Find the value of cos of zero.
00:00:04.960 --> 00:00:06.640
Let’s consider a unit circle.
00:00:07.280 --> 00:00:13.920
On the unit circle, the point one, zero represents zero degrees and zero radians.
00:00:14.680 --> 00:00:17.120
We’re looking for cos of zero.
00:00:17.800 --> 00:00:20.000
And it does not have the degree symbol.
00:00:20.480 --> 00:00:23.240
So we can assume that it’s zero radians.
00:00:24.480 --> 00:00:29.720
Cos of angle 𝜃 is equal to the ratio of the adjacent side length over the hypotenuse.
00:00:30.640 --> 00:00:33.480
Imagine a right triangle like this.
00:00:34.480 --> 00:00:40.200
Cos of angle 𝜃 would be the ratio of the pink side to the yellow side.
00:00:40.840 --> 00:00:42.680
The adjacent side length over the hypotenuse.
00:00:43.520 --> 00:00:51.360
Here’s another triangle where we have the hypotenuse as yellow and the adjacent side length as pink.
00:00:52.120 --> 00:01:08.920
When it comes to the unit circle and it comes to cos of zero, the adjacent side and the hypotenuse are of equal length, which means that the cos of zero is equal to one, the adjacent side equal to the hypotenuse at zero.
00:01:10.040 --> 00:01:16.640
In fact cos of zero equal to one is an important form that we usually memorise.
