Unformatted text preview: pair, a similar effect occurs when theta increases from 0 degrees to 90 degrees. Cosine’s function is x/radius, making cosine of this problem x/12. Therefore, cosine of theta decreases from 1 to 0. Sine’s function is y/radius, making sine of this problem y/12. Therefore, sine of theta increases from 0 to 1. Tangent’s function is y/x, making tangent of this problem y/x. therefore, tangent of theta increases without bound. An interesting detail to consider is that when theta is 90 degrees, tangent is undefined because x = 0 at 90 degrees....
