What is a sine wave?
  • A constant-voltage, varying-current wave.
  • Correct Answer
    A wave whose amplitude at any given instant can be represented by the projection of a point on a wheel rotating at a uniform speed.
  • A wave following the laws of the trigonometric tangent function.
  • A wave whose polarity changes in a random manner.
