**Amplitude and Intensity**
My professor posted this:
$\displaystyle I = \langle \left| A(t) \right|^2 \rangle
= \int\limits_t \left| A(t) \right|^2 \, dt$
Since LaTeX doesn't seem to be working:
I = <|A(t)|^2> = Integral over t of |A(t)|^2 dt
OK, I can accept this relation between intensity and amplitude. But isn't there a 1/t factor missing to convert the integral sum to a mean average?
Or am I not understanding this? thanks!
