What is the period of s(x)=sin of x over [0,2pi]?

    Period T of a function is the minimum value of T ≠ 0 where you have 

    sin(x+T) = sinx for each x belongins to the domain.

    In our case

    sin(x+T) = sinx for x∈[0,2π] iff T=0

    so our function is not periodic.


    f(x):ℝ→ℝ defined as

    f(x) = sinx

    is periodic where T= 2π

    but s(x) is by no means periodic.
