Applications of Sinusoids, Harmonic Motion

Module Overview

Sinusoidal function, harmonic motion, periodic functions, applications.

TMM 002 PRECALCULUS (Revised March 21, 2017)

1. Functions:

  • 1a. Analyze functions. Routine analysis includes discussion of domain, range, zeros, general function behavior (increasing, decreasing, extrema, etc.), as well as periodic characteristics such as period, frequency, phase shift, and amplitude. In addition to performing rote processes, the student can articulate reasons for choosing a particular process, recognize function families and anticipate behavior, and explain the implementation of a process (e.g., why certain real numbers are excluded from the domain of a given function).*

Section 1: Applications of Sinusoids, Harmonic Motion

In this module we study harmonic motion that can describe the motion of an object suspeded on spring, cyclical motion, response of electronic circuits, etc.
