Let θ be an angle in standard position and let P = ( a , b ) be the point on the unit circle that lies on the terminal side of θ . The sine function associates with θ the y -coordinate of P and is denoted by b = θ sin The cosine function associates with θ the x -coordinate of P and is denoted by a = cos
