Sine Wave

Any curve plotted along an axis where the y-value moves above and below zero at a rate of y = sin(x). The Composite Index of Lagging Indicators is thought to be roughly a sine wave because interest rates and inflation, which make up the index, move in relation to each other in a way resembling the sine.

Therefore CW sinewave excitation signal was excluded from further evaluation.
Each row contains 8 pairs of circular patches, one of which contains the sinewave grating while the other is blank.

Viscosity of the polymer solution and that of the solvent was measured using a Sinewave Vibro SV-10 viscometer (A and D Company, Japan), as previously reported [31].
This technique uses the two measured signals [T.sub.1] and [T.sub.2] to trigger an analogto-digital converter (DAC) to sample one sinewave signal generated from the local oscillator directly.
This involved two Rb clocks placed approximately 500 m apart with a 5 MHz sinewave RF signal propagating between the clocks via a nitrogen filled coaxial cable buried in the ground and maintained at a constant pressure of ~2 psi.
The comparison of the sinewave versus the acceleration waveform can also be thought of in terms of predictability.
For example, it can output a 3.3V DC voltage with a 300mVpp AC sinewave riding on top of it.
As sinewave surfer and synthesiser symbiant, this is his first Dublin show in a decade and will be an Irish debut for his spectacular new audiovisual LeD show.
During forging there are clearly distinct chopped off tips of the sinewave, which indicates that the increased strain also increased the deviation from the ideal position (Fig.5).
To see what I'd be getting for my money, I asked Scott to work up a quote for a starter system suitable for, in his words, an "active family." The heart of the 24-volt system he designed includes six of the abovementioned 220-watt solar panels with a pole mounting system (minus the pole); an OutBack custom power center built around a 3,500-watt sinewave inverter and a 60-amp MPPT charge controller; eight Trojan L-16 batteries, and various other goodies.
Due to the low cost of the typical line-interactive UPS, the typical battery inverter output is a distorted sinewave having a high level of harmonic distortion.
