The amplitude is a characterizing deflection of an oscillation, the elongation. It is the deflection of a physical quantity, e.g. an electrical voltage

, from its rest position (0-point) to a positive or negative value. The amplitude (a) is specified in a physical quantity, for example as voltage, current, temperature, loudness

, etc., and has several criteria for evaluation such as the peak amplitude, peak-to-peak amplitude, etc. Amplitude

at time 't' and SS

amplitude The specification of the amplitude can be time-related, such as at a time 't', it can also refer to minimum or maximum values such as the peak or peak-to-peak amplitude.
