Gravitational Wave Strain

(GW Strain)
(a measure of the magnitude of a gravitational wave)

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.
