Unformatted text preview: 3 Radian Measure and Circular Functions Trigonometry Circular Functions A unit circle has its center at the origin and a radius of 1 unit. The trigonometric functions of I ‘ ‘ angle 9 in radians are found by ' G choosing a point (x. y) on the unit circle can be rewritten as H.111 functions of the arc length 5. When interpreted this way, they are called circular functions.

For example. the quadrant | real number % is associated with the point \ion the unit circle. The Unit Circle Since sin a = yand cos 3 = x, we can replace x and y in the equation of the unit circle ECircular function values of real numbers are [obtained in the same manner as ‘ E trigonometric function values of angles measured in radians. EThis applies both to methods offinding lexact values (such as reference angle I analysis) and to calculator approximations. x2 + y2 =1 to obtain the Pythagorean identity 2 ooszs+sin s=1. i Calculators must be In radian mode g when finding circular function values.

Remember; if you are finding a circular funcfion value of a real number, the calculator must be In radian mode.
