Vocabulary

Write a function for the sinusoid shown below. SOLUTION STEP 1 Find the maximum value M and minimum value m. From the graph, M = 5 and m = –1. STEP 2 Identify the vertical shift, k. The value of k is the mean of the maximum and minimum values. The vertical shift is k M + m 2 = 5 + (–1) 2 = 4 2 = = 2.

STEP 3 Decide whether the graph should be modeled by a sine or cosine function. Because the graph crosses the midline y = 2 on the y -axis, the graph is a sine curve with no horizontal shift. So, h = 0. STEP 4 Find the amplitude and period. The period is π 2 2π2π b = So, b = 4. So, k = 2. The amplitude is a M – mM – m 2 = = 3. 5 – (–1) 2 = 6 2 = The graph is not a reflection, so a > 0. Therefore, a = 3. ANSWER The function is y = 3 sin 4x + 2.

Circular Motion Jump Rope ROPE At a Double Dutch competition, two people swing jump ropes as shown in the diagram below. The highest point of the middle of each rope is 75 inches above the ground, and the lowest point is 3 inches. The rope makes 2 revolutions per second. Write a model for the height h (in feet) of a rope as a function of the time t (in seconds) if the rope is at its lowest point when t = 0.

SOLUTION STEP 1 Find the maximum and minimum values of the function. A rope’s maximum height is 75 inches, so M = 75. A rope’s minimum height is 3 inches, so m = 3. STEP 2 Identify the vertical shift. The vertical shift for the model is: k M + m 2 = 75 + 3 2 = = 78 2 = 39

STEP 3 Decide whether the height should be modeled by a sine or cosine function. When t = 0, the height is at its minimum. So, use a cosine function whose graph is a reflection in the x -axis with no horizontal shift (h = 0). The amplitude is a M – mM – m 2 = 75 – 3 2 = = 36. Because the graph is a reflection, a < 0. So, a = – 36. Because a rope is rotating at a rate of 2 revolutions per second, one revolution is completed in 0.5 second. So, the period is 2π2π b = 0.5, and b= 4π. ANSWER A model for the height of a rope is h = – 36 cos 4π t + 39. STEP 4 Find the amplitude and period.

Write a function for the sinusoid. 1. SOLUTION STEP 1 Find the maximum value M and minimum value m. From the graph, M = 2 and m = –2. STEP 2 Identify the vertical shift, k. The value of k is the mean of the maximum and minimum values. The vertical shift is k M + m 2 = 2 + (–2) 2 = 0 2 = = 0. So, k = 0.

1. STEP 3 Decide whether the graph should be modeled by a sine or cosine function. Because the graph peaks at y = 2 on the y -axis, the graph is a cos curve with no horizontal shift. So, h = 0. STEP 4 Find the amplitude and period. The period is So, b = 3. 2π 3 2π2π b = The amplitude is a M – mM – m 2 = = 2. 2 – (–2) 2 = 4 2 = The graph is not a reflection, so a > 0. Therefore, a = 2. ANSWER The function is y = 2 cos 3x.

Write a function for the sinusoid. 2. SOLUTION STEP 1 Find the maximum value M and minimum value m. From the graph, M = 1 and m = –3. STEP 2 Identify the vertical shift, k. The value of k is the mean of the maximum and minimum values. The vertical shift is k M + m 2 = 1 + (–3) 2 = 2 2 = = 1. So, k = 1.

STEP 3 STEP 4 Find the amplitude and period. The period is 2 So, b = π. 2. The amplitude is a M – mM – m 2 = = 2. 1 – (–3) 2 = 4 2 = The graph is not a reflection, so a > 0. Therefore, a = 2. ANSWER y = 2 sin π x – 1

Sinusoidal Regression Sinusoidal regression using a graphing calculator is another way to model sinusoids. The advantage is that the graphing calculator uses all of the data points to find the model.

Energy The table below shows the number of kilowatt hours K (in thousands) used each month for a given year by a hangar at the Cape Canaveral Air Station in Florida. The time t is measured in months, with t = 1 representing January. Write a trigonometric model that gives K as a function of t. SOLUTION STEP 1 Enter the data in a graphing calculator. STEP 2 Make a scatter plot.

STEP 3 Perform a sinusoidal regression, because the scatter plot appears sinusoidal. STEP 4 Graph the model and the data in the same viewing window. ANSWER The model appears to be a good fit. So, a model for the data is K = 23.9 sin (0.533t – 2.69) + 82.4.
