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.

Thanks for the feedback!

# The difference between a low amplitude sound wave and a high amplitude sound wave is what?

  The difference is that a low wave have long and smooth wave and a high wave has skinny and cramped togetther waves

# What are some Sounds with a high amplitude?

  Anything loud. (Tunguska, Crakatoa, bombs)

hi whats up

# If wave amplitudes are equal will high-frequency waves carry more or less energy than low-frequency waves?

if wave amplitudes are equal ,will high frequency waves carry more or less energy than low frequency waves

# Do waves that have low frequency have low amplitude?

Frequency and amplitude are separate.

# 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 are examples of high amplitude sounds?

music, earth qaukes and radio are some examples

# High frequency and a low amplitude represents what kind of sound?

High pitched and quiet

# What does a sound wave with high amplitude have?

if high amplitude was found in reservoir after injected water what that mean?

# Can a low frequency wave have high amplitude?

Of course and vice versa.

# Can low frequency have a large amplitude?

Yes, but I don't remember how.

# Are high amplitude sounds higher than low amplitude sounds?

Yes. They are higher in amplitude. We perceive them as "louder", but this has no connection with the pitch of the sound.

# What is the difference between a sound of low pitch and high pitch amplitude or frequency?

Frequency. Amplitude is for loudness.
In Science

Loud sounds.
