The functions cost and sin I oscillate with a frequency of v 2 1/271, since they go through one complete cycle every 2n radians. The functions cos(wt) and sin(a)t) go through a) complete cycles every 271 radians, so they oscillate with a frequency of v 2 (0/221 A linear combination of these functions (for example, A cos wt + B sin cut) will oscillate with the same frequency, cu/27r. __________________________________.._——————-——-—-———-- 24.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
