Homework Help: Application prob. for Trig.

Posted by Anonymous on Monday, April 30, 2012 at 1:19pm.

Hi,
A fountain in a shopping centre has a single jet of water. The height of the jet of water varies according to a sinusoidal function. A student notes that, in exactly one minute, the jet goes from a minimum height of 2m to a maximum height of 6m and back to 2m.

At 13:00, the jet of water is at a height of 2m.
What will be the height of the jet of water, to the nearest tenth of a metre, when the clock reads 13:12:40? (13hr, 12min, 40sec). Thanks a lot!
