In an electrical outlet, the voltage, V, in volts, is given as a function of time, t, in seconds, by the formula(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

V = V_{0}sin(120pit)

What does V_{0}represent in terms of voltage?

Well, V_{0}is the amplitude, but I don't know what it represents in terms of voltage... I guess i'm just having trouble wording it.

Should it be "V_{0}represents the maximum voltage"?
