# Thread: how to find equation?

2. ## Re: how to find equation?

looks like a basic sine wave with amplitude of 175 and period of 50 ...

$\displaystyle V(x) = 175\sin\left(\frac{\pi x}{25}\right)$

How did you get the period of pi/25??
isn't the period 50?

did you not read the first line in my post?

fyi, $\displaystyle \frac{\pi}{25}$ is not the period ...

I recommend you research the role of the value $\displaystyle B$ in the equation $\displaystyle y = A\sin(Bx)$.

nvm got it, lol, 2pi/50 is B, correct?

how can you convert it to cos?

Pretty simply. $\displaystyle sin(u) = cos\left(\frac{\pi}{2} - u\right)$
