what is mean by sine wave?

1 Answer

Hi,

Sine wave means it is the wave form of sinusoidal wave generally of voltage or current.

It takes the path of positive & negative half cycles. 1 set of positive and negative half cycles is called 1 cycle.

frequency is no. of cycles per second (HZ).

Thanks
