In life, we find various changes that create waves. A wave is a pattern or variation which moves or spread through a medium. Examples of waves include sound waves, light waves and water waves.
There are various types of equations. These include linear quadratic and cubic equations among others. There are equations that connect variables which involves trigonometric values.
E.g. y = sinxO, y=2cosxO and so on.
These equations can be used to draw trigonometric graphs. To draw a trigonometric graph, it is important to make a table of values of the angles and their corresponding trigonometric ratios.
In this topic we will learn how to draw and use trigonometric graphs, to solve trigonometric equations.
Graphs of trigonometric ratios
There are various forms of trigonometric equations that emanate from original equations such as; y = sinx, y = cosx and y = tan x
Examples include y = a sinxO, y=a cos xO and y = a cos (bxO + F).In this section, we will draw the graphs of the functions;
Y = a sinxo
Y = a cosbxO
Y=a cos (bxO+ 0)Then use them, to deduce the amplitude, period, wavelength and phase angle.
Example 1
Draw the graph of y = 2sin xo for 180o n xo n180o and deduce the amplitude, period and wavelength.
Solution
Table of values of y = 2 sin xo
Note that the graph has the shape of a wave. It can be referred to as a sign wave.
The amplitude of a trigonometric wave is the maximum displacement or height of the wave above or below the xaxis. In this case the amplitude is 2.
The period of aware is the cycle within which the wave starts to repeat itself. The cycle in this graph occur after 360o. From point A the wave starts to repeat itself at point B. Therefore the period of the wave is 360oor 2P radians.
The wavelength is the distance between two consecutive corresponding points on a wave. It can be obtained easily by finding the distance from one point at the top of a wave to the next top point. In this case the wavelength is 4cm.Example 2
Draw the graphs of the function. y = 3 cos2xo and y = 3cos (2x + 60o) on the same axes for 180o n xon + 180o and deduce the amplitude, wavelength, period and phase angle.
Solution
Table of values for y = 3cos 2xo
Table of values for y = 3cos (2x + 60o)
Amplitude is 3
Wavelength is 6cm
Period is 180o
Phase angle is 30o ie the wave moves 30o in the negative direction of x axis.Note: The equation y = 3cos 2x + 60o can be rewritten as y = 3cos 2 (x +30o)
The angle 30oobtained inside the brackets when 2 is factored out.
When the angle inside the brackets is +FO,wave moves FOin the negative direction of x  axis and therefore the phase angle is  FO.Example 3
