[SOLVED] Transformation of graph question.
I am supposed to figure out which each of the variables in:
y = A sin[B(x-c)] + D and
y = A cos[B(x-c)] + D
I am supposed to figure out what effect the variables have on the equation.
I was told there is a slight difference in the effect on cos and sin. I have been graphing things on the calc but having hard time figuring it out.
Variables affect sin and cos
The best way to see this is to use a graphing calculator and change the values.
A will affect the amplitude of the wave.
B will affect the frequency of the wave.
C will shift the wave horizontally
D will shift the wave vertically.
Experiment with it and you will see what I mean.
