Q. Define Period, Amplitude and Phase Shift?


Period, amplitude and phase shift are used when describing a sinusoidal curve

The period of a function is the smallest number p for which f( x + p) = f(x) for each x for which is defined.

The function sin(x) repeats every degrees, sin (x +) = sin(x). It is also clear by the graph that 2p is the smallest number for which this is true. The period of sin(x) is 2Π.

The amplitude of a sinusoidal wave is the distance from the central axis (the x-axis in this case) and the maximum or minimum value of the wave.
