In the equation y=Asin(B(x-h)), A modifies the amplitude and B modifies the period; see sine and cosine transformations. The constant h does not change the amplitude or period (the shape) of the graph. It shifts the graph left (if h is negative) or right (if h is positive) and in the amount equal to h. The amount of horizontal shift is called the phase shift, which equals h.
