A wave with high amplitude?

Has more energy than a wave with low amplitude.


Why does a wave with a large amplitude carry more energy than one with small amplitude?

It is the same as why an object at higher place had more energy than one on the floor. Energy is the difference of potential, for kinetic energy example it is the height, greater height is greater energy. For the wave, energy could be stored in amplitude and frequency. Low amplitude or no amplitude is no energy and any amplitude higher than the zero amplitude would have more energy.


Is amplitude a measure of a waves energy?

Not exactly. The amplitude of a mechanical wave means how much the particles move from their resting position. The amplitude of an electrical wave specificies how much the voltage or current varies, etc. The amount of energy for a specific wave does depend on the amplitude - more amplitude means more energy. However, the energy also depends on other factors.


Is the amount of energy in a sound wave called amplitude?

No; depending on how you look at it, the amplitude is how much particles move back and forth, OR how much the pressure changes, as a sound wave goes through. Other things being equal, more amplitude means more energy, but amplitude is not the only factor. Also, and once again if other things are equal, energy is proportional to the SQUARE of the amplitude.

What is the relationship between a wave's amplitude and energy?

The energy and the amplitude are related in such a way that, the greater the amplitude the greater is the energy. The sound pressure amplitude tells about how loud the tone will be.


The amplitude of a mechanical wave shows?

how much energy the wave is transporting


What is high and low amplitude?

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.As regards sound or electromagnetic energy, use the links below to read similar questions and learn more.


Why a sound wave with a large amplitude is more likely to damage your hearing than one with a small amplitude?

Because the amplitude is what decides how much energy there is in the wave. Large amplitude = lots of energy. And lots of energy hitting something(like your ear) is more likely to do damage than a little energy hitting something.


What property of a wave is directly proportional to its energy?

Frequency.


What does the energy of a mechanical wave depend on?

In fact, energy of the wave is one interpretation of a wave's amplitude. Many versions of amplitude exist. If amplitude has a specific meaning and a specific unit...it needs to be specified. Some examples are displacement amplitude, energy amplitude, pressure amplitude, restoring force amplitude, intensity, decibel level, etcetera.


Does increase in amplitude effect energy?

Energy is usually necessary to increase the amplitude.
