Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Actually I am confused that how can I : prove that sin in 2nd quadrant is +ve ? That is my basic confusion ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8can u use sin (AB) formula?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No idea. Actually that was just in start and the formula arises later, so I think that there must be an easier method?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sin (90theta) = b/c cos (theta) = b/c and hence sin(90theta) = cos(theta) , got it now? lol jk. Well is this right @hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh yes .. silly me . So, a cartesian plane ?

mathslover

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no, cartesian plane will not work also.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ccw : +ve angle cw : ve angle

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8because lengths will be positive , so ratio will always come out to be positive, hence, maybe cartesian plane won't work

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1searched net now, http://www.mathsisfun.com/algebra/trigfourquadrants.html is that the correct one ?

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8yes, its correct....we could prove it using coordinates.... (cos t,sin t)= (x,y) so sin t is +ve in 2nd quadrant

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0more we practice, more ways we look at things n hence more confusions which ofcourse gives kick ;p
