    I understand how to calculate phase difference on a displacement/distance graph, but how do I calculate it on a displacement/time graph?

    One complete cycle of the wave is 360o.

    So the phase difference is simply given by the ratio of the time difference between the same points on the two waves compared x 360o or 2 pi if in radians.
