First you need to understand the Fourier Theorem. It says that a wave in the time domain, no matter how complex it looks can be transformed into an infinite sum of sinusoidals of single frequency and unique amplitude as depicted in the following figure:

The graph in the time domain is only one which tells you how the motor in vibrating as a whole where you have vibration amplitude versus time. That is you have a function of time f(t). Now in the Fourier transformed space what you see in graphs are the amplitude spectrum of the sinusoidal components which are present in your signal and the phase spectrum ...
