Jump to: navigation, search

Gain is a dimensionless quantity (something that has no units) that describes relative difference. It is most often used to refer to the increase in voltage from an electrical amplifier and in this situation it would be written with units of V/V (spoken as "Volts per Volt"). Gain is also commonly given in Decibels.
