The phase indicates what 1 2 See Section 6.5. Sine haters can use the co-function identity cos π 2 − θ = sin(θ) to turn all of the sines into cosines. 748 Applications of Trigonometry angle φ corresponds to t = 0, and the phase shift represents how much of a ‘head start’ the sinusoid has over the un-shifted sine function. The ﬁgure below is repeated from Section 10.5. amplitude baseline period In Section 10.1.1, we introduced the concept of circular motion and in Section 10.2.1, we developed formulas for circular motion. Our ﬁrst foray into sinusoidal motion puts these notions to good use. Example 11.1.1. Recall from Exercise 8 in Section 10.1 that The Giant Wheel at Cedar Point is a circle with diameter 128 feet which sits on an 8 foot tall p...

### What students are saying

• 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.
