Algebraically calculate the Rise Time value for the sinusoidal signal at an arbitrary frequency [itex]f_0[/itex] (expressed in Hz). Assume that the signal has zero average, that is(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]V_{min}\,=\,-V_{max}[/tex]

Express the Rise Time in units of the period [itex]T\,=\,\frac{1}{f_0}[/itex].

MY WORK SO FAR:

[tex]\left(V_{min}\,+\,0.9\,V_{ppk}\right)\,-\,\left(V_{min}\,+\,0.1\,V_{ppk}\right)[/tex]

[tex]V_{ppk}\,=\,V_{max}\,-\,V_{min}[/tex]

[tex]RISE\,=\,0.8\,V_{max}\,-\,0.8\,V_{min}[/tex]

[tex]RUN\,=\,T[/tex]

SLOPE equals RISE over RUN, but I don't know how to relate the two things to get an equation for the answer.

The problem goes on to ask us to calculate the Rise Time value in msec for the sinusoidal signal at 500Hz. But I need the equation in order to solve it. Please help!
