 Sine wave - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A sine wave or sinusoid is a waveform whose graph is identical to the generalized sine function
Any non-sinusoidal waveforms, such as square waves or even the irregular sound waves made by human speech, are actually a collection of sinusoidal waves of different periods and frequencies blended together.
The human ear can recognize single sine waves because they sound "clean" or "clear" to us; some sounds that approximate a pure sine wave are whistling, a crystal glass set to vibrate by running a wet finger around its rim, and the sound made by a tuning fork.

THE SINE FUNCTION Ronald G. Sienkiewicz Prosser Vocational High School Chicago, IL 60639 1-312-637-5556 Objectives: To familiarize the students with the concept of the sine function by defining, by graphing, by computer generating, by using a "shop created" flboard sine wave generator, and by presenting examples of natural phenomena which result in sine wave motion.
Writing an equation on the chalkboard and asking the students to predict its graph, I was able to quickly and efficiently run through several variations of the sine function without the tediousness of using the chalkboard.
The significant idea here, being that this type of motion (the movement of a pendulum and the motion of a mass at the end of a spring-natural phenomena) will always be mathematically expressed in terms of sines and cosines.

 Sine Waver
This "height" of a point on a unit circle is known as the sine of the angle determined by that point (from the center of the circle).
It therefore represents the sine of X (because it falls on the red line) at a given moment in time (because it falls on the blue line).
The resulting curve is the sine wave, which plots the height of a point moving around the unit circle as a function of time.

 About Amphenol Sine Systems   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
In 1970, General Motors was the first to grant Sine approval to produce electrical interconnect assemblies for their industrial controls and machine tools - Sine was well on its way to becoming a force to be reckoned with in cable and connector circles.
During the 1980's, Sine's sales, employee numbers and square footage continued to grow and a new organization called The Sine Electro-Mold company would be established to focus on the pour urethane and injection molding services many of Sine's customers required.
Amphenol began preliminary negotiations in early of 1996 concluding that the acquisition of Sine would be the ideal strategy with which to expand their share of the interconnect and cable assembly market.

 Sine Wave Modulation Synthesis for Programmers
The smallest building block of any sound in the real world is the Sine wave, and according to Fourier theory, all sounds are constructed from a multitude of sine waves at differing frequencies and amplitudes.
Harmonic sounds generally consist of sine waves which are multiples of each other, while noises or inharmonic sounds consist of sine waves at inharmonic frequencies.
Of course with this new Feedback Sine Wave you could obtain better results with additive synthesis too, but this is not enough because you still require a lot of waveforms to achieve complex sounds.

 waveform - a Whatis.com definition - see also: sine wave
The most familiar AC waveform is the sine wave, which derives its name from the fact that the current or voltage varies with the sine of the elapsed time.
The sine wave is unique in that it represents energy entirely concentrated at a single frequency.
Household utility current has a sine waveform with a frequency of 60 Hz in most countries including the United States, although in some countries it is 50 Hz.

Developed by John Elhers, the Mesa Sine Wave utilizes two sine plots to illustrate if the market is a cycle mode or in a trend mode.
One useful attribute of the MESA Sine Wave indicator is that it will anticipate cycle mode turning points rather than waiting for confirmation as is seen with most other oscillators.
When the lead sine widens from the mesa sine the market is usually trending but quite often it is too late to act unless you are using something else to determine entry and exit.

 Mastervolt products > sine wave inverters   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Until now, however, the results were less than perfect as most inverters could only produce an output voltage that was not sine wave formed and the efficiency of the products were low.
The Mass Sine range is fitted with an energy-efficient circuit which maintains a high output with partial loads and almost switches off in the standby (or search) wait mode, thus using up virtually no energy from the battery but still supplying AC power.
Efficiency graph from a 500W Mastervolt sine wave inverter: a high efficiency mode is already achieved with a relatively low load.
