In the first half of
the graph, we can see the person will
go up from 3 m to 33 m in 30 seconds.
In the second half, the person will go
back down to 3 m. 25
5 b. a-value: We know the diameter of the
wheel is 30 m, so the radius (which is
the same as amplitude) will be 15 m. 2π 2π π
P 60 30 time in either the cosine
equation. Simplify and
calculate with your TI-83 in
h(t ) = −15cos t + 18
h(52) = −15cos 52 + 18
h(52) = 7.96 m pattern. d-value: The centre of the wheel is 18
m above the ground, so that will be the
The cosine pattern is upside down,
so you need to put a negative in front. π 30 30 40 50 60 Time (s) c-value: There is none in the cosine h(t) = -15cos 20 c. Method 1: Plug 52 s in for b-value: The period is 60 s, so: b= 10 d. Method 2: Put your
calculator in radian mode
and graph either the
