It is a sine wave form coupled with either a DC component or other sine waves or both.
The official definition of the word waveform is "a curve showing the shape of a wave at a given time."

What is the difference between simple and complex waveforms?

simple waveform - something like a sine wave. Very pure sound like you used to get on the tv when that girl was sitting with the toys in the middle of the night. Complex waveform is like speech etc

Is the human arterial pressure waveform wider than the ECG waveform?

Yes. The EKG (or ECG) measures the electrical activity of the heart so the waveform (the QRS complex) reflects how fast the electrical impulse spreads through the heart. The heart actually takes longer than this to contract leading to a wider waveform.

What is waveform on the LCD screen?

The waveform on an LCD screen is the wavelength at which the images are being transmitted. The higher the waveform, the better the image quality.

Describe the effects of complex waveforms on electrical systems?

Because a complex wave is purveyed as a 'distortion', this generally equates to an effect on what output the circuit gives. As the complex wave is, as quoted, the sum of the fundamental and the 3rd harmonic (commonly known as superposition), the nature of the effect on electrical and electronic systems are determined by how distorted the complex waveform is.

What is the physical length of a voltage waveform?

Voltage does not have a waveform. The waveform is based upon the frequency of the voltage or current. A battery (any voltage) does not waveform, however the voltage coming into your house (US) has a frequency of 60 Hz. The length of the 60 hz waveformLength (in centimeters) = (3 x (10 ** 10))/ Frequency in hz =500 000 000 cm

What is the period of a clock waveform whose frequency is 2 mhz?

If the question is what is the waveform for 2 Mhz, then 500nS is the answer (equasion used is f=1/t) If the question is what is the waveform for 2mHz, then 500 S is the answer.

How do you measure the duration of a QRS complex?

The start of the QT interval is the first deviation from the isoelectric line following the p wave and the end is the last time the waveform crosses the isoelectric line before the T-wave begins. The waveform may well corss the isolelectric line several times before the end of the QRS interval. Normal measurement is less than or equal to .12 In simple terms, it is the start and end of the "spiky" high-frequency part of the waveform.

A longitudinal wave is a "side-on" waveform. A transverse Wave is a "end-on" waveform.

What is a cycloconverter?

A cycloconverter or a cycloinverter converts an AC waveform, such as the mains supply, to another AC waveform of a lower frequency, synthesizing the output waveform from segments of the AC supply without an intermediate direct-current link.

What is ac waveform?

AC waveform is a graph that tells the degree and radiant. On the graph the degrees is graphed in top and the radiant is on bottom.

Why differentiator only produce a square wave?

It doesn't. It can produce any waveform if you feed the integral of the desired waveform into the differentiator's input.

What is the RMS value of AC sinusoidal waveform?

RMS of a sinusoidal waveform with no DC offset is 1/sqrt(2) of the peak to neutral value.

What is the difference between speech and audio?

A: Audio refers to frequency that can be heard with our ears 20 Hz to 20 kilo Hz. Speech is fundamentally in that area. But speech is a complex waveform restricted to the same frequency and that is fundamentally the difference
