A.Zahid-EE450 5 Parameters of a Periodic Signal Peak Amplitude (A) – Maximum strength of signal – Measured in volts or amps Frequency (f) – Rate of change of signal – Measured in Hertz (Hz) or cycles per second – The Period of a periodic signal, T = 1/f Phase ( φ ) – Relative position in time

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
