2. A seagull floating in the lake bobs up and down. The distance between the highest and lowest points is \( 1.5 m \) . It takes \( 6 \) seconds for the seagull to move from its highest point to its lowest point. Model the vertical displacement, \( v \) , in meters, of the seagull as a function of time, \( t \) , in seconds. Assume that the seagull is at its equilibrium point at \( t = 0 \) seconds and that the seagull is on its way down at that time. Write a cosine equation expressing vertical displacement as a function of time.  

Answer

\(0.75cos(\frac{\pi }{6} t)+ 0.75\)
