Angles and their Relationship

  • Angles are measured in many units’ viz. degrees, minutes, seconds, radians, gradients.
  • Where 1 degree = 60 minutes, 1 minute = 60 seconds,
    π radians = 180° = 200g
    ⇒ 1 radian = 180°/π and 1 degree = π/ 180 radians.

Basic Trigonometric Ratios

  • In a right triangle ABC, if θ be the angle between AC & BC.

  • If θ is one of the angle other then right angle, then the side opposite to the angle is perpendicular (P) and the sides containing the angle are taken as Base ( B) and the hypotenuse (H). In this type of triangles, we can have six types of ratios. These ratios are called trigonometric ratios.

Range of Values of Ratios

If 0 ≤ θ ≤ 360o, then the values for different trigonometric ratios will be as follows: 

  1. - 1 ≤ Sin θ ≤ 1
  2. - 1 ≤ cos θ ≤ 1
  3. - ∞ ≤ tan θ ≤ ∞
  4. - ∞ ≤ cot θ ≤ ∞
  5. - ∞ ≤ Sec θ ≤ -1    &       1 ≤ Sec θ ≤ ∞
  6. - ∞ ≤ Cosec θ ≤ - 1     &      1 ≤ Cosec θ ≤ ∞

Sign of Trigonometric Ratios

We divide the angle at a point (i.e. 360°) into 4 parts called quadrants. In the first quadrant all the trigonometric ratios are positive.
