Hello guys(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am having a problem understanding the wording of a question, perhaps someone can help me explain it.

The alternating voltage of a generator is represented by the equation

E = Eo sin wt,

where E is in volts, Eo = 346V, w = 685 rad/s, and t is in seconds.

Find the voltage output of the source. Answer in units of V.

I've found that w = 2pif where f is the frequency of the generator, which gives me 109.021 Hz in the frequency, that was part 1 of the problem. However I can not find any formula that relate to this voltage output. I thought at first it was asking for E and to use Eo and sin 685 to get the answer but that was not the right one. What do you guys think the question is asking for?
