    sin is incorrect spelling, should be sine. as in sine wave or sinusoidal wave

    a sin is when you do something bad

    see they both start with the same letters :)

    sine wave is just a short way of writing sinusoidal wave

    There is no difference.

    A sinusoidal signal is the typical shape of AC voltage being provided to homes.
    Sine, and a Cosine, are simply mathematical equations that happen to have a sinusoidal shape when graphed appropriately.
