slope of PO= y/x slope of PN = y/(x-12) For segments to be perpendicular their slopes must be negative recipricols Thus, -x/y=y/(x-12) y^2+x(x-12)=0 Distribute the x, complete the square, and then you'll have the equation of a circle.

T is period so you have frequency and period backwards

**physics**

nevermind I thought it said that it began at its highest point. Since they didn't specify any initial conditions you're free to use either sin or cosine with no phase shift.

*March 21, 2012*

**physics**

It doesn't make a difference as long as your value for when t = 0 is correct since sin is just cosine phase shifted by pi/2. Cosine is probably easier in this case because then you wont need to do a shift.
