0.. Suppose an object is traveling in a circular path of radius r centered at the origin with constant angular velocit ω. If t = 0 corresponds to the point (r, 0, then the and coordinates of the object are functions of t and are given b = r cos(ωt and = r sin(ωt. Here, ω > 0 indicates a counter-clockwise direction and ω < 0 indicates a clockwise direction. r Q (, = (r cos(ωt, r sin(ωt = ωt r Equations for Circular Motion Eample Suppose we are in the situation of Eample Find the equations of motion of Lakeland Communit College as the earth rotates. Solution. From Eample 0..5, we take r = 90 miles and and ω = hours. Hence, the equations of motion are = r cos(ωt = 90 cos ( t and = r sin(ωt = 90 sin ( t, where and are measured in miles and t is measured in hours. In addition to circular motion, Theorem 0. is also the ke to developing what is usuall called right triangle trigonometr. As we shall see in the sections to come, man applications in trigonometr involve finding the measures of the angles in, and lengths of the sides of, right triangles. Indeed, we made good use of some properties of right triangles to find the eact values of the cosine and sine of man of the angles in Eample 0.., so the following development shouldn t be that much of a surprise. Consider the generic right triangle below with corresponding acute angle. The side with length a is called the side of the triangle adjacent to ; the side with length b is called the side of the triangle opposite ; and the remaining side of length c (the side opposite the You ma have been eposed to this in High School.
17 0. The Unit Circle: Cosine and Sine 7 right angle is called the hpotenuse. We now imagine drawing this triangle in Quadrant I so that the angle is in standard position with the adjacent side to ling along the positive -ais. c P (a, b c b c a According to the Pthagorean Theorem, a + b = c, so that the point P (a, b lies on a circle of radius c. Theorem 0. tells us that cos( = a c and sin( = b c, so we have determined the cosine and sine of in terms of the lengths of the sides of the right triangle. Thus we have the following theorem. Theorem 0.4. Suppose is an acute angle residing in a right triangle. If the length of the side adjacent to is a, the length of the side opposite is b, and the length of the hpotenuse is c, then cos( = a c and sin( = b c. Eample Find the measure of the missing angle and the lengths of the missing sides of: 0 Solution. The first and easiest task is to find the measure of the missing angle. Since the sum of angles of a triangle is 80, we know that the missing angle has measure = 0. We now proceed to find the lengths of the remaining two sides of the triangle. Let c denote the length of the hpotenuse of the triangle. B Theorem 0.4, we have cos (0 = 7 c, or c = 7 7 cos(0. Since cos (0 =, we have, after the usual fraction gmnastics, c = 4. At this point, we have two was to proceed to find the length of the side opposite the 0 angle, which we ll denote b. We know the length of the adjacent side is 7 and the length of the hpotenuse is 4, so we
18 74 Foundations of Trigonometr ( could use the Pthagorean Theorem to find the missing side and solve (7 + b = 4 for b. Alternativel, we could use Theorem 0.4, namel that sin (0 = b c. Choosing the latter, we find b = c sin (0 = 4 = 7. The triangle with all of its data is recorded below. c = 4 0 b = We close this section b noting that we can easil etend the functions cosine and sine to real numbers b identifing a real number t with the angle = t radians. Using this identification, we define cos(t = cos( and sin(t = sin(. In practice this means epressions like cos( and sin( can be found b regarding the inputs as angles in radian measure or real numbers; the choice is the reader s. If we trace the identification of real numbers t with angles in radian measure to its roots on page 704, we can spell out this correspondence more precisel. For each real number t, we associate an oriented arc t units in length with initial point (, 0 and endpoint P (cos(t, sin(t. P (cos(t, sin(t = t t = t In the same wa we studied polnomial, rational, eponential, and logarithmic functions, we will stud the trigonometric functions f(t = cos(t and g(t = sin(t. The first order of business is to find the domains and ranges of these functions. Whether we think of identifing the real number t with the angle = t radians, or think of wrapping an oriented arc around the Unit Circle to find coordinates on the Unit Circle, it should be clear that both the cosine and sine functions are defined for all real numbers t. In other words, the domain of f(t = cos(t and of g(t = sin(t is (,. Since cos(t and sin(t represent - and -coordinates, respectivel, of points on the Unit Circle, the both take on all of the values between an, inclusive. In other words, the range of f(t = cos(t and of g(t = sin(t is the interval [, ]. To summarize:

Our solution is onl cosmeticall different in that the variable used is t rather than : t = 7 + k or t = + k for integers, k. We will stud the cosine and sine functions in greater detail in Section 0.5. Until then, keep in mind that an properties of cosine and sine developed in the following sections which regard them as functions of angles in radian measure appl equall well if the inputs are regarded as real numbers. Well, to be pedantic, we would be technicall using reference numbers or reference arcs instead of reference angles but the idea is the same.
