Angles and Degree Measure

An angle has three parts: an initial ray, a terminal ray, and a vertex (the point of intersection of the two rays), as shown in Figure D.24. An angle is in standard position if its initial ray coincides with the positive x-axis and its vertex is at the origin. It is assumed that you are familiar with the degree measure of an angle.* It is common practice to use (the Greek lowercase theta) to represent both an angle and its measure. Angles between 0 and 90 are acute, and angles between 90 and 180 are obtuse. Positive angles are measured counterclockwise, and negative angles are measured clockwise. For instance, Figure D.25 shows an angle whose measure is 45 . You cannot assign a measure to an angle by simply knowing where its initial and terminal rays are located. To measure an angle, you must also know how the terminal ray was revolved. For example, Figure D.25 shows that the angle measuring 45 has the same terminal ray as the angle measuring 315 . Such angles are coterminal. In general, if is any angle, then n 360 , n is a nonzero integer

is coterminal with . An angle that is larger than 360 is one whose terminal ray has been revolved more than one full revolution counterclockwise, as shown in Figure D.26. You can form an angle whose measure is less than 360 by revolving a terminal ray more than one full revolution clockwise.

Radian Measure

To assign a radian measure to an angle , consider to be a central angle of a circle of radius 1, as shown in Figure D.27. The radian measure of is then defined to be the length of the arc of the sector. Because the circumference of a circle is 2 r, the circumference of a unit circle (of radius 1) is 2 . This implies that the radian 2 radians. measure of an angle measuring 360 is 2 . In other words, 360 Using radian measure for , the length s of a circular arc of radius r is s r , as shown in Figure D.28.

The arc length of the sector is the radian measure of . Arc length is s = r .

You should know the conversions of the common angles shown in Figure D.29. For other angles, use the fact that 180 is equal to radians.

45° = 4

60° = 3

90° = 2

There are two common approaches to the study of trigonometry. In one, the trigonometric functions are defined as ratios of two sides of a right triangle. In the other, these functions are defined in terms of a point on the terminal side of an angle in standard position. The six trigonometric functions, sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent, secant, and cosecant (abbreviated as sin, cos, etc.), are defined below from both viewpoints.

Evaluating Trigonometric Functions

There are two ways to evaluate trigonometric functions: (1) decimal approximations with a calculator and (2) exact evaluations using trigonometric identities and formulas from geometry. When using a calculator toevaluate a trigonometric function, remember to set the calculator to the appropriate mode--degree mode or radian mode. EXAMPLE 2

The quadrant signs for the sine, cosine, and tangent functions are shown in Figure D.34. To extend the use of the table on the preceding page to angles in quadrants other than the first quadrant, you can use the concept of a reference angle (see Figure D.35), with the appropriate quadrant sign. For instance, the reference angle for 3 4 is 4, and because the sine is positive in Quadrant II, you can write sin 3 4 sin 4 2 . 2

Quadrant III sin : - cos : - tan : +

Quadrant IV sin : - cos : + tan : -

Similarly, because the reference angle for 330 is 30 , and the tangent is negative in Quadrant IV, you can write tan 330 tan 30 3 . 3

Note in Figure D.37 that the maximum value of sin x and cos x is 1 and the minimum value is 1. The graphs of the functions y a sin bx and y a cos bx oscillate between a and a, and so have an amplitude of a . Furthermore, because bx 0 when x 0 and bx 2 when x 2 b, it follows that the functions y a sin bx and y a cos bx each have a period of 2 b .
