Period is how long it takes for the sine and cosine functions to restart repeating themselves. Both have a period of 2pi (360 degrees).

You can invent any function, to make it periodic. Commonly used functions that are periodic include all the trigonometric functions such as sin and cos (period 2 x pi), tan (period pi). Also, when you work with complex numbers, the exponential function (period 2 x pi x i).

y = sin(-x)Amplitude = 1Period = 2 pi

A nonconstant function is called periodic if there exists a number that you can add to (or subtract from) the argument and get the same result. The smallest such positive number is called the period. That is, nonconstant function f(x) is periodic, if and only if f(x) = f(x + h) for some real h. The smallest positive such h is the period. For example, the sine function has period 2*pi, and the function g(x) := [x] - x has period 1.

The period increases as the square root of the length.
