Consider the following equation for the fourier series:

f(t) = SUM k=1->infinity (Ck * sin(k*pi*t)

What is the meaning of the Ck terms?

What is the importance of the K=1 term?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Ck = Fourier Coefficents. They are the amplitudes of each term of the series, they will determine the shape of the final wave?

The k = 1 term is the "DC" or constant/mean of the series?
