The term amplitude is applied to the "strength" of some kind of harmonic motion. It could be mechanical energy, like sound or earthquake waves, or it could be electromagnetic, like radio waves or light. It could even be digital pulses, which are on's and off's. In all cases, the amplitude is a measure of the "power" or the "energy" in that motion or wave.

As regards high amplitude and low amplitude, this is a designation as the the "amount" of energy in a wave. There is a "zero" or "reference" in all motions of this kind, and amplitude could be viewed as a deviation from the "norm" in any case where the motion, movement or propagation of the "energy" is observed. Though without specific magnitude, we use "high" to denote "a lot" of energy, and "low" to specify that there is "a little" energy.

Why are there high and low voltage lines?

Because higher voltage can carry further. That answer is too simplistic. The actual reason is as follows: for any given load, the higher the supply voltage, the lower the re

Is squash a low-carb or high?

Squash is relatively low in carbohydrates. But it really depends on your definition of low carb because if you compare squash with a vegetable like broccoli, squash has a much

Does high pitch have low or high energy?

High pitch sound has high frequency. Frequency is not energy. The energy in a sound is related to its volume, not its pitch (frequency.) You may be confused by a related fact

What is high and low friction?

Low friction is made when you rub smooth surfaces together, and they slide easily. For example, a melting ice cube would easily slide across a glass table because there is low

What is amplitude?

Amplitude refers to the amount by which something is displaced fromthe middle of its periodic motion. It can mean the maximumdisturbance from the neutral position of a wave. I

Do loud sounds have a high amplitude?

Yes, amplitude is the maximum height from the undisturbed position of a wave to the crest or trough of a wave. A loud sound wil have a higher amplitude than a quiet sound.

What is high resistance and low resistance?

Low resistance lets electrons through easy, and high makes it harder for them to pass. Basically electricity is harder to flow through high resistance and vice versa.

Do shoes have a high or low friction?

Shoes have a higher amount of friction compared to other surfaces. If shoes did not have high friction, then people would be slipping and falling everywhere. I am sure shoe co

If a sound had a high amplitude and high frequency what would it sound like?

The sound would be like thunder, since thunder also has high amplitudes and frequency also. Usually at the begining of thunder you will listen cracking (krat..kat..krat .....

Is the pitch high or low if the frequency is low?

Pitch and frequency are simply different terms for the same thing  and are directly proportional.   The difference is that pitch is the subjective human perception  whil
