 May 24 comment Explaining why sin and cos are *not* at right angles @Hurkyl - The question is [here](electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/32269/). John is Telaclavo, I am stevenvh (I must have my existing account here merged with this new one). Most of the discussion has been deleted, however, in the name of peace :-) May 24 comment Explaining why sin and cos are *not* at right angles @Rahul - Yes, that's what John also used as argument: sin(x + $\pi$/2) = cos(x). But that only means that the sin and cos then are equal. Sin(37°) = 0.6 and cos(37°) = 0.8. How are 0.6 and 0.8 90° apart??
