Domain and range of trigonometric functions and their graphs

Function’s domain is defined as the particular set values that an independent variable contained in a function can accept the work. The range exists as resulting values which a dependent variable can hold a value of ‘x’ changes all through the domain.

For Cosine and Sine Functions, the Range and Domain

There are no limitations on cosine and sine’s domain functions. So, their domain results in the form of x ∈ R.

It’s important to note that, nonetheless, the range for y = cos (x) and y = sin (x) is between the range of (-1 & 1). Hence, the changes found in these functions regarding stretches and shifts will result in affecting the range of trigonometric functions but not the domain of the trigonometric functions.

Domain and Range of Sine Function

y = f(x)= Sin(x)

Range: The value lies between -1 ≤ y ≤ 1

Domain: It’s determined for all the ‘x’ real values

Period: 2π = 360º

Sine Function is an odd function

Domain and Range of Cosine Function

y= f(x) = cos(x)

Range: the value lies between -1 ≤ y ≤ 1

Domain: Defined for all the x real values

Period: 2π

Cosine is an even function

From the above graph, we can see that the range remains there and graph reduces

Domain and Range for Tangent functions

Note that the function y = tan (x) consist of vertical asymptotes at . Hence,

For – y=f(x)=tan(x)

Range: All real numbers (or y ∈ R)

Tangent’s Domain: Defined for all x real values, except x ≠(2n + 1)(π/2), where n is any integer.

Period: π

Tangent is an odd function

As a result. from the above domain and range, changes will affect range but will affect the domain.
