Oscillating Function

Shown is the graph of This sketch demonstrates why the limit of this function does not exist at 0. The function oscillates between -1 and 1 increasingly rapidly as . In a way you can think of the period of oscillation becoming shorter and shorter. Click the "Zoom In" button to see what happens as we get closer to . The graph becomes so dense it seems to fill the entire space. For this reason, the limit does not exist as there is no single value that the function approaches.
