How to find the value at a certain angle of the sinusoid?

Good night sir, I have two sinusoidal functions whose sinusoidal maximum value is = 20 and the sinusoidal minimum = -20, we know that the maximum point the angle of the sinusoid = 90 ° or π / 2 in radians and corresponds to the value 20 I need to know an equation in which the second (red) signal switches will be valid, I know the angle is 150 ° and the corresponding value will be 10.30 (given by the software) but I want to know an equation for me to reach that value
All I need to know, to be clearer is an equation where I will find the value in the blue sine when the red signal switches, I know that the angle at which it switches is 150 ° or 5π / 6 in radians. What is the equation for me to reach the value 10.30 that the red signal switches.

Thanks to anyone who can help.

From your graph, it looks like your "sinusoid" has a minimum of -20, a maximum of +20, a period of 0.02, and f(0) = 0. From that information, $\displaystyle f(x)= 20\sin\left(\frac{2\pi}{0.02}x\right)$. If I understand this correctly, the "red signal switches" at the point where there is a vertical red line. That line has $\displaystyle y= f(x)= 20\sin\left(\frac{2\pi}{0.02}x\right)= 10.03$. Solving that, we have $\displaystyle \sin\left(\frac{2\pi}{0.02}x\right)= 0.5015$, so that $\displaystyle \frac{2\pi}{0.02}x= 0.5253$. $\displaystyle x= \frac{0.5253(0.02)}{2\pi}= \frac{0.0105}{6.283}= 0.00167$.
