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

This might be a simple question but I am trying to find a good method of describing a data set. I have a data set of voltage vs time for a cycle, where voltage varies a lot. Would taking the average of voltage over the entire number of times be a good way of describing everything? Or are there other more accurate methods of getting a single and accurate voltage number for the whole cycle?

Thanks
