You are listening to music in your room and you are asked to turn down the volume of your music. When you turn down the volume what will happen to the sound waves' amplitude?

    Think of waves of the ocean. If they get less powerful, what happens to their size?

    the waves get smaller

    the amplitude is the distance from the center to the peak |dw:1444261451148:dw|

    so you can see the amplitude decreasing as the volume decreases

    what is the ampitude?

    do you see in my drawing how it's the distance from the center line to the peak of the wave?

    so would that mean that when you turn the volume down you can at least hear your surroundings but if your music is like super loud you can't hear a thing

    `so would that mean that when you turn the volume down you can at least hear your surroundings but if your music is like super loud you can't hear a thing` yes that's correct. But they want you to describe the waves and amplitudes
