Homework Help: Math

Posted by Lisa on Monday, October 9, 2006 at 5:53pm.

1)A piano tuner uses a tuning fork. If middle C has a frequency of 264 vibrations per second, write an equation in the form d=sinw(t) for the simple harmonic motion.

2) Verify the identity
tan^2X-cot^2X/tanX+cotX=tanX-cotX


I'm not completely sure on the first one, but I think it looks like
d=sin(264*t) Check your text for a worked example.
The second one is algebra.
[(tanX)^2-(cotX)^2]/[tanX+cotX]=tanX-cotX
or
[(tanX-cotX)(tanX+cotX)]/[tanX+cotX]=tanX-cotX
Can you finish it?
