(n.)
The horizontal line which measures the distance to which a projectile is thrown; the range.
  
(n.)
The extent of a movement measured from the starting point or position of equilibrium; -- applied especially to vibratory movements.
  
(n.)
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.
  
(n.)
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.
  
(n.)
State of being ample; extent of surface or space; largeness of dimensions; size.
  
(n.)
Of extent of means or resources.
  
(n.)
Of extent of capacity or intellectual powers.
  
(n.)
Largeness, in a figurative sense; breadth; abundance; fullness.
  
(n.)
An angle upon which the value of some function depends; -- a term used more especially in connection with elliptic functions.

amplitude
\am"pli*tude\ (&?;), n. [l. amplitudo, fr. amplus: cf. f. amplitude. see ample.]
1. state of being ample; extent of surface or space; largeness of dimensions; size. the cathedral of lincoln is a magnificent structure, proportionable to the amplitude of the diocese.
2. largeness, in a figurative sense; breadth; abundance; fullness. (a) of extent of capacity or intellectual powers. "amplitude of mind." "amplitude of comprehension." (b) of extent of means or resources. "amplitude of reward."
3. (astron.) (a) 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. (b) 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.
4. (gun.) the horizontal line which measures the distance to which a projectile is thrown; the range.
5. (physics) the extent of a movement measured from the starting point or position of equilibrium; -- applied especially to vibratory movements.
6. (math.) an angle upon which the value of some function depends; -- a term used more especially in connection with elliptic functions.

Electronic Music Glossary
Amplitude is a term used to describe the amount of a signal. It can relate to volume in an audio signal or the amount of voltage in an electrical signal.
Glossary of Electronic Music Terms
The amount of a signal. Amplitude is measured by determining the amount of fluctuation in air pressure (of a sound), voltage (of an electrical signal), or numerical data (in a digital application). When the signal is in the audio range, amplitude is perceived as loudness.
Pablo Aguilar
Amplitude Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
Wikipedia English - The Free Encyclopedia
The amplitude of a periodic variable is a measure of its change over 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 difference between the variable's extreme values. In older texts the phase is sometimes called the amplitude.
