Basis of trigonometry: if two right triangles have equal acute angles, they are similar, so their side lengths are proportional. The most familiar trigonometric functions are the sine, cosine, and tangent. More precise definitions are detailed below. Trigonometric functions are commonly defined as ratios of two sides of a right triangle containing the angle, and can equivalently be defined as the lengths of various line segments from a unit circle. In this use, trigonometric functions are used, for instance, in navigation, engineering, and physics. In modern usage, there are six basic trigonometric functions, tabulated here with equations that relate them to one another. Especially with the last four, these relations are often taken as the definitions of those functions, but one can define them equally well geometrically, or by other means, and then derive these relations.
Angles A and B may vary. Bottom: Graph of sine function versus angle. Angles from the top panel are identified. Plot of the six trigonometric functions and the unit circle for an angle of 0.
The notion that there should be some standard correspondence between the lengths of the sides of a triangle and the angles of the triangle comes as soon as one recognizes that similar triangles maintain the same ratios between their sides. To define the trigonometric functions for the angle A, start with any right triangle that contains the angle A. The hypotenuse is always the longest side of a right-angled triangle. They can be extended to the full set of real arguments by using the unit circle, or by requiring certain symmetries and that they be periodic functions. The trigonometric functions are summarized in the following table and described in more detail below. The sine of an angle is the ratio of the length of the opposite side to the length of the hypotenuse.
The word comes from the Latin sinus for gulf or bay, since, given a unit circle, it is the side of the triangle on which the angle opens. An illustration of the relationship between sine and its out-of-phase complement, cosine. These ratios do not depend on the size of the particular right triangle chosen, as long as the focus angle is equal, since all such triangles are similar. OHSAHCOAT” are commonly used trigonometric mnemonics for these ratios. The remaining three functions are best defined using the above three functions, and can be considered their reciprocals. Equivalent to the right-triangle definitions, the trigonometric functions can also be defined in terms of the rise, run, and slope of a line segment relative to horizontal.
The three main trigonometric functions are commonly taught in the order sine, cosine, tangent. Sine is first, rise is first” meaning that Sine takes the angle of the line segment and tells its vertical rise when the length of the line is 1. Cosine is second, run is second” meaning that Cosine takes the angle of the line segment and tells its horizontal run when the length of the line is 1. This shows the main use of tangent and arctangent: converting between the two ways of telling the slant of a line, i. The arctangent or “inverse tangent” is not to be confused with the cotangent, which is cosine divided by sine. To adjust and find the actual rise and run when the line does not have a length of 1, just multiply the sine and cosine by the line length.
In this illustration, the six trigonometric functions of an arbitrary angle θ are represented as Cartesian coordinates of points related to the unit circle. Signs of trigonometric functions in each quadrant. This is a variation on the mnemonic “All Students Take Calculus”. The six trigonometric functions can be defined as Cartesian coordinates of points on the Euclidean plane that are related to the unit circle, which is the circle of radius one centered at the origin. The same is true for the four other trigonometric functions. Such simple expressions generally do not exist for other angles which are rational multiples of a straight angle. For an angle which, measured in degrees, is a multiple of three, the sine and the cosine may be expressed in terms of square roots, as shown below.
These values of the sine and the cosine may thus be constructed by ruler and compass. For an angle of an integer number of degrees, the sine and the cosine may be expressed in terms of square roots and the cube root of a non-real complex number. This results from the fact that the Galois groups of the cyclotomic polynomials are cyclic. For an angle which, measured in degrees, is not a rational number, then either the angle or both the sine and the cosine are transcendental numbers. This is a corollary of Baker’s theorem, proved in 1966.
