 Question 24976: i have a question that appears on your site, however as i progressed with my answer i have come to a difficult point and am stuck. this is what i have got so far; E=Fs =7sin(t-60)*4sin(t+30) which can use the idenitity- 2sinAsinB=cos(A+B)-cos(A+B) =0.5(cos((t-60)-(t+30))-cos((t-60)+(t+30))) =0.5(cos(t-60-t-30)-cos(t-60+t+30)) =0.5(cos(-90)-cos(2t-30)) =0.5*0-cos(2t-30) And thats where i got up to, i know the answer should some how get to; -14cos(2t-30) But i just cannot get there, can you tell me where i am going wrong and point me there please. this is the question; the displacement of a body is given by s=4sin(t+30), and a force acting upon the body is given by F=7sin(t-60). If the energy of the motion, E, at time t is the product Fs, show that E=-14cos(2t-30) Click here to see answer by stanbon(57387)
