However the phase shift will be different. Some real-world phenomena that can be modeled by sinusoidal functions are forecasting the weather. We can you the sinusoidal functions to determine the estimated weather for the year. We can also use sinusoidal functions for health reasons, such as determining the amount of calories in certain given items. Also sinusoidal functions can be used for health reasons in determining the average amount of air that is in the lungs of an adult when he/she take a breath. There are so many ways in the real-world that sinusoidal functions can be used to determine certain factors or patterns in every life....
