Consider the arc of length s on the unit circle that begins at the point (1, 0) and ends at the
point (−0.4898, −0.7864). Find csc s, sec s, cot s.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
In general the coordinates of a point P on a unit circle are given by
( cos θ. sin θ) where θ is the angle at the center from (1, 0) to the point P measured in radians (anticlockwise)
Since the point P is (−0.4898, −0.7864)
we conclude that cos θ. = −0.4898 and sin θ = −0.7864
From these, we can find the other ratios:
csc θ = 1/sin θ
sec θ = 1/cos θ
and cot θ = cos θ/sin θ
= −0.4898/ −0.7864
