Q12b

Min is sitting in a rocking chair. The distance, `d(t)`

, between the wall and the rear of the chair varies sinusoidally with time `t`

. At `t = 1`

a. What is the period of the function, and What does it represent in this situation?

b. How far is the chair from the wall when no one is rocking in it?

c. If Meagan rocks back and forth `40`

times only, what is the domain of the function?

d. What is the range of the function in part (c)?

e. What is the amplitude of the function, and what does it represent in this situation?
