**Question description**

Real-world Applications of Trigonometric Functions

Search the Web, course textbooks, or other sources to find two sinusoidal equations that model real-world phenomena. (Do not use riding a Ferris Wheel)

Write a description for each equation. For each example, address the following questions:

• What natural phenomenon does the equation model?

• What aspect of the natural phenomenon involves data that repeats after a given period of time?

Then use the equation to write a problem.

Solve the problem and explain the answer in the context of the original problem.
