Amplitude

Amplitude is the total height of the wave being measured from the top peak to the neutral or zero. Here, we measure amplitude in volts, which describes the potential or electrical tension between the peak and zero. Amplitude as well as frequency applies to all the waves we are dealing with.

Alternating current (AC), represented by a sine wave, is changing amplitude and direction (from negative to positive) every half a cycle.
