CARTESIAN PLANE

DISTANCE FORMULA
The distance between two
points,
(x1, y1) and (x2, y2),
is given by the formula

MIDPOINT FORMULA
The midpoint between two
points,
(x1, y1) and (x2, y2)
is given by the formula:

UNIT CIRCLE
a circle in the Cartesian
plane whose center is the
origin, (0,0), and whose

ANGLES
An angle is in its standard
position if its vertex is located
at the origin and one ray is on
the positive x-axis.

REFERENCE ANGLE
smallest angle that the
terminal side of a given
angle makes with the xaxis. Reference angles are
less than 90 degrees

COTERMINAL ANGLES
two angles are coterminal if
they have the same position in
the Cartesian plane

DECIMAL DEGREES
DECIMAL MINUTES SECONDS
1= 60 (minutes) = 3600
(seconds)
1/60= 1 (minute)
1/3600= 1 (second)

Vise versa

EXAMPLE:

Degree x
180

EXAMPLE:

CENTRAL ANGLE
Central Angle= (s/r)
s=length of arc

ANGULAR SPEED
the distance travelled by
the body in terms of
rotations or revolutions to
the time taken

## ANGULAR SPEED (COMPLETE

ROATATION)

2= 360 degrees or
one complete
rotation/revolution
The relation between Linear
speed and Angular speed is

EXAMPLE:

## Earth takes 365 days to

complete a revolution around the sun.
Calculate its Angular speed?
Question 1:

Solution:

## Angular Speed is given by = D/T

Where D = Rotational distance
traveled = 2 and
T = 365 24 60 60
= 31536000 S.
Angular Speed () = 2/31536000
=

EXAMPLE:
Question2:
The wheel of bullock cart of radius 1m
is moving with the speed of 5m per
second. Calculate its Angular speed.
Solution:

## Given: Linear speed V = 5m/s,

Radius of Circular path r = 1m
The Angular Speed=V/r

=(5m/s)/1m

LINEAR SPEED

## speed with which the body moves in the linear path. In

simple words, it is the distance traveled for linear path in
given time

ws == angular
distancespeed
rt == raidus
time

EXAMPLE:

## A ferris wheel with a radius

of 15 in has 3 revolutions per second.
Convert to miles per hour.
Question 1:

Solution:

EXAMPLE:

## A ferris wheel with a radius

of 10 ft makes 6 revolutions in 1 sec.
Convert to inches per min.
Question 2:

Solution:

Asector=1(r2 )
2

Asegment=Asec=A

Arc Length= r

TRIGONOMETRIC FUNCTIONS

## r= distance of (x,y) from the origin

r=(x2+y2)

sin =y/r
tan =y/x
sec = r/x (x 0)
cos =x/r
csc =r/y (y 0) cot = x/y (y 0)
