Sine and Cosine Graphs

Definition: Key Points

Key points can be used to plot the graph of a function. In drawing the graph of a function, function choose key points that correspond to the: maximum values of a function minimum values of a function x-intercepts of a function (an x-intercept is a point at which the value of a function is equal to zero)

Definition: Amplitude

Amplitude ­ One-half of the vertical distance between the maxima and minima of a sine or cosine graph.

y = a sin x

x 2|a|

y = a cos x

x 2|a|

9/42

Identifying the Amplitude

The general forms of the sine and cosine functions are: y = d + a sin(bx ­ c) y = d + a cos(bx ­ c)

a, b, c, and d are constants (numbers whose values do not change).

The absolute value of "a" is the amplitude of the function.

Solution: Vertical distance between the max and min: 3 ­ (-3) = 3 + 3 = 6 Amplitude: |a| = 6/2 = 3 Equation: y = 3 sin x

Identifying the Period

Fundamental Period ­ The smallest interval over which a periodic function repeats itself. y = d + a sin(bx ­ c) y = d + a cos(bx ­ c)

The constant "b" is directly related to the period of sine and cosine. period = 2 b

The period of a tangent or cotangent function is /b.

The amplitude is determined by |a| in the general form equations of sine and cosine.
