I guess from my own understanding, peak-to-peak voltage is the difference between the maximum voltage level and the minimum voltage level.

From the question, the maximum voltage level is 10 V and the minimum voltage level is 2 V. Hence the peak-to-peak voltage is 10-2=8 V.

What is peak-to-peak voltage?

The choke works in conjunction with a starter. When you turn on the light, voltage is applied to the choke, and when the switch opens after a few seconds, it creates a high voltage across the contacts at each end of the tube. This starts the ionization of the gas, which glows. Once ionized, it continues producing light even when the voltage applied is only 120 VAC, the power line voltage.

What is choke and describe its function?

@All

In the given Sine wave,

Highest Peak voltage value = 10v.
Lowest Peak voltage value = 2v.
Therefore, Peak-to-peak = 10 - 2 = 8 volts.

Another values:

Highest Peak voltage value = 10v.
Lowest Peak voltage value = -5v.
Therefore, Peak-to-peak = 10 - (-5) = 15 volts.

Highest Peak voltage value = -10v.
Lowest Peak voltage value = -2v.
Therefore, Peak-to-peak = (-10) - (-2) = -10 + 2 = -8 = 8 volts.

Hope you understand. Have a nice day!
