1 answer

when t = 0, argument of cos = pi
when does it equal pi + 2 pi?
when 6 pi t = 2 pi
or T = (1/3) second
or f = 1/T = 3 Hz
amplitude is 2 of course
phase = pi or however your book defines phase
2 cos (6*pi*.27 + pi)
2 cos (8.23 radians)
2 cos (471.6 degrees) because I am too lazy to convert calculator to radians
= .717 meters 👍
