Cosine is the derivative of sine.
y = sin(x) - Domain: D = ℝ, x, x0, x<> x0 in ℝ, Δx = x − x0, Δy = f(x)-f(x0).
[sin(x)] ’ = f’(x) = lim (Δy/Δx) = lim [f(x0+Δx)-f(x0)]/Δx = cos(x)
The derivative of sine, y = sin(x) —by its conceptual definition as “slope of the tangent line”— is change-in-y-over-change-in-x = dy/dx = -sin(x)/1 = -sin(x)
Likewise, the derivative of sine is = cos.
