Trigonometric Values : Angles in Any Quadrant
» The angle is measured from positive x-axis
x and y coordinates takes sign. » Trigonometric values can be derived for points , , and
quad means four
2D coordinate plane is split into four quadrants. Four Quadrants are numbered as I, II, III, and IV as shown in the figure.
The word "quadrant" means quarter of a plane. The word "Quadrant" is derived from one fourth or quarter.
angles in other quadrants
Consider angle . can be computed for line on unit circle at . The projection of the line on x and y axes defines the trigonometric ratios.
Similarly, can be computed for line of unit circle at angle. The projection of the line on x and y axes defined the trigonometric ratios.
positive and negative
The projection of line on x and y axes can be positive or negative. So the trigonometric ratios can be positive or negative.
Trigonometric Ratios can be calculated for any angle between and and the value of ratio can be positive or negative.
Understanding Trigonometric Ratios for any Angle: Consider the line at the given angle in the unit circle. The projections on x and y axes define the trigonometric ratios. The angle can be between and and the projections can be positive or negative.
It is advised to do the firmfunda version of "basics of Trigonometry" course before doing this.
