# Question #576a4

##### 1 Answer

No, there is no phase shift, although there is an offset and magnitude.

#### Explanation:

The most common reference sinusoid function is the

graph{cos(x) [-10, 10, -2, 2]}

We should be able to generate any general oscillation using this function by adding some change to one or more of the parameters. The full parameterization of the

where

and

Let's take an example where we have changed some of these parameters:

Looking at the formula that we were given:

we can see that there is a change in amplitude, and an offset, but no change in frequency or phase.
