magnitude : The portion of the frequency response or impedance of a device that represents the amplitude is called the magnitude, as distinguished from the phase, which is the other part. Precisely, the term magnitude only applies to complex quantities, i.e., quantities characterized by both a magnitude and a phase. For noncomplex quantities, the term amplitude is used.
