### Re: Intensity VS Frequency

The intensity of light is related to the amplitude, which is independent from wavelength and frequency. Therefore changing the intensity of light wouldn't alter the frequency/wavelength but rather the amplitude. The amplitude of a light's wave indicates the intensity or brightness of the light and b...

### Re: Amplitude?[ENDORSED]

I think amplitude is essentially the height of a wave from the average value or the rest position. It's independent from wavelength and frequency and determines the intensity of light. I think a good way of visualizing it is picturing the difference between the extreme values on the wave.
