Various physicists have attempted to measure the sensitiveness of the ear by estimating the amplitude of the molecular movements necessary to call forth the feeblest audible sound.
Intensity depends on the amplitudeof the vibration, and a greater or lesser amplitude of the vibration will cause a corresponding movement of the transmitting apparatus, and a corresponding intensity of excitation of the terminal apparatus.
As it meets with resistance in passing upwards, itsamplitude therefore diminishes, and in this way the distance up the scala through which the wave progresses will be determined by its amplitude.

Most of them are short poems; most of them seem to be wanting in the breadth of treatment, in the amplitude of substance, that are proper to epic poetry.
The documents, as far as they go, bear out the view that in the Western German tongues, or at any rate in England, there was a development of heroic poetry tending to a greater amplitude of narration.
This depends only on the constitution of the system, whereas the amplitude and epoch will vary with the initial circumstances.
The variation of period with amplitude was at one time a hindrance to the accurate performance of pendulum clocks, since the errors produced are cumulative.
The abnormal amplitude is greater, and is restricted to a narrower range of frequency, the smaller the friction.
If the friction be small the amplitude becomes relatively very great if the imposed period approximate to a free period.
The numbers correspond to an amplitude of 10 centimetres and a period of two seconds.

The first of these, and in general the more considerable, has a period of about 427 days, and a semi-amplitude of about 0".
That the amplitudeof the inequality has remained constant for the last half century.
But we know that there are perturbations, and I do not see how one can doubt that they have so acted as to increase the amplitude of the variation since 1840.

And once more it appears in the glory and amplitude of the inheritance, of which the land of Canaan was but the type, prepared of God's infinite bounty for all who are His children by faith.
The amplitude of these vibrations is exceedingly small, even in relation to the wave-length, small as these last are.
If, in fact, the amplitude of the vibrations acquired a noticeable value in comparison with the wave-length, the speed of propagation should increase with the amplitude.
If, on the contrary, the amplitude is sufficiently small, there exists a speed limit which is the same in a large pipe and in free air.
The greatest amplitude of motion of a diaphragm is, or is wished to be, at its center, and its edge ordinarily is fixed.
By this means the moving parts of the bell constitute in effect a reed tongue, which has a natural rate of vibration at which it may easily be made to vibrate with sufficient amplitude to strike the gongs.
The intensity of any light depends upon the amplitude of the corresponding vibration, and its color depends upon the wave length.
There has been a condensation of energy produced by the reflection, and this increased energy is shown by the greater amplitude of the wave.
The 24-hour term in the Fourier analysis is of smaller amplitude in the quiet days, and its phase angle is on the average about 6 deg.
One feature, the large amplitude of the regular diurnal inequality, is already illustrated by the data for Jan Mayen and South Victoria Land in Tables VIII.
This accounts for the prominence of the minimum in the diurnal variation of the inclination at Kolaba and Batavia, and the large amplitude of the range.
The applications of Ellis's and Wolf's methods relate directly only to the amplitude of the diurnal changes.
The amplitude of the horizontal force range appears less at intermediate stations, such as Tiflis, than at stations in either higher or lower latitudes.
The amplitude of the diurnal change usually varies considerably with the season of the year.
The amplitude and duration of the disturbances of the "special type" varied a good deal; in several cases the disturbing force considerably exceeded 200[gamma].
There may be to and fro movements of considerable amplitude occupying under an hour, and the hour may come exactly at the crest or at the very lowest part of the trough.
