Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the phase shift...isnt its c/b so wouldnt it be pi/1??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes you're right ! for, Asin(Bx + C) phase shift = C/B

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03sin(x/2 + pi) here B = 1/2, C = pi just plugin :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0C/B = pi/1/2 = 2pi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0np.. just remember that, since coefficient of x is a fraction, here, its period is more. and hence phase difference also will be more than the the constant term(pi here)
