A typical trigonometric function such as

f(x) = a sin k(x-φ)

has the following definitions:

amplitude = |a|, or the absolute value of a

period = 2π/k

phase shift = φ

For example,

y = 3 sin 2(x-π/4)

has an amplitude of 3, period of 2π/2=π, and phase shift of π/4 to the right.

So for y = -2 sin x,

the amplitude would be |-2| = 2.
