Suppose that the height of the tide, h meters, at the harbor entrance is modeled by the function h = 2.5sin 30t o + 5 where t is the number of hours after midnight. a) When is the height of the tide 6 meters? If h = 6, 6 = 2.5sin 30t + 5 sin 30t = 0.4 30t = 23.58 or 156.42 t = 0.786 hours or 5.214 hours The height is 6 meters at 12:47 a.m. and 7:13 a.m. Since the period is 12 (12 hours) there is also 12 + 0.786 and 12 + 5.214 in the 24 hour period. This gives 12:47 p.m. and 5:13 p.m. The graph is shown below. The line represents the 6 meter tide.

Unformatted text preview: b) If a boat can only enter and leave the harbor when the depth of the water exceeds 6 meters, for how long each day is this possible? Twice a day for 4 hours and 26 minutes. 8. How can you determine, prior to solving a trigonometric equation, how many possible answers you should have? Determine how many periods are in the interval in which the solutions lie and how many solutions are found within one period. This will give the total number of solutions. 5. cos 2 x + 2cos x + 1 = 0 (cos x + 1)(2cos x + 1) = 0 cos x = -1 x = 180 o 6 . 2sin 2 x = sin x 2sin 2 x – sin x= 0 sin x(2sin x – 1) = 0 sin x = 0 or sin x = ½ x = 0, 180 o , 30 o , 150 o...

    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.
