    \[y= 1sin2x\] well have you tried it yet

    @dpaInc Wave analysis doesn't work like this, if you separate the 2x like you did then it gives you the combined equation of two waves. That means what we have is the result of interference between two waves. Isolate the two waves and then find the net amplitude (sum of individual amplitudes) and you'll be surprised to get 1 again.
