f1 = -5sin (2*pi*t) - sin wave part

f2 = 21.74t-32.61 - straight line part

f3 = 0 - horizontal straight line part

I have worked out A0 using MATLAB and then manually to check the answer.

My problem is that I need to pick a certain harmonic to work out manually to check the MATLAB answer with, i picked the 2nd harmonic.

To work out A2 i get the equations:

1/pi (-5sin(2*pi*t)cos(4*pi*t)) when 0.73 < t < 1.27

1/pi (21.74t*cos(4*pi*t)-32.61cos(4*pi*t)) when 1.27 < t < 1.5

Can anyone help with what im supposed to do next?

Thanks
