Incidentay, since the

x-axis coincides with

the y-axis when it is

rotated by 90degrs

(

π

radians), we can

say

sin

θ

is a function

that outputs, delayed

by

π

, the same values

as

cos

θ

.

In other words,

Using Integrals with Trigonometric Functions 127

Let’s use this

to integrate

from 0 to

α

.

Uh…

Is this right?

Right! If we

make these

infinitely

sma…

We find that

the integral

of cosine is

sine.

Then, to put it the

other way around, the

derivative of sine is

cosine?

You’re

right!
