University of Waterloo CivE 331 Determine the Fourier Series representation of the following function using the half-range cosine expansion. Graph the expansion for n = 10. By inspection, the domain length ( L ) is 10. In the period of interest (0 < x < 10): ( 29 ( 29 < < = = < < + =---- 10 4 ; 62 . 14 5 5 4 ; 1 4 4 x e e e e x x x f kx kx k x k Substitute 10 = L into the HRC expression: ( 29 10 ; 10 cos 1 < < + = = x x n a a x f n n Substitute 10 = L and f ( x ) into the coefficient expressions: ( 29 ( 29 + + = = - 10 4 4 10 62 . 14 1 10 1 10 1 dx e dx x dx x f a kx ( 29 ( 29 + + = = - 10 4 4 10 10 cos 62 . 14 10 cos 1 10 2 10 cos 10 2 dx x n e dx x n x dx x n x f a kx n Now evaluate a and a n .
