1 UNIT CIRCLE TRIGONOMETRY The Unit Cicle is the cicle centeed at the oigin with adius unit (hence, the unit cicle. The equation of this cicle is + =. A diagam of the unit cicle is shown below: + = We have peviousl applied tigonomet to tiangles that wee dawn with no efeence to an coodinate sstem. Because the adius of the unit cicle is, we will see that it povides a convenient famewok within which we can appl tigonomet to the coodinate plane. Dawing Angles in Standad Position We will fist lean how angles ae dawn within the coodinate plane. An angle is said to be in standad position if the vete of the angle is at (0, 0 and the initial side of the angle lies along the positive -ais. If the angle measue is positive, then the angle has been ceated b a counteclockwise otation fom the initial to the teminal side. If the angle measue is negative, then the angle has been ceated b a clockwise otation fom the initial to the teminal side. θ in standad position, whee θ is positive: Teminal side θ in standad position, whee θ is negative: θ Initial side Initial side θ Teminal side Unit Cicle Tigonomet Dawing Angles in Standad Position

2 Eamples The following angles ae dawn in standad position:. θ = 40. θ = 60 θ θ. θ = 0 θ Notice that the teminal sides in eamples and ae in the same position, but the do not epesent the same angle (because the amount and diection of the otation in each is diffeent. Such angles ae said to be coteminal. Eecises Sketch each of the following angles in standad position. (Do not use a potacto; just daw a bief sketch.. θ = 0. θ = 4. θ = 0 4. θ = 70 θ = θ = 70 Unit Cicle Tigonomet Dawing Angles in Standad Position

3 Labeling Special Angles on the Unit Cicle We ae going to deal pimail with special angles aound the unit cicle, namel the multiples of 0 o, 4 o, 60 o, and 90 o. All angles thoughout this unit will be dawn in standad position. Fist, we will daw a unit cicle and label the angles that ae multiples of 90 o. These angles, known as quadantal angles, have thei teminal side on eithe the -ais o the - ais. (We have limited ou diagam to the quadantal angles fom 0 o to 60 o. Multiples of 90 o : 90 o 80 o o 0 o 60 o Note: The 0 o angle is said to be coteminal with the 60 o angle. (Coteminal angles ae angles dawn in standad position that shae a teminal side. Net, we will epeat the same pocess fo multiples of 0 o, 4 o, and 60 o. (Notice that thee is a geat deal of ovelap between the diagams.

Since the unit cicle has adius, these coodinates ae eas to identif; the ae listed in the table below.

5 Fist, we will daw a ight tiangle that is based on a 0 o efeence angle. (When an angle is dawn in standad position, its efeence angle is the positive acute angle measued fom the -ais to the angle s teminal side. The concept of a efeence angle is cucial when woking with angles in othe quadants and will be discussed in detail late in this unit. - 0 o - Notice that the above tiangle is a 0 o -60 o -90 o tiangle. Since the adius of the unit cicle is, the hpotenuse of the tiangle has length. Let us call the hoizontal side of the tiangle, and the vetical side of the tiangle, as shown below. (Onl the fist quadant is shown, since the tiangle is located in the fist quadant. 0 o (, 60 o We want to find the values of and, so that we can ultimatel find the coodinates of the point (, whee the teminal side of the 0 o angle intesects the unit cicle. Recall ou theoem about 0 o -60 o -90 o tiangles: In a 0 o -60 o -90 o tiangle, the length of the hpotenuse is twice the length of the shote leg, and the length of the longe leg is times the length of the shote leg.

We again want to find the values of and. Recall ou theoem fom the pevious unit: In a 4 o -4 o -90 o tiangle, the legs ae conguent, and the length of the hpotenuse is times the length of eithe leg. Since the length of the hpotenuse is times the length of eithe leg, we can sa that the hpotenuse has length. But we know alead that the hpotenuse has length, so =. Solving fo, we find that =. Rationalizing the denominato, = =. Since the legs ae conguent, =, so =. Unit Cicle Tigonomet Coodinates of Quadantal Angles and Fist Quadant Special Angles

8 Based on the values of the sides of the tiangle, we now know the coodinates of the point (, whee the teminal side of the 4 o angle intesects the unit cicle. This is the point (,, as shown below.

9 Definitions of the Si Tigonometic Functions We will soon lean how to appl the coodinates of the unit cicle to find tigonometic functions, but we want to peface this discussion with a moe geneal definition of the si tigonometic functions. Definitions of the Si Tigonometic Functions: Geneal Case Let θ be an angle dawn in standad position, and let P (, epesent the point whee the teminal side of the angle intesects the cicle tigonometic functions ae defined as follows: + =. The si sin ( θ = csc( θ = = ( 0 sin ( θ cos( θ = sec( θ = cos( θ = ( 0 tan ( θ = ( 0 cot ( θ = = ( 0 tan ( θ Altenative definitions fo the tangent and the cotangent functions ae as follows: tan sin ( θ ( θ = cot ( θ cos( θ cos = sin ( θ ( θ The above functions ae not eall new to us if we elate them to ou pevious unit on ight tiangle tigonomet. Fo the pupose of emembeing the fomulas, we will choose to daw an angle θ in standad position in the fist quadant, and then daw a ight tiangle in the fist quadant which contains that angle, inscibed in the cicle + =. (Remembe that the cicle + = is centeed at the oigin with adius. We label the hoizontal side of the tiangle, the vetical side, and the hpotenuse (since it epesents the adius of the cicle. A diagam of the tiangle is shown below. Unit Cicle Tigonomet Definitions of the Si Tigonometic Functions

Recall the fomulas fo the basic tigonometic atios which we leaned in the pevious unit on ight tiangle tigonomet, shown below in abbeviated fom: Mnemonic: SOH-CAH-TOA sin( = cos( = tan( = Opposite Adjacent Opposite θ Hpotenuse θ Hpotenuse θ Adjacent and the ecipocal tigonometic atios: csc( θ = = sin( θ Hpotenuse Opposite sec( θ = = cos( θ Hpotenuse Adjacent cot( θ = = tan( θ Adjacent Opposite Using these fomulas in the tiangle fom the diagam above, we obtain ou si tigonometic functions which we appl to the coodinate plane: sin( θ = = Opposite Hpotenuse csc( θ = = = sin( θ Hpotenuse Opposite cos( θ = = Adjacent Hpotenuse sec( θ = = = cos( θ Hpotenuse Adjacent tan( θ = = Opposite Adjacent cot( θ = = = tan( θ Adjacent Opposite Unit Cicle Tigonomet Definitions of the Si Tigonometic Functions

11 Note that even though we dew the ight tiangle in the fist quadant in ode to easil elate these fomulas to ight tiangle tigonomet, these definitions appl to an angle. (We will discuss late how to popel daw ight tiangles in othe quadants. Right tiangles can not be dawn to illustate the quadantal angles, but the above fomulas still appl. Finall, let us justif the new fomulas fo tangent and cotangent. (We will do this algebaicall, not with ou ight tiangle pictue fom above. Ou altenative definition sin( θ fo the tangent atio is tan ( θ = cos( θ. If we substitute sin( θ = and cos( θ = into this equation, we can see that ou altenative definition is equivalent to ou definition tan( θ =. The algebaic justification is shown below: tan ( θ sin ( θ = = = = cos( θ Similal, ou altenative definition fo the cotangent atio is cot ( θ = cos sin ( θ ( θ. If we substitute sin( θ = and cos( θ = into this equation, we can see that ou altenative definition fo cotangent is equivalent to the fomula cot( θ = tan( θ =. The algebaic justification is shown below: cot ( θ cos( θ = = = = sin ( θ Let us now appl ou tigonometic definitions to the unit cicle. Since the unit cicle has adius, we can see that ou tigonometic functions ae geatl simplified: sin( θ = = = csc( θ = =, 0 cos( θ = = = sec( θ = =, 0 tan ( θ ( θ ( θ sin = =, 0 cos cot ( θ ( θ ( θ cos = =, 0 sin Unit Cicle Tigonomet Definitions of the Si Tigonometic Functions

Note that the value of a tigonometic function fo an given angle emains constant egadless of the adius of the cicle. Fo eample, let us suppose that we want to find sin ( 60 in two diffeent was, using the following two diagams. (Onl the fist quadant is shown, since that is all that is needed fo the poblem.

Eample Find fou angles that ae coteminal with a 0 o angle dawn in standad position. Solution: To find angles coteminal with 0 o, we add to it an multiple of 60 o, since adding 60 o means adding eactl one evolution, which keeps the teminal side of the angle in the same position.

But what if we don t have a diagam of the unit cicle, and we don t wish to daw one? It is assumed that the quadantal angles (multiples of 90 o -- on the aes ae fail eas to visualize without a diagam. One option is to memoize the coodinates of the special angles in the fist quadant of the unit cicle (0 o, 4 o, and 60 o, and use those values to find the tigonometic functions of angles in othe quadants. We will discuss a few was of finding the basic tigonometic functions of 0 o, 4 o, and 60 o (othe than memoizing the coodinates of these special angles in the fist quadant of the unit cicle. One method is to use a basic 4 o -4 o -90 o tiangle and a 0 o -60 o -90 o tiangle to deive the tigonometic functions of 0 o, 4 o, and 60 o. We leaned ealie in the unit that the sin 0 is alwas tigonometic functions ae constant fo an given angle; fo eample, (, egadless of the size of the adius of the cicle o the size of the tiangle dawn. So we can choose an 4 o -4 o -90 o tiangle and 0 o -60 o -90 o tiangle to wok fom. Fo simplicit, let us choose both tiangles to have a shote leg of length, as shown below: 4 o 60 o 4 o 0 o Recall that in a 4 o -4 o -90 o tiangle, the legs ae conguent, and the length of the hpotenuse is times the length of eithe leg.

28 Evaluating Tigonometic Functions of Othe Angles Now that we have eploed the tigonometic functions of special angles, we will biefl look at how to find tigonometic functions of othe angles. Fist, we will deive an impotant tigonometic identit, known as a Pthagoean Identit. It can be elated to the Pthagoean Theoem; conside the following ight tiangle (dawn in the fist quadant fo simplicit. + = θ We can see that the equation + = (the equation of a cicle with adius is also the Pthagoean Theoem as it elates to the ight tiangle above. Let us now diect ou attention to the unit cicle. Since the adius is, an point on the cicle itself satisfies the equation + = (the equation of a cicle with adius.

We wite ( cos( θ as cos ( sin θ as sin ( ( ( + =. It is standad pactice in tigonomet to wite these θ, and we wite θ. We then obtain the following tigonometic identit: ( θ ( θ cos + sin = The identit ( θ ( θ cos + sin = applies to an angle dawn in an cicle of adius, not just the unit cicle. A shot justification is shown below. Unit Cicle Tigonomet Evaluating Tigonometic Functions of Othe Angles

29 We begin with the geneal equation of a cicle of adius : + = Dividing both sides b, we obtain the equation + =. Simplifing the equation, + =. The equation can then be ewitten as + =. Fo a cicle of adius, we know fom ou geneal tigonometic definitions that cos( θ = and sin ( θ =. We substitute these into the above equation and conclude that ( θ ( θ cos sin + =. We will now use this Pthagoean identit to help us to find tigonometic functions of angles. Eample sin θ = and 90 < θ < 80 If ( Unit Cicle Tigonomet, find the eact values of cos ( θ and ( tan θ.
