## What is phase shift on a graph?

Phase Shift is a shift when the graph of the sine function and cosine function is shifted left or right from their usual position or we can say that in phase shift the function is shifted horizontally how far from the usual position. Generally, functions are shifted (π/2) from the usual position.

### What is the equation for a sine graph?

The graphs of functions defined by y = sin x are called sine waves or sinusoidal waves. Notice that the graph repeats itself as it moves along the x-axis.

#### What is the difference between a sine and cosine graph?

In a cosine graph, a positive or negative number vertically flips the graph and determines whether the graph starts at the maximum (if it’s positive) or minimum (if it’s negative). For a sine graph, a positive or negative number vertically flips the graph like it does with a cosine graph.

**What is the formula for phase shift?**

The phase shift equation is ps = 360 * td / p, where ps is the phase shift in degrees, td is the time difference between waves and p is the wave period.

**What is a phase shift graph?**

The phase shift is the amount of horizontal displacement of the function from its original position. In simpler terms, it means how far the original graph has moved towards the right or left. A positive phase shift means the graph has moved to the left, while a negative phase shift means the graph has moved to the right.

## What is horizontal phase shift?

A phase shift is a horizontal shift for a periodic function. If a periodic function is shifted a multiple of one full period, so that it is identical to the first function, it is said to be in phase.

### What is a shift in a graph?

A shift is a rigid translation in that it does not change the shape or size of the graph of the function. All that a shift will do is change the location of the graph. A vertical shift adds/subtracts a constant to/from every y-coordinate while leaving the x-coordinate unchanged.
