Term Category: Acoustics
Amplitude refers to the maximum extent of a sound wave's vibration, typically measured as the height of the wave from its equilibrium position to its highest point (peak) or its lowest point (trough). Amplitude directly relates to the perceived loudness of a sound; greater amplitude corresponds to a louder sound, while smaller amplitude corresponds to a softer sound.
