find the maximum value of √3 cosθ-sinθ.???

  • mathematics - ,

    You get a maximum when the derivative is zero.

    -ã3 sin ƒÆ -cos ƒÆ = 0
    tan ƒÆ = -1/ã3

    Į = -30 degrees

    ã3 cosƒÆ-sinƒÆ = 3/2 + 1/2 = 2

    check: If theta = -29 degrees,
    ã3 cosƒÆ-sinƒÆ = 1.5149 + 0.4848 = 1.9997
    If theta = -31 degrees,
    ã3 cosƒÆ-sinƒÆ = 1.4847 + 0.5150 = 1.9997
    So it looks like the maximum is 2.
