    Hi.

    Why is it that when adding two sine waves of same amplitude but out of phase is it 2 * Amplitude * sin(theta/2)

    How do I get to theta/2

    Can someone point me to the derivation of this please?

    Thanks

    It comes from the trigonometric identity
    sin(A) + sin (B) =2* sin((A+B)/2) * cos ((A-B)/2)
