CHAPTER 4: TRIGONOMETRIC ii) Radian Measurement

4.1 INTRODUCTION OF TRIGONOMETRY The radian is another basic unit of angle


FUNCTIONS measure. To define a radian we need to
define the concept of a central angle.
MEASUREMENT OF THE ANGLE A central angle of a circle is an angle whose
vertex is the center of the circle
i) Degree Measurement

The size of an angle can be measured by using


degree unit
The angle formed by a complete
counterclockwise revolution has a measure of
360

1
Thus 1 = of a complete revolution
360
By Definition
In the degree system for angle measurement, One radian is the measure of the central angle
of a circle where the sides of the angle
# each degree is divided into 60 parts called intercept an arc equal in length to the radius
minute 1 = 60 of the circle.
# each minute is divided into 60 parts called
second 1 = 60 is an angle of measure 1 radian

We can convert the degree-minute-second to The circumference of a circle is given by


decimal form and otherwise. C = 2r
and each arc of length r determines an angle
of one radian and there are 2 r / r = 2
radians in one complete revolution
If 1 = 60 and 1 = 60 then 1 = 3600
Thus:

Example:

1. Convert from D-M-S form to decimal form



12 36
7312 '36" = 73 + +
60 3600
= 73 + 0.2 + 0.01 The two basic relationships between degree
and radian measure are:
= 73.21

Convert from decimal form to D-M-S form

73.21 = 73 + 0.21 ( 60')


= 73 + 12.6'
= 73 + 12'+ 0.6 ( 60")
= 73 + 12'+ 36"
= 7312'36"

In the figure below, we indicate some Trigonometric Functions of An Angle


terminology that is commonly used in line of sight
problems. The angles are measured with
reference to a horizontal line

If the object being sighted is above the


observer, then the angle formed by the
line of sight and the horizontal line is called
an angle of elevation.
If the object being sighted is below the
observer, then the angle formed by the
line of sight and the horizontal line is called
an angle of depression
The table below summarizes the trigonometric
functional values of some special angles

Example:

A tree is located on the opposite side of a pond


from point A and B. From point B, the angle of Coterminal angles
elevation to the top of the tree is 35o. From point
A, the angle of elevation to the top of the tree is We consider the figure below
25o. If points A and B are 30 meters apart, find the
height of the tree to the nearest tenth of a meter.

Different angles can have the same initial and


terminal sides (but the amount of rotation is
different)

Any two such angles are called COTERMINAL

Solution:
The concept of a reference angle can be defined
as follows (a)

(b)

sin 216o = -sin (216o 180o) = - sin 36o

= - 0.5878

cos 216o = - cos (216o-180o) = - cos 36o
