**The first complete wave finishes here.**

Maximum of 0.5 1 x It must be a COSINE graph because the first bump is on the y-axis. O 90o 180o 270o 360o -1 2. Next, look at the height. -2 Therefore, the height is 3 units. This is the middle of the wave and it has been moved 1 unit down from the x-axis. -3 Normally, a COSINE graph has a height of 2. Therefore the height has been multiplied by 3 ÷ 2 = 1.5 Minimum of –2.5 4. Finally, find out how much it has been moved down (or up). Click to continue. Therefore, we get –1. 3. Now, consider the period. This means the period is 180o so 360o ÷ 180o = 2. y = 1.5 cos 2xo - 1 y = 1.5 cos 2xo - 1
