I just started learning Simple Harmonic Motion and encountered a word Phase Constant [itex]\phi[/itex] .(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Actually it appeared as

f(t)=rsin([itex]\omega t+\phi[/itex])

I am confused whether phase constant is actually the initial position of the particle(which execute SHM) and therefore the point on graph at time=0 or not!!!
