The maximum angle is 12 degrees, so the amplitude of the theta function is 12. As well, a complete cycle is 2 seconds. The period of a periodic trig function is `k={2pi}/T={2 pi}/2=pi` , where k is the scaling factor inside the sine function.
For a sine function, we have:
`theta(t)=a sin kt` now sub in values to get:
`theta(t)=12sin(pi t)`
The angle to the vertical is `theta(t)=12sin(pi t)` .
