    Isolating Variable in Sinusoidal Function

    Basically I'm trying to solve for d in f(x)=a*sin[k(x-d)]+c. I have the values of all the other variables so a simpler way of solving it is fine too.

    Rate of Change in sinusoidal function

    I'm having trouble finding the intervals in which the function A(t) = 0.25sin((Pi/730)t) + 0.55 is descreasing. The restriction on t is 0 <= t <= 2920 - Thanks

    calculus in Sinusoidal Functions

    in a sine wave: v=100sin(200π*t+π/4) 10.7) Using differential calculus, find the value of the greatest voltage rate of change – you have already found when this is and this value of t can be used in the expression for the rate of change that you have also found In a previous question, I found...

    Word problem involving sinusoidal model

    Could someone suggest a good way to solve it? Mine is just too "manual", and I don't like it. The function is: $y=30\sin(\dfrac{2\pi}{20}t)+270$ General principal solutions: $t=\left(\dfrac{\arcsin(\dfrac{1}{3}) 20}{2\pi}\right)+20k, k\in \mathbb{Z}$ $t=1.08173$ General symmetry...

    Find sinusoidal function

    Confused by the answer to C. For C) I got: $x=2\cos(6\pi t)+6$, alternatively: $x=2\sin(6\pi(t-\dfrac{95}{12}))+6$ I guess maybe it has something to do with restricting the domain to $t\geq0$ The answer to B) wasn't given, and so maybe my solution is also wrong...

    Solving for x in a sinusoidal function

    Hello, I have a homework question that asks to solve for x (which is time in seconds) in the sinusoidal function: y=4sin45x + 5, where y = 1 The answer is supposed to be 38, but I get 2 like this: 1 = 4sin45x + 5 -4 =4sin45x -1 =sin45x sin-1(-1) = 45x -90 = 45x x=-2 What have I done...

    So Lost ? Derivative of Exponential and Trig Functions.

    If y=Acos(kt)+Bsin(kt) , where A, B and k are constants, show that d^2y/dx^2+K^2y=0 I just have no idea where to go with the question. Help would really be appreciated :)

    Sinusoidal derivative

    Please help solving this. If y= sin^3(4pix), show what d^2y/dx^2 - 3pi^2y will equal. If you were given what the expression equal, could you prove the equality? To see the equations (as i couldn't type them properly), look at the picture at question 6. Thanks.

    Period of a Sinusoidal Function

    ... At t= 1 the chair is closest to the wall and d(1) = 18cm . At t = 1.75s the chair is farthest from the wall and d (1.75) = 34cm. What is the period? Is it 0.75s ? because the back of the book says 1.5s!
