Q. Define Period, Amplitude and Phase Shift?
Ans.
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.
The phase shift of a curve is the shift, left or right, of the base curve.
