Computing Limits II: The Squeeze Theorem – Application Proof

Posted: 9th February 2013 by seanmathmodelguy in Lectures

One very important application of the squeeze theorem is the proof that \(\displaystyle \lim_{\theta \to 0} \frac{\sin \theta}{\theta} = 1\). We present this proof next. This proof is for the limit as \(\theta\to 0^+\). The case for \(\theta\to 0^-\) can be proved in exactly the same manner and we leave it as an exercise to […]
