The set of all possible outcome of an experiment while the precise outcome is unknown is called Sample Space and it is often denoted by S.

For a single coin: Sample Space, S = \lbrace H, T \rbrace
For two coins, Sample Space, S = \lbrace (H, H),(H,T),(T,H),(T,T) \rbrace
For a rolling dice, Sample Space, S = \lbrace 1,2,3,4,5,6 \rbrace
