A windmill has its center at (0, 0). Its blades make a complete rotation every 40 seconds. If the tip of one blade is positioned at (5, 6), after 30 seconds where is the tip of the blade located?

do you know how to determine the equation of a circle given the center point and a point on the circle?
DanJS
  • DanJS
the general form for a circle is (x-h)^2 + (y-k)^2 = r^2 (h,k) is the center point, and r is the radius
DanJS
  • DanJS
centered at the origin , and the radius is the distance from (0,0) to (5,6) right?

actually, here is a simple way to see the solution ....

  • DanJS
since the angle of rotation is a nice one, it makes it pretty simple
DanJS
  • DanJS
you understand the picture?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so would the answer be( -6,5)
DanJS
  • DanJS
almost, since it travels 30/40 of the way around, or 270 degrees, you end here...
anonymous
  • anonymous
(6-5)
DanJS
  • DanJS
sorry, you start moving at angle A, not at angle zero, let me redo that
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay
DanJS
  • DanJS
|dw:1443252011827:dw|
DanJS
  • DanJS
the overall angle after moving is 270 plus the initial angle A
DanJS
  • DanJS
the whole circle totals 360, so you can show that the remaining distance to the + x axis is 90 - A

So would it be (5-6)?
anonymous
  • anonymous
(5,-6)

sorry this is still confusing for me _-.-

the tangent of an angle in a right triangle is the side opposite divided by the adjacent side...remember that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
DanJS
  • DanJS
|dw:1443253028067:dw|
DanJS
  • DanJS
tangent of angle A is 5/6
DanJS
  • DanJS
you can see the tan(angle) = y/x from that draw a vertical line from the point to the x axis, forms a right triangle
DanJS
  • DanJS
th eside lengths of the triangle are the components of the coordinate (5,6)
DanJS
  • DanJS
|dw:1443253419214:dw|
DanJS
  • DanJS
Basically you have two unknown values you need to find, the x and the y of that point. To do that you need to equations that relate x and y. This tangent is one way then i will use the circle equation
DanJS
  • DanJS
again, the tan(angle) = opposite /adjacent = y / x Angle A tan(A) = 6/5, so A = tan^(-1)(6/5) = 50.2 so (90 - A) = 39.8
DanJS
  • DanJS
now the triangle ending on the point (x,y) Tan(90-A) = Tan(39.8056) = 0.833333333... = y/x that is the first relationship for x and y, since that is a rational decimal we can actually just finish it with this one equation... 0.8333333333.. = y/x any rational number can be converted to a ratio a/b or in this case x / y
DanJS
  • DanJS
Convert 0.83333.... to a fraction. let - s = 0.83333... so, 10s = 8.3333.... and 100s = 83.3333... ---------------------------- 100s - 10s = 83.3333... - 8.3333... 90s = 83 - 8 90s = 75 s = 75/90 or 5/6 0.833333333 = 5/6 = y/x y = 5 and x = 6 the point is (x , y) = (6 , 5)
DanJS
  • DanJS
keep in mind that those are the lengths of the side of the triangle, the x value is still +6, but the y value is negative there, y=-5 point with respect to xy-axis (x,y) = (6 , -5)
DanJS
  • DanJS
if you had to, you could use a second equation with x and y unknown, the circle centered at origin, and radius is distance from origin to the given point \[r = \sqrt{5^2+6^2} = \sqrt{61}\] x^2 + y^2 = r^2 --(circle centered at the origin) \[x^2 + y^2 = [\sqrt{61}]^2 = 61\] Two equations and two unknown values x and y, you can solve it x^2 + y^2 = r^2 and tan(Angle) = y/x solvable for x and y with a known Angle
