### Difference Between Wavelength and Amplitude

// Mar 3rd, 2012
Wavelength vs Amplitude   Wavelength and amplitude are two properties of waves and vibrations. Wavelength is a property of a wave but the amplitude is a property of a wave as well as an oscillation. The concepts of wavelength and amplitude are widely used in fields such as waves and vibrations, communication,...

### Difference Between Amplitude and Magnitude

// Oct 14th, 2011
Amplitude vs Magnitude   Amplitude and magnitude are two fundamental measurements in mechanics and vectors. A good understanding in amplitude and magnitude is required, to understand the concepts contained in vectors and wave mechanics fully. Amplitude and magnitude may sound similar, but these two are very different...

### Difference Between Amplitude and Frequency

// Oct 13th, 2011
Amplitude vs Frequency   Amplitude and frequency are two of the basic properties of periodic motions. A proper understanding in these concepts is required in the study of motions such as simple harmonic motions and damped harmonic motions. In this article, we are going to discuss what frequency and amplitude...

### Difference Between Resonance and Natural Frequency

// Sep 15th, 2011
Resonance vs Natural Frequency Resonance and natural frequency are two very important topics discussed under the topic waves and vibrations. It also plays a vital part in fields such as circuit theory, disaster management, engineering and even life sciences. This article will try to discuss these two phenomena,...

### Difference Between Frequency and Period

// Aug 19th, 2011
Frequency vs Period Frequency and period are two fundamental parameters of waves. If one of them is given, the other can be derived. A wave is a propagation of energy through space where each point in the path is oscillated. In the case of mechanical waves, the matter oscillate, electric field and magnetic field...

### Difference Between Pitch and Tone

// Jul 9th, 2011
Pitch vs Tone Sound and vision are two of the important ways we get to know about the world. In fact, most of our communication with others takes place through spoken words and we make the most of our sense of hearing to grasp the meaning of all the sounds we hear in our daily life. All sounds are not equal....

### Difference Between Oscillation and Vibration

// Apr 25th, 2011
Oscillation vs Vibration In the world of physics of sound and movement the terms oscillation and vibration occupy an important place. Both oscillation and vibration are seen in our daily life and sometimes they are beneficial and at times detrimental. Oscillation of a body is generally in a to and fro manner...
