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
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
the horizontal line which measures the distance to which a projectile is thrown; the range
the extent of a movement measured from the starting point or position of equilibrium; -- applied especially to vibratory movements
an angle upon which the value of some function depends; -- a term used more especially in connection with elliptic functions
The amplitude of a periodic variable is a measure of its change over a single period. There are various definitions of amplitude, 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.
