Hello,
How do you derive the equation at the bottom left of page three of this..... http://www.fairchildsemi.com/an/AN/AN4151.pdf ...that is, how does the expression containg alll the w's come out from the expression containg a sine in the numerator and denominator?.. ..is there some standard substitution you can do for the sine expressions?

Substitution, cancellation, substitution again.
 Answering questions is a tricky subject to practice. Not due to the difficulty of formulating or locating answers, but due to the human inability of asking the right questions; a skill that, were one to possess, would put them in the "answering" category.

The applicable substitution appears to be:
sin(x)/sin(x)=1

Thanks, i cant find them in maths book, do you just call them "sine substitutions"

Try looking for "trigonometric identities"
Lot's of info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trigonometric_identities Actually, it's a bit of information overload. Generally, useful in electronics are the sumtoproduct and producttosum transformations, which you can find on that page. What I mentioned in my previous post doesn't even qualify as a trigonometric substitution. It was simply two identical terms in the numerator and denominator which automatically cancel out. It had nothing to do with the fact that it was a sine function.
