i don't even know how to approach this question

Original post by mqb2766

Just think about the sin function.

Its worth noting its in degrees.

•

50 the max height so ...

•

the wheel starts turning when t=0 so ...

•

One cycle takes 720s so ...

i get what you're saying but how am I mean to know like which bit is what like what even is A

It multplies/scales the output of the sin function. Really the question is asking about simple transformations, so A scales sin, b scales t and alpha is a translation (of bt)

so then because the maximum is 50 would A be 50 because the maximum of sin is 1

then to work out b and a is it something to do with 360 because that's one sin graph

Yes for A. Right idea for b, but you need to note that its the absolute value of sin as its

|Asin()|

so what is the period of that, and what must b be? The translation alpha is determined by the initial value as sin(0) = 0.

oh so its 180 bc its not including negative values so the transformation from 180 to 720 is x4 so b would be 1/4 and then I can make H= 0 and use A and b to work out a

For alpha (the simplest way), it would be when t=0 as that is the fact youre given. Then you dont need b (its the second fact) to work out alpha, you only need A (first fact).

and make H=1?

Original post by esha06

and make H=1?

Yes, the fact says (t,H) = (0,1)

Original post by mqb2766

Yes, the fact says (t,H) = (0,1)

Right, thank you!!
