# What is the graph of a sine function called?

A sine graph!

### How can you tell if a graph is a sine function or a cosine function?

sine graph will be formed at origine of graph and cosine graph is find on y-axise

### What is the graph of sine function is periodic at?

The graph of the sine function is periodic at every point. Periodic means that the value of the function at every point is repeated after an integer multiple of the period.

### Definition of sine wave?

A sine wave is the graph of y = sin(x). It demonstrates to cyclic nature of the sine function.

### What is the difference between negative sine and cosine graphs and positive sine and cosine graphs?

The negative sine graph and the positive sine graph have opposite signs: when one is negative, the other is positive - by exactly the same amount. The sine function is said to be an odd function. The two graphs for cosine are the same. The cosine function is said to be even.

### How does the graph of the cosine function differ from a graph of a sine function?

the graph of cos(x)=1 when x=0 the graph of sin(x)=0 when x=0. But that only tells part of the story. The two graphs are out of sync by pi/2 radians (or 90°; also referred to as 1/4 wavelength or 1/4 cycle). One cycle is 2*pi radians (the distance for the graph to get back where it started and repeat itself. The cosine graph is 'ahead' (leads) of the sine graph by 1/4 cycle. Or you… Read More

### What is the value of the sin?

If you mean the sine function, it is dependent on an angle. For example, the sine of an angle of zero degrees is zero; the sine of an angle of 90 degrees is one; for an angle of 180 degrees, the sine is again 0; if you make a graph, you get a curve that looks like a wave. In general, the values the sine function can take are between 1 and -1, inclusive.

### Are linear equations and functions the same?

No. A linear equation is just one type of function. If you graph a linear equation, you get a straight line. A "function" on the other hand can take on many different forms: a straight line, a wave line (the sine function), a parabola, etc. No. A linear equation is just one type of function. If you graph a linear equation, you get a straight line. A "function" on the other hand can take on… Read More

### Why it is named sinusoidal wave or sine wave in ac?

It's called a sine wave because the waveform can be reproduced as a graph of the sine or cosine functions sin(x) or cos (x).

### What is a real life example of the sine function?

A real life example of the sine function could be a ferris wheel. People board the ride at the ground (sinusoidal axis) and the highest and lowest heights you reach on the ride would be the amplitudes of the graph.

### What are the Differentiate the sine wave and cosine wave?

The differential of the sine function is the cosine function while the differential of the cosine function is the negative of the sine function.

### Is a sine function a periodic function?

Yes, the sine function is a periodic function. It has a period of 2 pi radians or 360 degrees.

### Is the sine functions an odd function?

Yes. Along with the tangent function, sine is an odd function. Cosine, however, is an even function.

### What is the difference between a sine graph and a cosine graph?

The sine graph and the cosine graph are identical in shape, with the cosine graph shifted to the left by pi / 2, i.e. the sine starts at (x=0,y=0) and proceeds up with an initial slope of one, and the cosine starts at (x=0,y=1), and proceeds down with an initial slope of zero.

### How can you tell by looking at a graph its a function?

Draw a graph of a given curve in the xoy plane. Now draw a vertical line so that it cuts the graph. If the vertical line cuts the graph in more than one ordinate then given graph is not a function. If it cuts the graph at a single ordinate such a graph is a function.(is called vertical line test)

### What are the intervals of sine function?

The sine function repeats every 2pi radians (360 degrees).

### What is the domain of the sine function?

The domain of the sine function is [-infinity, +infinity]. The range is [-1, +1]. The sine function is periodic. It repeats itself every 360 degrees or 2PI radians.

### How can you tell the difference graph or function?

A function describes the relationship between two or more variables. A graph is a kind of visual representation of one or more function. A line or curve seen on a graph is called the graph of a function. * * * * * For any point in the domain, a function can map to only ine point in the range or codomain. In simpler terms, it means that (for a two dimensional graph), a vertical… Read More

### Why does the sine graph always start at 0?

sin(0) = 0 but, in general, the sine graph need not start at 0. For example, sin(x + 2) does not start at 0.

### How does multiplying the sine function by a number less than zero affect the graph?

The graph of -k*sin(x) is a reflection of the graph of sin(x) in the x-axis which is then enlarged by the scale factor k.

### How is the motion of a pendulum like that of a wave?

If you set the middle as x = 0, and record displacement over time, the graph will look like a sine wave function graph. Also, it's a repeated motion, much like a wave's.

### The graph of sine and cosine function?

Placing a question mark at the end of a phrase does not make it a sensible question. Try to use a whole sentence to describe what it is that you want answered.

### Is sine function defined on angles more than 90degree?

Yes. It continues forever, though repeating itself which is what makes a sign graph go up and down.

### What do you call a function whose graph is a non-vertical line?

It is a function. If the graph contains at least two points on the same vertical line, then it is not a function. This is called the vertical line test.

### What is the derivation of the wave function?

A simple wave function can be expressed as a trigonometric function of either sine or cosine. lamba = A sine(a+bt) or lamba = A cosine(a+bt) where lamba = the y value of the wave A= magnitude of the wave a= phase angle b= frequency. the derivative of sine is cosine and the derivative of cosine is -sine so the derivative of a sine wave function would be y'=Ab cosine(a+bt) """"""""""""""""""" cosine wave function would be… Read More

### Which function's graph has a period of 2?

There are an infinite number. The simplest is a sinusoid. The sine function has period 2π, so you compress it by a factor of π: f(x) = sin (πx).

### What is the relation between sine wave and frequency?

A sine wave is a periodic function and, by suitably adjusting the argument of the sine function, can be made to fit a wide functions with different frequencies.

### How do you graph linear functions?

A linear function is called "linear" because it represents a straight line. To graph a linear function, find two points that satisify that function, plot them, and then draw a straight line between them.

### What is the zero of a function and how does it relate to the functions graph?

A zero of a function is a point at which the value of the function is zero. If you graph the function, it is a point at which the graph touches the x-axis.

### What is sinusodial alternating quantity?

It's any quantity that changes in a regular and repeating fashion, and when you draw a graph of its variation with time, or view it on an oscilloscope or computer screen, the graph has the same shape as the trigonometric 'sine' function of angles. You'd recognize it immediately if you saw it.

### What is sine voltage?

sine wave is the alternating current wave which is belongs to sinusoidal function.

### Why is the graph of the function called a ray and not a line?

It is called a line so I don't see why the question arises!

### Why we use sin cos etc in sinusoidal wave?

By its very mane, a sinusoidal wave refers to a sine function. The cosine function is simply the sine function that is phase-shifted.

### How is the function differentiable in graph?

If the graph of the function is a continuous line then the function is differentiable. Also if the graph suddenly make a deviation at any point then the function is not differentiable at that point . The slope of a tangent at any point of the graph gives the derivative of the function at that point.

### How do you recognize a function graph?

Assuming that the independent variable (often called "y") is along the vertical axis: to be a function, no vertical line may cross the graph in more than one place.

### Why do all graphs flatten out?

They do not. A sine graph, for example, goes on oscillating forever.

### What is a sine wave?

See the link below A sine wave is computed by a mathematical function. A pure sine wave in a physical sense would exactly match the calculated value in the function at every point in time.

### The line that cuts the graph of a quadratic function in half is called the axis of what?

It is the axis of symmetry.
