units of Amplitude Reference

Post by grabbitmedia » Fri Dec 02, 2016 7:17 am

for (int n = 0; n < 52920; n++){ F = Amplitude * sin(2 *pi*n* Frequency/44100) ; } what are the units of Amplitude ? I know Frequency is in Hz also what are the unit of F?

It's in whatever units. It depends on what you wrote your function for. If it's for electric field, it will be V/m. If its for position it will be in meters (or some other distance unit).

The unit of measurement of "F" will be the same as the unit of "Amplitude". Sin(x) is just a number without units.
