250 L18 Unit Circle Approach; Properties of the Trigonometric Functions; Graphs of Sine and Cosine Functions Let ( , ) P xy = be a point on the Unit Circle that corresponds to the angle θ in standard position. Since 1 r = , the six trigonometric functions of the angle are: sin y = tan y x θ= , 0 x 1 csc y = , 0 y cos x cot x y = , 0 y 1 sec x , 0 x If is measured in radians, then the length of the arc of the unit circle subtended by the angle is 1 s =⋅ . Then, = s units of length 1 unit of length Therefore, angle expressed in radians has no dimension , that is, is a real number. Thus, in the table above, we defined the six trigonometric functions of a real number - angle expressed in radians .
