A Gravitational Wave's Strain (GW Strain) is a measure of its magnitude (i.e., amplitude), specifically, twice the delta of the distance between two objects as the wave passes, measured as a fraction of the normal distance, i.e., dimensionless. http://www.tapir.caltech.edu/~teviet/Waves/gwave.html Referenced by: Gravitational Wave (GW) |
