The Sine Function has this beautiful up-down curve (which repeats every 2π radians, or 360°). It starts at 0, heads up to 1 by π/2 radians (90°) and then heads down to −1.

## What is the sin at 0?

Question 1) What is the Value of Sin 0? Answer) In Mathematics, the value of sin 0 degree is always equal to 0.

## How do you know if a graph is sin or cos?

In a cosine graph, a positive or negative number vertically flips the graph and determines whether the graph starts at the maximum (if it’s positive) or minimum (if it’s negative). For a sine graph, a positive or negative number vertically flips the graph like it does with a cosine graph.

## At what point does the sine function start?

The initial point of a positive sin graph will always start at its midline. Then as x increases, the function will curve to its maximum, pass through the midline, curve to its minimum, and then return the midline to end one period.

## Does Cos start at minimum?

The curve of a cosine function is isomorphic to a sine function’s curve that has been pulled back, or phase shifted o/2 units to the left. In other words, the cosine curve starts at its maximum or minimum value.

## Where is sin 0 on the unit circle?

On the unit circle, the x-coordinate at each position is the cosine of the given angle, and the y-coordinate is the sine. For θ=0 , the rightmost point, the coordinate pair is (1, 0). The y-coordinate is 0, so sin(0)=0 .

## What is cos 0 in radians?

Sines and cosines for special common angles

Degrees | Radians | cosine |
---|---|---|

60° | π/3 | 1/2 |

45° | π/4 | √2 / 2 |

30° | π/6 | √3 / 2 |

0° | 1 |

## How do you convert between sin and cos?

All triangles have 3 angles that add to 180 degrees. Therefore, if one angle is 90 degrees we can figure out Sin Theta = Cos (90 – Theta) and Cos Theta = Sin (90 – Theta).

## Why Sine is called sine?

The word “sine” (Latin “sinus”) comes from a Latin mistranslation by Robert of Chester of the Arabic jiba, which is a transliteration of the Sanskrit word for half the chord, jya-ardha.

## What does a cos graph look like?

To graph the cosine function, we mark the angle along the horizontal x axis, and for each angle, we put the cosine of that angle on the vertical y-axis. The result, as seen above, is a smooth curve that varies from +1 to -1. It is the same shape as the cosine function but displaced to the left 90°.

## What is the period for cosine?

The period of a periodic function is the interval of x-values on which the cycle of the graph that’s repeated in both directions lies. Therefore, in the case of the basic cosine function, f(x) = cos(x), the period is 2π.

## What is the period of y sin 3x )?

So, the period of sin 3x is 2π/3 or 2/3 π.

## How do you know if a sine graph is negative?

The intersections of this graph and the x-axis are still at x=0, x=pi, and x=2pi. The difference with a negative value of a however, is our sine curve now has a negative amplitude. In other words, our graphs are the same as when a was a positive value, but are now reflected across the x-axis.

## How do you find the maximum and minimum of a cosine function?

The maximum value of the function is M = A + |B|. This maximum value occurs whenever sin x = 1 or cos x = 1. The minimum value of the function is m = A ‐ |B|. This minimum occurs whenever sin x = −1 or cos x = −1.

## Why can cosine never be greater than 1?

Note: Since the sine and cosine ratios involve dividing a leg (one of the shorter two sides) by the hypotenuse, the values will never be more than 1, because (some number) / (a bigger number) from a right triangle is always going to be smaller than 1.

## How do you find the maximum and minimum of a midline?

midline = 1 2 (max + min) = 1 2 (40 + (-20)) = 10. The amplitude is half the distance between the max and the min, so amplitude = 1 2 (max – min) = 1 2 (40 – (-20)) = 30.
