Amplitudenoun

The measure of something's size, especially in terms of width or breadth; largeness, magnitude.

Voltnoun

In the International System of Units, the derived unit of electrical potential and electromotive force (voltage); the potential difference across a conductor when a current of one ampere uses one watt of power. Symbol: V

Amplitudenoun

(mathematics) The maximum absolute value of the vertical component of a curve or function, especially one that is periodic.

Voltnoun

A circular tread; a gait by which a horse going sideways round a centre makes two concentric tracks.

Amplitudenoun

(physics) The maximum absolute value of some quantity that varies.

Voltnoun

(fencing) A sudden movement to avoid a thrust.

Amplitudenoun

(astronomy) The arc of the horizon between the true east or west point and the center of the sun, or a star, at its rising or setting. At the rising, the amplitude is eastern or ortive: at the setting, it is western, occiduous, or occasive. It is also northern or southern, when north or south of the equator.

Voltnoun

A circular tread; a gait by which a horse going sideways round a center makes two concentric tracks.

Amplitudenoun

(astronomy) The arc of the horizon between the true east or west point and the foot of the vertical circle passing through any star or object.

Voltnoun

A sudden movement to avoid a thrust.

Amplitudenoun

(firearms) The horizontal line which measures the distance to which a projectile is thrown; the range.

Voltnoun

The unit of electro-motive force; - defined by the International Electrical Congress in 1893 and by United States Statute as, that electro-motive force which steadily applied to a conductor whose resistance is one ohm will produce a current of one ampère. It is practically equivalent to

Amplitudenoun

State of being ample; extent of surface or space; largeness of dimensions; size.

βThe cathedral of Lincoln . . . is a magnificent structure, proportionable to the amplitude of the diocese.β;

Voltnoun

a unit of potential equal to the potential difference between two points on a conductor carrying a current of 1 ampere when the power dissipated between the two points is 1 watt; equivalent to the potential difference across a resistance of 1 ohm when 1 ampere of current flows through it

Amplitudenoun

Largeness, in a figurative sense; breadth; abundance; fullness.

Voltnoun

the SI unit of electromotive force, the difference of potential that would carry one ampere of current against one ohm resistance.

Amplitudenoun

The arc of the horizon between the true east or west point and the center of the sun, or a star, at its rising or setting. At the rising, the amplitude is eastern or ortive: at the setting, it is western, occiduous, or occasive. It is also northern or southern, when north or south of the equator.

Voltnoun

variant spelling of volte

Amplitudenoun

The horizontal line which measures the distance to which a projectile is thrown; the range.

Voltverb

make a quick movement to avoid a thrust.

Amplitudenoun

The extent of a movement measured from the starting point or position of equilibrium; - applied especially to vibratory movements.

Volt

The volt (symbol: V) is the derived unit for electric potential, electric potential difference (voltage), and electromotive force. It is named after the Italian physicist Alessandro Volta (1745β1827).

Amplitudenoun

An angle upon which the value of some function depends; - a term used more especially in connection with elliptic functions.

Amplitudenoun

(physics) the maximum displacement of a periodic wave

Amplitudenoun

the property of copious abundance

Amplitudenoun

greatness of magnitude

Amplitude

The amplitude of a periodic variable is a measure of its change in a single period (such as time or spatial period). There are various definitions of amplitude (see below), which are all functions of the magnitude of the differences between the variable's extreme values.
