Find the function \(f(x)\) described by the given initial value problem.

\(f'(x) = \sin x, \quad f(0) = 10\)

 

\(f(x) =\) ?

Integrating \(f'(x)\) with respect to \(x\) yields

\(f(x) = -\cos(x) + C\),

where \(C\) is a constant we can solve for given the initial condition. Because we are given \(f(0) = 10,\) we can say

\(10 = f(0) = -\cos(0) + C = -1 + C\).

This implies that \(C = 11.\) Hence,

\(f(x) = -\cos(x) + 11.\)
