Enter the amplitude, angular frequency, and phase angle into the calculator to determine the phase difference.
Phase Difference Formula
The following formula is used to calculate the phase difference.
PD = A * sin ( ω * Φ )
- Where PD is the phase difference
- A is the amplitude of the waveform
- ω is the angular frequency (rad/s)
- Φ is the phase angle (rad)
Phase Difference Definition
A phase difference is defined as angle at which a waveform has shifted from some reference point along the x-axis.
Phase Difference Example
How to calculate a phase difference?
- First, determine the amplitude.
Calculate the amplitude of the wave.
- Next, determine the angular frequency.
Calculate the angular frequency of the wave.
- Next, determine the phase angle.
Calculate the phase angle.
- Finally, calculate the phase difference.
Calculate the phase difference using the equation above.
A phase difference, also known as phase shift, is the angle that a waveform has shifted from a reference point along the x-axis.
A phase shift is the same as a phase difference.
A phase angle is the angle representing a difference in phase. 360 degrees is one complete cycle.
