2 Measuring of Angles (1) Angles are formed by two half-lines starting from a common vertex. One of the half- lines is the starting side of the angle, the other one is the ending side. In this picture the starting side of the angle is blue, and the red line is the ending side. Angles are measured by drawing a circle of radius 1 and with center at the vertex of the angle. The size, in radians, of the angle in question is the length of the black arc of this circle as indicated in the picture. In the above we have assumed that the angle is oriented in such a way that when walking along the black arc from the starting side to the ending side, then the vertex is on our left. Such angles are positive. Starting side Ending side Length of the arc = the size of the angle in radians. Circle of radius 1 Functions/Elementary Functions/Trigonometric Functions by M. Seppälä

3 Measuring of Angles (2) The first picture on the right shows a positive angle. The angle becomes negative if the orientation gets reversed. This is illustrated in the second picture. This definition implies that angles are always between -2 and 2. By allowing angles to rotate more than once around the vertex, one generalizes the concept of angles to angles greater than 2 or smaller than - 2.

4 Areas of Sectors of Disks By the definition of the mathematical constant π, the circumference or the length of a circle of radius r is 2 π r. From this definition it also follows that the area of a disk of radius r is π r 2. Disk of radius r Length of the arc = α r. Area of the sector = Angle of size α radians.

5 1 Trigonometric Functions (1) Definition 1 Consider positive angles α as indicated in the picture. The quantities sin( α ) and cos( α ) are defined by placing the angle α at the origin with starting side on the positive x-axis. The intersection point of the ending side with the circle of radius 1 and with the center at the origin is (cos( α ),sin( α )). This definition applies to positive angles α. We extend that to negative angles by setting sin(– α ) = –sin( α ) and cos(– α ) = cos( α ). Functions/Elementary Functions/Trigonometric Functions by M. Seppälä

6 Trigonometric Functions (2) Definition This basic identity follows directly from the definition. Graphs of: 1.sin(x), the red curve, and 2.cos(x), the blue curve. Functions/Elementary Functions/Trigonometric Functions by M. Seppälä

7 Trigonometric Functions (3) Lemma The size of an angle is measured as the length α of the arc, indicated in the picture, on a circle of radius 1 with center at the vertex. On the other hand, sin( α ) is the length of the red line segment in the picture. The above inequality is obvious by the above picture. For negative angles α the inequality is reversed. For non-negative angles α, sin( α ) α. Functions/Elementary Functions/Trigonometric Functions by M. Seppälä
