    in/as a sinusoidal manner/fashion

    Hi,

    It changes in/as a sinusoidal manner/fashion.

    Which preposition is more suitable for the sentence above? It seems to me that "as" is more appropriate.

    I have no idea what the sentence is supposed to mean regardless of which of the four options you choose. Something can change "in a XXX manner/fashion".

    What is the "it" you're referring to?

    There is an output from an electronic circuit. Output is sinusoidal.

    I think I'll leave to someone with more electrical/electronic knowledge to deal with this one.

    The output waveform is sinusoidal. I wouldn't say that anything changes in a sinusoidal manner.

    The relative lengths of day and night for a given temperate zone latitude change in a sinusoidal manner with a period of one year.
