Amplitude

The amplitude of a periodic variable is a measure of its change over a single period (such as time or spatial period). There are various definitions of amplitude (see below), which are all functions of the magnitude of the difference between the variable`s extreme values. In older texts the phase is sometimes called the amplitude. ===Peak-to-peak....

amplitude

The displacement of a wave from zero. The maximum amplitude for a wave is the height of a peak or the depth of a trough, relative to the zero displacement line.

Amplitude

A digital audio file`s sound levels or electrical signal levels. It refers to the height of a waveform—the greater a sound wave's amplitude, the louder it sounds. Most software audio programs allow viewing the amplitude of the waveform for detailed editing.
