what is a phase?

Asked by Ayushi Tiwari | 5th Nov, 2013, 05:29: PM

Expert Answer:


Phase is basically the angular displacement of a particle.

For example,

y =A sin(?t - kx + ? )

The quantity (?t - kx + ?) is called the phase of the wave. The phase determines the displacement of the wave at any position and at any instant.
