Lecture 15: Derivatives of Trigonometric Functions (Chapter 3, Section 15) ex. Find the following limits: 1) lim ± ! 0 sin ± = 2) lim ± ! 0 cos ± = To difierentiate the trig functions we need to flnd the important limit: lim ± ! 0 sin ± ± .

2 Recall (from lecture 2) the area of the sector of a circle with central angle ± and radius r is given by A = 1 2 r 2 ± . To evaluate lim ± ! 0 sin ± ± , consider the following sector of a circle with radius 1, and the related areas:

3 We can then evaluate: lim ± ! 0 cos ± ¡ 1 ± ex. Evaluate the limit: lim x ! 0 tan x x .

Unformatted text preview: tan x sec x . Find f ( x ) and each x-value for which the graph of f has a horizontal tangent line. 13 ex. A 60 foot agpole casts a shadow that changes with the suns elevation. If y is the length of the shadow and is the angle cast by the sun, nd the rate at which the length of the shadow is changing with respect to when = 4 . 6- 14 Try these!! 1. Evaluate the limits: (a) lim x ! sin 3 x tan 3 x (b) lim x ! 1 cos x x 2 (c) lim x ! 2 sin( x 2) x 2 + x 6 (d) lim x ! 2 cos x x 2 (Use a substitution, trig identity) 2. Find the equation of the tangent line to f ( x ) = e x sec x at x = 0. 3. Find each point at which f ( x ) = cos x 2 + sin x has a horizontal tangent line on the interval [0 ; 2 ]....
