(angle written as $) V1=100sin(300t) V2=150cos (300t) Using R sin (wt +$) = a cos(wt) + bsin (wt) then putting in the values taken from above it becomes R sin (300t + \$) = 150cos(300t) +100sin(300t) so then R= ?a^2 + b^2 -----> R= ?150^2 + 100^2 R=180 My question is how does this change if both V1 and V2 use a sin function isstead of the 1 cos and 1 sin function used in the example above? Thankyou March 26th, 2014, 01:14 PM #2 Senior Member   Joined: Jun 2013 From: London, England Posts: 1,316 Thanks: 116 Re: Adding Sin waves You mean if: V1 = 100sin(100t) V2 = 150sin(100t) Then V1 + V2 = 250sin(100t), which has a max of 250.

(In my two graphs, there is also a phase shift, so the maximum is not simply the two indices added together.)
