What is V
mean when dealing with Sine Waves?
Voltage Peak - either the positive or negative maximum voltage.
What is V
when dealing with Sine Waves?
= Voltage Peak to Peak - the voltage distance between the negative peak and positive peak.
What is Vrms in Sine Wave?
Vrms = Voltage Root Means Square - It is a value that is less than V
Describe cycles in sine wave...
Cycles = One positive alteration and one negative alteration.
What does frequency mean?
The number of cycles completed in a given amount of time.
Frequency is measured in Hz. One Hz is one cycle completed in one second.

f = (cycle) / (time)
What is Amplitude when dealing with Square Wave?
Amplitude is Voltage.
What does Risetime mean when thinking of Square Wave?
The amount of time for the square wave to rise from 10% to 90% of full amplitude.
What is falltime when dealing with square wave?
The amount of time to fall from 90% of full amplitude to 10% of full amplitude.
When dealing with square wave form, describe pulse width...
The TIME between the leading and falling edge, measured at 50% of the full amplitude.
