how to get numerical values of the following:


cos(pi/2)^2  where square should be on cos not on angle

when I enter a trig function as cos(pi/2) I get as a return the same input.  What I would like is the numeric answer displayed. also there are times when I don't want pi in the answer but a numeric value calculated based on pi * whatever.

Thanks

How can i answer iv on Maple?

Hello,

I've just started to use Maple 16, and I can't seem to get a neat result, when I use the solve function to solve 4 equations with 4 unknown constants.

I've posted my calculations.

 

How can I get a simpler result? I found a simplification command, but that didn't help

I have in mind all the real roots of the equation 2*tan(Pi*t^2)-tan(Pi*t)+tan(Pi*t)*tan(Pi*t^2)^2 = 0.

Maple fails with it:

>RealDomain:-solve(2*tan(Pi*t^2)-tan(Pi*t)+tan(Pi*t)*tan(Pi*t^2)^2 = 0, t);

RootOf(tan(_Z)*tan(_Z^2/Pi)^2-tan(_Z)+2*tan(_Z^2/Pi))/Pi

 Even its numerical solution has gaps.

>Digits := 15; a := Student[Calculus1]:-Roots(2*tan(Pi*t^2)-tan(Pi*t)+tan(Pi*t)*tan(Pi*t^2)^2 = 0, t = -2 .. 2);
Warning, some roots are returned as numeric approximations

                               10


whereas 

>plot(2*tan(Pi*t^2)-tan(Pi*t)+tan(Pi*t)*tan(Pi*t^2)^2, t = -2 .. 2);

shows 14 solutions.

The output of the command

>identify(a);

[1/4-(1/4)*sqrt(41), 1/4-(1/4)*sqrt(33), -1, 0, 1, 1/4+(1/4)*sqrt(17), 1/4+(1/4)*sqrt(33), 1/4+(1/4)*sqrt(41)]

suggests a closed-form expression for the roots.

N := 4;
print(`output redirected...`); # input placeholder
4
y := sum(A[2*n].cos(2.*n.x), n = 0 .. N);

eq1 := diff(y, `$`(x, 2))+(a+2*q*cos(2*x))*y

eq2 := map(combine, eq1, trig)

for i from 0 to 4 do eq4[i] := coeff(eq2, cos(2*n*x)) end do

From these I want to extract the co-ffficients of cos(0x),cos(2x),cos(4x)..

and form a simultaneous linear equation containg A0,A2,A4

The solution is 

aA0+qA2=0

2q*A0+(a-4)*A2+q*A4=0

Can anybody tell me how to do it

Hi folks,

I've come across this project which involves large algebraic expressions and I need to be able to simplify it using Maples in-built features, but with no succes.

The problem involves trig-functions. For instance I have several expressions involving:

       cos(v)*sin(w)-cos(w)*sin(v)       which I know equals     -sin(v-w)

but even if I use simplify, trig, size and so on it won't apply the above identity. Btw there are several other identities that aren't applied either.

Is there any way to "force" the above identity into consideration??

Hello

 

I am having issue in finding the explanation on how to solve inverse trig funtion and expression with inverse trig funtions. I do not understand my school book and I was hoping that the software would have given me an extra help in understanding my school problems. 

 

Thank you very much

Hello,

After trigonometric manipulations in a mechanical problem, I can obtain the desired angles but defined with modulo 2Pi.

I would like to program or find a function which can do this operation :

While angle doesn't belong to [-Pi, Pi]

do 

  If angle > Pi then do angle = angle - 2Pi

  If angle < - Pi then do angle = angle + 2Pi

end

Is there an existing function which can do this operation ?

Otherwise, may you help me to program it ?

Thanks a lot for your help

Hello,

I would like to simplify a trigonometric equation that I obtain with a vectorial closure (in mechanics)

Here the equation that I would like to simplify 

eq_liaison := (-sin(p(t)+g(t))*cos(a(t))-sin(b(t))*sin(a(t))*cos(p(t)+g(t)))*l2[1]+((-sin(p(t)+g(t))*cos(a(t))-sin(b(t))*sin(a(t))*cos(p(t)+g(t)))*cos(th(t))+(-cos(p(t)+g(t))*cos(a(t))+sin(a(t))*sin(b(t))*sin(p(t)+g(t)))*sin(th(t)))*l3[1]+(-sin(a(t))*sin(g(t))*sin(b(t))+cos(a(t))*cos(g(t)))*xb[1]+sin(a(t))*cos(b(t))*yb[1]+(sin(a(t))*sin(b(t))*cos(g(t))+cos(a(t))*sin(g(t)))*zb[1]+x(t)-xp(t) = 0

Do you have ideas so as to simplify again this expression ?

This expression can still be simplified. You can find here the result expected :

 

I find surprising that I have so many difficulties to make trigonometric simplications with the trigonometric functions.

Thank you for your help

I have:

r:=t-><4cos2t+4sint,5cos3t+4cost,(sin3t+2sint)^2>

with(plots):

 

then I tried:

spacecurve(r(t), t = 0 .. 2*Pi, thickness = 2, color = black, axes = normal, labels = [x, y, z], numpoints = 150)

But I keep getting the error: Warning, unable to evalute the function to numeric values in the region. 

But I thought <4cos2t+4sint, 5cos3t+4cost, (sin3t+2sint)^2> was defined on the region t=0 to 2Pi??? 

I'm using Maple 2015 if that helps. 

hi,

it what i wanted.

I want to reduce all solution of the equation sin(x)^2=1/4

restart:
sol:=solve(sin(x)^2=1/4, x, AllSolutions);

and

restart:
k:=combine((sin(x))^2);
sol:=solve(k=1/4, x, AllSolutions = true, explicit);
simplify(sol);

How can I reduce solution sol := -1/3*Pi*_B3+1/6*Pi+Pi*_Z3 ?

How can I get x= pi/6+k*pi and x= -pi/6+k*pi?

Hi guys.

I want to know how can I make the maple to give final response of a simple trigonometric function, e.g sin(pi/6). When I type sin(pi/6) in the command line and then press enter, maple give the same, I mean sin(pi/6) at the next line. I want 0.5 as the final response not sin(pi/6) again. Simplify command does not work for me in this case.

Thanks in advance.
