Amplitude

From Chace Audio

A sound wave moving through the atmosphere pushes air. As the air in front of the wave gets compressed, the air pressure goes up. The magnitude of change in the air pressure from that sound wave is its amplitude. The bigger its amplitude, the louder the wave will sound.
