  • Amplitude refers to the distance of the maximum vertical displacement of the wave from its mean position. Larger the amplitude, the higher the energy. In sound, amplitude refers to the magnitude of compression and expansion experienced by the medium the sound wave is travelling through. This amplitude is perceived by our ears as loudness.
  • Through amplitude you get to know the size of the Vibration.A greater amplitude will mean a louder sound and smaller will be a dim sound ( a very low amplitude can indicate silence), amplitude itself can not affect the sound, it is just a way of telling about the sound's loudness.
