a sin is when you do something bad

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.
