Question

If for the function $$\displaystyle f(x)=\cos^{-1}\left( \frac{x^{2}}{\sqrt{1+x^{2}}}\right)$$ the range is (a,b), then find sin(b).

Solution

Consider $$f(\theta)=cos^{-1}(\theta)$$Then $$\theta\epsilon [-1,1]$$Similarly in the above case$$-1\leq \dfrac{x^{2}}{\sqrt{1+x^{2}}}\leq 1$$Now $$\dfrac{x^{2}}{\sqrt{1+x^{2}}}$$ will always be greater than 0.Hence, $$0\leq \dfrac{x^{2}}{\sqrt{1+x^{2}}}\leq 1$$$$\dfrac{x^{2}}{\sqrt{1+x^{2}}}\epsilon [0,1]$$Hence, $$\cos^{-1}(\dfrac{x^{2}}{\sqrt{1+x^{2}}})\epsilon[0,\dfrac{\pi}{2}]$$$$f(x)\epsilon[0,\dfrac{\pi}{2}]$$Hence $$a=0$$ and $$b=\dfrac{\pi}{2}$$Therefore $$\sin b=\sin(\dfrac{\pi}{2})$$$$=1$$.Mathematics
