Homework Help: Grade 11 math - HELP!

Posted by Allison on Tuesday, December 21, 2010 at 3:29pm.

Skyscrapers sway in high-wind conditions. in one case, at t=2s, the top floor swayed 30cm to the left (-30cm), and at t=12, the top floor swayed 30 cm to the right (+30cm) of its starting position.

a) what is the equation of a sinusoidal function that describes the motion of the building in terms of time?

b) if a damper is added to this building, it will reduce the sway (not the period) by 70%. what is the equation of the new function that describes the motion of the building in terms of time?
