    Proving slope m of a secant connecting two points of the sine curve

    than its simply cosXo if I multiply it with the limit of 1st one :1 than the limit of m approaches cosXo?

    Proving slope m of a secant connecting two points of the sine curve

    oooh if x-->Xo therefore is it (cos(2*Xo))/2?

    Proving slope m of a secant connecting two points of the sine curve

    Im getting a lost a little bit, is it actually approaches zero?

    Proving slope m of a secant connecting two points of the sine curve

    I see what you mean, that (2) is in radian and not degrees, thus the answer to the original question is (cos(Xo))/2 right?

    Proving slope m of a secant connecting two points of the sine curve

    But don't you need to take the cosine of two?

    Proving slope m of a secant connecting two points of the sine curve

    Im doing the (b) part of the exercise, which ask about what do they approach as X approaches Xo (their limits) 1)sin((X-Xo)/2)/((X-Xo)/2) 2)cos ((X+Xo)/2) 3)m(=sin((X-Xo)/2)/((X-Xo)/2) * cos ((X+Xo)/2) Note: Xo an X are points on the cos,sin curve which is not bigger than pi/2 I was able to...

    Proving slope m of a secant connecting two points of the sine curve

    oohhh, i found the formula in my exercise book, it was really that standard thank you for your help, now I am doing the (b) part of the exercise about their limits May I ask for your help if i get stuck?

    Proving slope m of a secant connecting two points of the sine curve

    Proving slope "m" of a secant connecting two points of the sine curve Homework Statement Write and expression for the slope m of the secant connecting the points Po(Xo,Yo) and P(X,Y) of the sine curve. Use the appropriate trigonometric identity to show that m= sin((X-Xo)/2)/((X-Xo)/2) * cos...

    Cos/sin rule

    i got the answer for 2) (its about 19.2min), does anyone have some hint for the 1st one?

    Cos/sin rule

    for 3) of course i drew a picture, i could only get as far as the slope+tower all together is 25.37m, maybe i misdrew the picture or just couldn't continue from the answer (25.37) i got and 2) i used your hint and calculated out the height/distance ration, i tried to substitue it into the sin...

    Cos/sin rule

    Hey guys, We've been learning cos/sin rule since the 1st of school, and i really had difficulties with the following exercises, I've been working them yesterday for 2-3 hours and could only manage to do part of it... 1. IN Quadrilateral ABCD, AB=7 cm, BC= 8cm, CD=5cm and angle ABC=52...

    Exercesie about force with friction

    appreciate for your help, I've thought about this idea before but I got a result of 0,096N and I believed that it can't be, but after your explanation I see the whole thing thx for your help

    Exercesie about force with friction

    here is the task: A ship whose mass is 2.0 X 10(to the seventh) kg rests on launching ways that slope down to the water at an angle of 6 degrees. The ways are greased to reduce the coefficient of kinetic friction to 0.11 . Will the ship slid e down the ways into the water by itself? If not, find...
