Hello Tia,
I don't think what you are trying to do is possible, but you may be
able to find approximation methods to get close.

Possible methods include:
a) Truncated Fourier Series, (FourierTrigSeries)
b) Expanding a trignometric function in a series, and then comparing
coefficients
(Series, Collect, Solve)
c) Fit data generated by your model polynomial to your trigonometric form.
(Table, FindFit)

Best Wishes, Craig
