12. The slope that they are plotting is the physical slope of sinusoidal waveshape (not to be confused with the more abstract “slope” of its time development; the physical slope is an x -derivative whereas the more abstract “slope” would be the t -derivative). Thus, where the figure shows a maximum slope equal to 0.2 (with no unit), it refers to the maximum of the following function: d y d x = d y m sin
