GRAPHING SINE AND COSINE FUNCTIONS In previous chapters you learned that the graph of y = a • f (x – h) + k is related to the graph of y = | a | • f (x) by horizontal and vertical translations and by a reflection when a is negative. This also applies to sine, cosine, and tangent functions.

GRAPHING SINE AND COSINE FUNCTIONS
TRANSFORMATIONS OF SINE AND COSINE GRAPHS To obtain the graph of y = a sin b (x – h) + k or y = a cos b (x – h) + k Transform the graph of y = | a | sin bx or y = | a | cos bx as follows.

Modeling Circular Motion
FERRIS WHEEL You are riding a Ferris wheel. Your height h (in feet) above the ground at any time t (in seconds) can be modeled by the following equation: h = 25 sin t – 15 The Ferris wheel turns for 135 seconds before it stops to let the first passengers off. Graph your height above the ground as a function of time. What are your minimum and maximum heights above the ground?

Modeling Circular Motion
h = 25 sin t – 15 SOLUTION The amplitude is 25 and the period is = 30. 2 15 The wheel turns = 4.5 times in 135 seconds, so the graph shows 4.5 cycles. 130 30
