more gooder 
first question  10Minute Trig second question Arc Length and Area of a sector  Geometry Calculator you have s and r, calculate it third question 10Minute Trig forth not sure if that is looking for arc length or direct length. use page 1 or 3 depening fifth 10Minute Trig 2pi=180 degrees so 240 degrees = 240*2*pi/180 use the chart on first link to fill in the answers sixth saw blade a) RPM to Rad/sec saw blade b) velocity V=r x w ( where v=feet/sec, r=radius( in feet), w=angular velocity ( in rad/sec) calculate it 7th no idea what the hell DNE means 8th see 1 9th no idea what the III is for any questions, just ask. most of your answers are on the first link, just fill in the numbers and or substitute other values to reduce things to what you know.

Trig makes the world go round . In reality it's not so nasty. It's cool in EE because you use trig functions ALL THE TIME when talking about signal waveforms. Great stuff.

SOHCAHTOA Sin equals Opposite over Hypotenuse Cos Adjacent over Hyp Tan Opp over Adj just remember that and you can just draw things out on paper and figure out the angles/distances the same saying works for inverse trig functions also Inverse Sin of Theta equals Opposite over Hypotenuse etc..

Here's a trick for Trig. Memorize the first quadrant of the unit circle (Sin and Cos for θ= 0, pi/6, pi/4, pi/3 and pi/2) and remember that (x,y) = (cosθ, sinθ). You can use those two chunks of information to relate to the other three quadrants, since you know where x and y are positive and negative. Inverse and hyperbolic functions are easy too, but I don't think you're there yet. If you think any of this is hard, try understanding trigonometric substitution methods of integration... You really have to have a strong foundation in Trig. to get through Analytic Geometry. Hope this helped, Seth
