I am currently working on a problem and reduced part of the equations down to $\cos(1^\circ)+\cos(3^\circ)+…..+\cos(39^\circ)+\cos(41^\circ)+\cos(43^\circ)$ How can I calculate this easily using the product-to-sum formula for $\cos(x)+\cos(y)$?

Is it possible to find the unit vector with: Roll € [-90 (banked to right), 90 (banked to left)], Pitch € [-90 (all the way down), 90 (all the way up)] Yaw € [0, 360 (N)] I calculated it without the Roll and it is \begin{pmatrix} cos(Pitch) sin(Yaw)\\ cos(Yaw) cos(Pitch)\\ sin(Pitch) \end{pmatrix}. How should it […]

The question is to evaluate $$\frac{\sum_{k=0}^{6}\csc^2(a+\frac{k\pi}{7})}{7\csc^2(7a)}$$ where $a=\pi/8$ without looking at the trigonometric table. I tried to transform the $\csc^2$ term to $\cot^2$ term and use addition formula but it made the problem too cumbersome.I also tried to manipulate the numerator in the form so that it telescopes but couldnot succeed.I am not in need […]

$$\sqrt{3}\sin{x} – \cos{x} = \sqrt{2} $$ I think to do : $$\frac{(\sqrt{3}\sin{x} – \cos{x} = \sqrt{2})}{\sqrt{2}}$$ but i dont get anything. Or to divied by $\sqrt{3}$ : $$\frac{(\sqrt{3}\sin{x} – \cos{x} = \sqrt{2})}{\sqrt{3}}$$

I need to compute $$\int \limits _{-\pi} ^\pi \frac {e^{in\theta} – e^{i(n-1)\theta}} {\mid \sin {\theta} \mid} d\theta .$$ Does anyone see any good strategy? Thanks.

If $\sin x + \sin^2 x =1$ then find the value of $\cos^8 x + 2\cos^6 x + \cos^4 x$ My Attempt: $$\sin x + \sin^2 x=1$$ $$\sin x = 1-\sin^2 x$$ $$\sin x = \cos^2 x$$ Now, $$\cos^8 x + 2\cos^6 x + \cos^4 x$$ $$=\sin^4 x + 2\sin^3 x +\sin^2 x$$ $$=\sin^4 x […]

I am having trouble evaluating the following double integral: $$\int\limits_0^\pi\int\limits_0^{2\pi}\exp\left[a\sin\theta\cos\psi+b\sin\theta\sin\psi+c\cos\theta\right]\sin\theta d\theta\, d\psi$$ I will be satisfied with an answer involving special functions (e.g. modified Bessel function). I tried expanding the product terms using the product-to-sum identities, as well applied other trigonometric identities, to no avail. Can anyone help? I suspect that the solution will involve […]
