Unformatted text preview: lled the phase of the sinusoid. Since our interest φ in this book is primarily with graphing sinusoids, we focus our attention on the horizontal shift − ω induced by φ. The proof of Theorem 10.23 is a direct application of Theorem 1.7 in Section 1.8 and is left to the reader. The parameter ω , which is stipulated to be positive, is called the (angular) frequency of the sinusoid and is the number of cycles the sinusoid completes over a 2π interval. We can always ensure ω > 0 using the Even/Odd Identities.7 We now test out Theorem 10.23 using the functions f and g featured in Example 10.5.1. First, we write f (x) in the form prescribed in Theorem 10.23, πx − π π π + 1 = 3 cos x+ − + 1, 2 2 2 so that A = 3, ω = π , φ = − π and B = 1. According to Theorem 10.23, the period of f is 2 2 φ 2π 2π = π/2 = 4, the amplitude is |A| = |3| = 3, the phase shift is − ω = − −π/2 = 1 (indicating ω π/2 f (x) = 3 cos 7 Try using the formulas in Theorem 10.23 applied to C (x) = cos(−x + π ) to see why we need ω &...

    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.
