A sine wave is a simple vertical line in the frequency domain because the horizontal axis of the frequency domain is frequency, and there is only one frequency, i.e. no harmonics, in a pure sine wave.

What is domain and domain range?

If you look at it on a graph, the domain is any value on the x-axis (horizontal line), while the range is any value on the y-axis (vertical line).

If a domain repeatable in function then this is not afuntion and if the range repeat then this is a function why?

Because, if the Domain(x-values) repeats, when graphed on a coordinate plane, there will be multiple dots in a vertical line. If you were to conduct the Vertical Line Test, and there are two points in one straight vertical line, this would not be a function. If the Range(y-values) repeats, this would be a function, because if the Domain is different, then there will be no points plotted in the same line.

What is a verticle line segment?

A vertical line goes straight up an down, so a vertical line segment is a line segment that goes straight up and down. Simple.

Can you do domain and range on an undefined slope?

Yes a undefined slope is a vertical line so the domain would be a single number and the range would be all reals

What is the name of the vertical line?

A vertical line!

How do you use a vertical line test to determine if a graph represents a function?

A vertical test line is useful because, by definition, a function has one and only one result value for each input value. If you can find a vertical line that intersects the curve of the line, then it is not a function. A simple example is a circle.

What line is perpendicular to a vertical line?

A horizontal line is perpendicular to a vertical line.

What is a vertical ray?

It is a line that is vertical from a line segment or a intersecting line .

What is a line perpendicular to the vertical?

A horizontal line is a line perpendicular to the vertical.

What is the slope of a line parallel to a vertical line?

A vertical line has an undefined slope. For the line to be parallel to a vertical line, the slopes would have to be the same. Therefore, the line parallel to a vertical line also has an undefined slope.
