Solutions

Chapter 4, Problem 23RE
To determine

The features of the family members of the curve.

Expert Solution

Explanation of Solution

Given:

The function is

  f(x)=ln(sinx+C)

Concept used:

The function is periodic with period of 2π with maximum at 2nπ+π2 .

Calculation:

The function is

  f(x)=ln(sinx+C)................................(1)

The graph function will undefined

If C1 because (sinx+C) will become zero or negative and the natural logarithmic of zero or a negative number is undefined.

Using the value C=0,1,2and3

  y=ln(sinx+0)y=ln(sinx+1)y=ln(sinx+2)y=ln(sinx+3)

The graph that the function is periodic with period of 2π with maximum at 2nπ+π2

For the function to be continuous on (,) the function has to be defined for any value of x

The function will have no graph when C1

When C the function becomes a straight line parallel to xaxis

Draw the graph

  f(x)=ln(sinx+C)
