Create one example of a function within the context of a real-world science application (i.e., physics, biology, chemistry, etc.) that contains an oscillating discontinuity,

2. Relevant equations

y=sin (1/x)

3. The attempt at a solution

I would like to use the simple equation y=sin (1/x) as my function with oscillating discontinuity and understand that the point of discontinuity will occur at x=0 because the point of discontinuity occurs when the denominator is equal to zero, but I am stuck on writing a "SCIENCE Function Equation, in which the graph of the function would look the same as this. Please help!
