Pure Tone
A single
frequency
tone with no
harmonic
content.
A sinusoidal wave or sine tone.
The time it takes for the waveform to complete one cycle is the
period
of the waveform, while the distance the waveform travels through its medium is its
wavelength.
sine tone (1 kHz)
The Fourier theorem states that any periodic waveform can be analysed as the sum of a series of sine waves with frequencies in a harmonic series and at specific
phase
relationships to each other.
