We measure sound according to its pitch and loudness, which are attributes associated with the frequency and amplitude of sound waves. As we shall see, it is the branch of mathematics called trigonometry that enables us to analyze waves of all kinds; indeed, that is only one application of this powerful analytical tool. See page 393 for an application of trigonometry to sound waves. 4.6 Graphs of Composite Trigonometric Functions 4.7 Inverse Trigonometric Functions 4.8 Solving Problems with Trigonometry 319

2 320 CHAPTER 4 Trigonometric Functions Hipparchus of Nicaea ( BCE) Hipparchus of Nicaea, the father of trigonometry, compiled the first trigonometric tables to simplify the study of astronomy more than 2000 years ago. Today, that same mathematics enables us to store sound waves digitally on a compact disc. Hipparchus wrote during the second century bce, but he was not the first mathematician to do trigonometry. Greek mathematicians like Hippocrates of Chois ( bce) and Eratosthenes of Cyrene ( bce) had paved the way for using triangle ratios in astronomy, and those same triangle ratios had been used by Egyptian and Babylonian engineers at least 4000 years earlier. The term trigonometry itself emerged in the 16th century, although it derives from ancient Greek roots: tri (three), gonos (side), and metros (measure). Chapter 4 Overview The trigonometric functions arose from the consideration of ratios within right triangles, the ultimate computational tool for engineers in the ancient world. As the great mysteries of civilization progressed from a flat Earth to a world of circles and spheres, trigonometry was soon seen to be the secret to understanding circular phenomena as well. Then circular motion led to harmonic motion and waves, and suddenly trigonometry was the indispensable tool for understanding everything from electrical current to modern telecommunications. The advent of calculus made the trigonometric functions more important than ever. It turns out that every kind of periodic (recurring) behavior can be modeled to any degree of accuracy by simply combining sine functions. The modeling aspect of trigonometric functions is another focus of our study. 4.1 Angles and Their Measures What you ll learn about The Problem of Angular Measure Degrees and Radians Circular Arc Length Angular and Linear Motion... and why Angles are the domain elements of the trigonometric functions. Why 360? The idea of dividing a circle into 360 equal pieces dates back to the sexagesimal (60-based) counting system of the ancient Sumerians. The appeal of 60 was that it was evenly divisible by so many numbers (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, and 30). Early astronomical calculations wedded the sexagesimal system to circles, and the rest is history. θ h (a) s FIGURE 4.1 The pictures that motivated trigonometry. θ h (b) s a The Problem of Angular Measure The input variable in a trigonometric function is an angle measure; the output is a real number. Believe it or not, this poses an immediate problem for us if we choose to measure our angles in degrees (as most of us did in our geometry courses). The problem is that degree units have no mathematical relationship whatsoever to linear units. There are 360 degrees in a circle of radius 1. What relationship does the 360 have to the 1? In what sense is it 360 times as big? Answering these questions isn t possible, because a degree is another unit altogether. Consider the diagrams in Figure 4.1. The ratio of s to h in the right triangle in Figure 4.1a is independent of the size of the triangle. (You may recall this fact about similar triangles from geometry.) This valuable insight enabled early engineers to compute triangle ratios on a small scale before applying them to much larger projects. That was (and still is) trigonometry in its most basic form. For astronomers tracking celestial motion, however, the extended diagram in Figure 4.1b was more interesting. In this picture, s is half a chord in a circle of radius h, and u is a central angle of the circle intercepting a circular arc of length a. If u were 40, we might call a a 40-degree arc because of its direct association with the central angle u, but notice that a also has a length that can be measured in the same units as the other lengths in the picture. Over time it became natural to think of the angle being determined by the arc rather than the arc being determined by the angle, and that led to radian measure. Degrees and Radians A degree, represented by the symbol, is a unit of angular measure equal to 1/180th of a straight angle. In the DMS (degree-minute-second) system of angular measure, each degree is subdivided into 60 minutes (denoted by ) and each minute is subdivided into 60 seconds (denoted by ). (Notice that Sumerian influence again.) Example 1 illustrates how to convert from degrees in decimal form to DMS and vice versa.

6 324 CHAPTER 4 Trigonometric Functions A nautical mile (naut mi) is the length of 1 minute of arc along Earth s equator. Figure 4.6 shows, though not to scale, a central angle AOB of Earth that measures 1/60 of a degree. It intercepts an arc 1 naut mi long. The arc length formula allows us to convert between nautical miles and statute miles (stat mi), the familiar land mile of 5280 ft. B Nautical mile A O FIGURE 4.6 Although Earth is not a perfect sphere, its diameter is, on average, stat mi. A nautical mile is 1 of Earth s circumference at the equator. EXAMPLE 6 Converting to Nautical Miles Megan McCarty, a pilot for Western Airlines, frequently pilots flights from Boston to San Francisco, a distance of 2698 stat mi. Captain McCarty s calculations of flight time are based on nautical miles. How many nautical miles is it from Boston to San Francisco? SOLUTION The radius of the Earth at the equator is approximately 3956 stat mi. Convert 1 minute to radians: 1 = a 1 60 b * p rad 180 = p 10,800 rad. Now we can apply the formula s = ru: p 1 naut mi = a b stat mi 10, stat mi 1 stat mi = a 10,800 b naut mi 3956p 0.87 naut mi The distance from Boston to San Francisco is 2698 stat mi = 2698 # 10, naut mi. 3956p Now try Exercise 51.
