- can you do a vid of both sine and cosine at the same time like this with music(6 votes)
- One of the best possible ways it can be explained. Thanks...(2 votes)
- Thanks.

Here's sine and cosine together: https://spinningnumbers.org/a/eulers-sine-cosine.html(4 votes)

- Why am I feeling that the adding is simply adding rather than vector adding, because if it is vector adding there will be squaring and rooting of the numbers.(1 vote)
- Notice there is a diamond shape rotating around. That is how you do a vector add.(3 votes)

ps. "Transcript" : (music playing)(2 votes) - is it possible to use sine, cosine, and tangent all in the same problem?(1 vote)
- I don't see why not. But I don't think it's necessary for AC circuit analysis.(1 vote)
