    Hey guys how are you all doing?

    I just joined this site, wondering if anyone can help me,please.

    If u have two different waves lets say, a Square and Triangular waveform at the same period, What methods are there to compare them?

    Regards :)

    Two spring to mind:

    Power - which is the area under each graph over a given period, i.e. the integral of the waveform function between time t1 and t2.

    Amplitude - the peak value of the waveform.

    Frequency though that depends on how you measure it.

    I would have said frequency, however the opening post states "a Square and Triangular waveform at the same period" - hence of the same frequency.
