Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The arcs in the photo (will give later on below) to the right appear to be paths of stars rotating about the North Star. To produce this effect, the photographer set a camera on a tripod and left the shutter open for a long time. If the photographer left the shutter open for a full 24 hours, each arc would be a complete circle. You can model a star’s“rotation” in a coordinate plane. Place the North Star at the origin.Let P(1, 0) be the position of the star at the moment the camera’s shutter opens.Suppose the shutter is left open for 2 hours and 40 min. (1)Find the angle of rotation that maps point P on to P’ (2)What are the x and y coordinates of point P’ to the nearest thousandths? (3) Determine a translation rule that maps point P onto P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I thought that's what I was doing above. Above, I did part A. You just need to convert the numerator and denominator to the same units and do the calculations. What do you get for part A?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For part B, use a right triangle with hypotenuse 1 unit long with an angle of 40 degrees. Then find the lengths of the adjacent and opposite legs. They are the x and ycoordinates.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To map by translation, you define a translation operator and add the difference of the respective coordinates. For example, from A(2,4) to A'(7,3) the translation operator is \(t_{x,y}=(x+5, y1)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ah well, there's two ways you can do this really. The easy way  or the one that you are likely intended to follow  would involve using a bit of trigonometry. If what I understood from the problem is correct, here is the following situation: dw:1439767293119:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That is what the guy meant by with "make a right angled triangle out of it".

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The idea now is that you have a right angled triangle with the hypotenuse of 1 and an angle of 40 degrees. The side opposing the 40 degree angle is the y coordinate of the point  the other side is the x coordinate of the point. To find the coordinates we must use sin and cos. Remember how sin and cos are defines as in right angled triangles: sin(angle) = side opposing the angle / the hypotenuse cos(angle) = other side to the angle / the hypotenuse Since you are allowed to use a calculator, we already know what sin(40) and cos(40) is and since the radius and the hypotenuse are one and the same (and equals 1 just like in the unit circle)  the sides are all a matter of multiplication now.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sin (40) = side opposing the angle / the hypotenuse = y_P' / 1 Therefore, y_P' = sin(40) * 1 Similarly, x_P' = cos(40) * 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The second method (which spares you all of this trouble) involves using the notion of polar coordinates.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Long story short  what you are using now is the Cartezian system of coordinates  every point in space has a position defined by two coordinates: and X and an Y so to speak. While this system is great for many things when you're dealing with lines, triangles, rectangles and so forth  it fails miserably when it comes to circles.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0As you will probably notice from your calculations, you will end up with P' having reaaaaaaally nasty coordinates over the X and the Y axis (hence why the "round it up to the nearest whatever").

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Instead  the better alternative in mathematics would be to use "polar coordinates". With polar coordinates, we no longer define the position of a point in space through 2 coordinates on the X and Y axis respectively (in terms of origin) but instead define the position of a point in space according to radius of the circle and the angle it forms as that point "travels" on the circle in a trigonometric way, starting from the right side at (1,0) in Cartezian coordinates or (1,0 degrees) in Polar coordinates.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now, why am I telling you this

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There is a simple way (it's easy to prove but take my word for it) to convert something from Cartezian coordinates into Polar coordinates. x= radius * cos(angle) y = radius * sin(angle) So basically, in your problem you have the Polar coordinates ( radius + sin/cos of angle) and you need your Cartezian coordinates (the x and the y from the formula above). If you want to impress your teacher simply write: "We express the Cartezian coordinates of P' as Polar coordinates in a circle with a radius of 1 and the angle of 40 degrees. x= radius * cos(angle) y = radius * sin(angle)" Done.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In depth description of polar coordinates here : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polar_coordinate_system But it is a tad bit more complex than what I just wrote. A similar system is used for spheres and such in 3D space called "spherical coordinates" but it will fry your brains out.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@AngusV wait @.@ I kinda confuse a little bit: let me rewrite this: so: 1 +cos 40= 1,766 (y) 1 + sin 40= 1,643 (x) that's it?
