rcos() form

Adding a sine and a cosine will generate a cosine curve. This will have a larger amplitude than the original and is out of phase with it.

Writing the expression as rcos(θ - α), 'r' amplitude 'α' no. degrees phase difference(to the right)

Thus expressions of the form:

can be rewritten as
