Imagining the function sin(2[tex]\pi[/tex]ft + [tex]\phi[/tex]) ...
...you're saying that the whole argument (2[tex]\pi[/tex]ft + [tex]\phi[/tex]) is what so called "phase"?
So why do people (my lecturers included) keep saying that the phase in the above function is the [tex]\phi[/tex]?
As you might imagine, this leads me to some confusion...
PS: Thanks for your reply
