A team of astronauts is training for being weightless in space by riding in an airplane which is flying in a sinusoidal curve – the airplane flies high and then turns steeply down to mimic free fall, and hence weightlessness for the astronauts, before flying back to the top of the curve. The path of the airplane can be modeled using the function h(x) = 10000cos(0.0001x) + 20000 in which h indicates the height in feet. What is the amplitude of the wave?

- 0.0001

The path of the airplane the astronauts are flying in can be modeled using the function h(x) = 10000cos(0.0001x) + 20000 in which h indicates the height in feet. What is the approximate period of the wave?

The path of the airplane the astronauts are flying in can be modeled using the function h(x) = 10000cos(0.0001x) + 20000 in which h indicates the height in feet. For roughly how far will the astronauts free fall each time the airplane completes a full cycle?

**20,000 ft**- 28,000 ft

The path of the airplane the astronauts are flying in can be modeled using the function h(x) = 10000cos(0.0001x) + 20000 in which h indicates the height in feet. If the airplane averages 200 miles per hour in the forward direction (so not the speed of the plane, but the speed of the plane in the horizontal direction), roughly how many cycles can the airplane complete in an hour? Note that there are 5,280 ft in a mile.
