Note that the period is 1/360.(correct me if im wrong) As it seems to me,it would squeeze towards the origin.

Ah that's interesting. I'm curious to know why it started to open up. My guess is that when x = 1 it will start to widen. As with eg. sin(x/2) = 720 degree period.

The function is non-periodic and approaches 0 as x approaches

For x has to be a fraction <1, for n to be 1 or >1. n is a natural number. Hence if x is >1, the next time the graph goes towards zero after is when x goes towards infinity.
