You have to sample FASTER than the Nyquist rate.

For a sine wave the Nyquist rate is twice per period. So if you sample at t=0 and
t= T/2 , you are in trouble because A*sin(2*pi*t/T) = 0 at both places, losing any

That is why, in important(\$) work you must filter all frequencies at and above the Nyquist
frequency before using frequency transform analysis

Hope this helps.
