posted by .

Can someone show me how to get the period for the following equation using radian mode in the calculator?:




d(t) = 2.5 sin0.166 pi (t - 1.5) + 13.4

Answer - 12.2

  • Math - What is the period? -

    The variable following the sine function tells you the frequency f. Forget the -1.5 term -- that is just a phase angle.

    2 pi f t = 0.166 pi t
    (When f*t incresaes by 1, the phase changes by 2 pi)
    Therefore 2f = 0.166
    f = 0.083 s^-1
    P = 1/f = 1/0.083 = 12.0 s
