Identity Index in Trigonometry

Here is the formula index in trigonometric identities. Again, identities are the fundamentals of trigonometry. This is the counterpart of four basic operations in arithmetic.

Basic Identity

sinx=\displaystyle\frac{1}{cscx}

cosx=\displaystyle\frac{1}{secx}

tanx=\displaystyle\frac{1}{cotx}

Pythagorean Identity

cos^2x+sin^2x=1

sec^2x=1+tan^2x

csc^2x=1+cot^2x

Addition and Subtraction Identify

cos(x+y)=cosxcosy-sinxsiny

cos(x-y)=cosxcosy+sinxsiny

sin(x+y)=sinxcosy+cosxsiny

sin(x-y)=sinxcosy-cosxsiny

tan(x+y)=\displaystyle\frac{tanx+tany}{1-tanxtany}

tan(x-y)=\displaystyle\frac{tanx-tany}{1+tanxtany}

cot(x+y)= \displaystyle\frac{cotxcoty-1}{cotx+coty}

cot(x-y)= \displaystyle\frac{cotxcoty+1}{cotx-coty}

Special Reduction Identity

sin(-x)=-sinx

cos(-x)=cosx

tan(-x)=-tanx

cot(-x)=-cotx

cos(\frac{\pi}{2}-x)=cosx

sin(\frac{\pi}{2}-x)=sinx

tan(\frac{\pi}{2}-x)=tanx

cot(\frac{\pi}{2}-x)=cotx

Double Angle Identity

sin2x=2sinxcosx

cos2x=cos^2x-sin^2x=1-2sin^2x=2sin^2x-1

tan2x=\displaystyle\frac{2tanx}{1-tan^2x}

Half Angle Identity

sin(\displaystyle\frac{x}{2})=\pm\sqrt{\displaystyle\frac{1-cosx}{2}}

cos(\displaystyle\frac{x}{2})=\pm\sqrt{\displaystyle\frac{1+cosx}{2}}

tan(\displaystyle\frac{x}{2})=\displaystyle\frac{sinx}{1+cosx}=\pm\sqrt{\displaystyle\frac{1-cosx}{1+cosx}}

Product to Sum Identity

sinxcosy=\displaystyle\frac{1}{2}[sin(x+y)+sin(x-y)]

cosxsiny=\displaystyle\frac{1}{2}[sin(x+y)-sin(x-y)]

cosxcosy=\displaystyle\frac{1}{2}[cos(x+y)+cos(x-y)]

sinxsiny=\displaystyle\frac{1}{2}[cos(x-y)-sin(x+y)]

Sum to Product Identity

sinx+siny=2sin\displaystyle\frac{x+y}{2}\cdot cos\displaystyle\frac{x-y}{2}

sinx-siny=2cos\displaystyle\frac{x+y}{2}\cdot sin\displaystyle\frac{x-y}{2}

cosx+cosy=2cos\displaystyle\frac{x+y}{2}\cdot cos\displaystyle\frac{x-y}{2}

cosx-cosy=-2sin\displaystyle\frac{x+y}{2}\cdot sin\displaystyle\frac{x-y}{2}

  1. I am curious to locate out what blog system you’re utilizing? Im having some small security problems with my latest site and Id like to find something a lot more risk-free. Do you’ve any suggestions? Hmm it looks like your weblog ate my initial comment (it was super long) so I guess Ill just sum it up what I wrote and say, Im thoroughly enjoying your weblog. I too am an aspiring weblog blogger but Im still new to everything. Do you’ve any guidelines and hints for rookie weblog writers? Id definitely appreciate it.

    I am now not positive the place you’re getting your information, however good topic. I needs to spend some time learning more or understanding more. Thanks for great information I used to be in search of this information for my mission.
