waves;
therefore
we
refer
to
 harmonic
components
as
sine
waves
in
the
discussion
below.




 
 Each
harmonic
component
is
a
sine
wave
at
the
frequency
multiple
of

 f0
=
the
frequency
of
the
saw­tooth
waveform.

 
 The
sinusoid
at
the
frequency
f0

is
called
the
fundamental;

 the
sinusoid
at
the
double
frequency
2⋅f0

is
called
the
second
harmonic;

 the
sinusoid
at
the
triple
frequency
3⋅f0

is
called
the
third
harmonic,
etc.

 
 The
peak
amplitude
of
each
harmonic
component
is
proportional
to

 A
