  1. when t = 0, argument of cos = pi
    when does it equal pi + 2 pi?

    when 6 pi t = 2 pi
    or T = (1/3) second
    or f = 1/T = 3 Hz

    amplitude is 2 of course

    phase = -pi or however your book defines phase

    2 cos (6*pi*.27 + pi)
    2 cos (8.23 radians)
    2 cos (471.6 degrees) because I am too lazy to convert calculator to radians
    = -.717 meters
