1.Trigonometric Functions



Every right-angled triangle contains two acute angles.
With respect to each of these angles, there are six
functions, called trigonometric functions, each involving
the lengths of two of the sides of the triangle.
Consider the following triangle ABC

a
C

A
AC is the side adjacent to angle a, BC is the side opposite to
angle a.
Similarly, BC is the side adjacent to angle b, AC is the side
opposite to angle b.


Each degree is divided into 60 minutes
Each minute is divided into 60 seconds


A unit circle has a circumference of 2
One complete rotation measures 2  radian
Angle of 360 = 2 radian

•Simple trigonometric equations
Notation :

If sin  = k then  = sin-1k (sin-1 is written as inv sin or
arcsin). Similar scheme is applied to cos and tan.
e.g. Without using a calculator, solve sin  =  0.5, where
0o    360o
e.g. Solve cos 2 =  0.4 ,where 0    2
