What is the study of relationships between the angles and sides of triangles called?

Trigonometry

What is the reciprocal of the secant function?

Cosecant

Which trigonometric function is always positive in the first quadrant?

Sine

What is the ratio of the side opposite the given angle to the hypotenuse in a right-angled triangle?

Sine

What is the mathematical representation of the sine function for an angle θ in a right-angled triangle?

\sin(\theta) = \frac{{\text{opposite side}}}{{\text{hypotenuse}}}

How does the sine function vary as the angle in a right-angled triangle changes?

The sine function oscillates between -1 and 1 as the angle varies.

In what fields does trigonometry find wide-ranging applications?

Physics, engineering, and astronomy

Why is the sine function invaluable in modeling natural phenomena such as sound waves and alternating current?

Due to its periodic nature and the ability to oscillate between -1 and 1

What is the fundamental relationship that the sine function establishes in a right-angled triangle?

The ratio of the length of the side opposite the angle to the length of the hypotenuse

What is the cosine of an angle in a right-angled triangle?

The ratio of the length of the side adjacent to the angle to the length of the hypotenuse

How does the cosine function vary as the angle changes?

It oscillates between -1 and 1

When is the cosine rule particularly useful in solving triangles?

For finding the unknown sides or angles of a triangle when the other elements are known

What does the tangent of an angle in a right-angled triangle represent?

The ratio of the length of the side opposite the angle to the length of the side adjacent to the angle

In what scenarios is solving triangles crucial in real-world applications?

Navigation, surveying, and architecture
