 ```A sine wave has a voltage of 63v after 22 degrees of rotation.What is the maximum voltage reached by this waveform.``` ```Hi joe209-ga, The sine of 22 degrees is approximately 0.374607, which means that at 22 degrees, the voltage is 0.374607 of its maximum. The maximum will therefore be 63 volts divided by 0.374607, or 168.176 volts. "Generation of sine-wave voltage" http://www.tpub.com/content/neets/14184/css/14184_18.htm Google search: voltage "sine wave" degrees rotation ://www.google.com/search?q=voltage+%22sine+wave%22+degrees+rotation Regards, eiffel-ga``` ```That would be 168 volts peak. The RMS voltage is .707 times the peak voltage you have a 118 volt AC signal there, standard line current in the US. Note that our standard 118 volt RMS signal is actually 336 volts peak to peak.```
