What is Amplitude?

What is amplitude?

We already understand by now that sound is made by pushing air molecules together in varying degrees of strength, this is amplitude. For example if something is struck really hard the wave will carry some of that energy through the air and it will sound louder than if it is struck gently. Sound waves with the same frequency can have different amplitudes.
