intensity has definitions from the field of color
1
[ noun ] the amount of energy transmitted (as by acoustic or electromagnetic radiation)

Examples

"he adjusted the intensity of the sound" "they measured the station's signal strength"

Used in print

(Cornell H. Mayer, "Radio Emission of the Moon...)

The observed intensity of the radio_emission of Venus is much higher than the expected thermal intensity , although the spectrum indicated by measurements at wave_lengths near 3 cm and 10 cm is like that of a black_body at about 600 ` K .

The observed intensity of the radio_emission of Venus is much higher than the expected thermal intensity , although the spectrum indicated by measurements at wave_lengths near 3 cm and 10 cm is like that of a black_body at about 600 ` K .

Mars has been observed twice at about 3 - cm wave_length , and the intensity of the observed radiation is in reasonable agreement with the thermal radiation which might be predicted on the basis of the known temperature of Mars .

The low intensity of the radiation from Saturn has limited observations , but again the measured radiation seems to be consistent with a thermal origin .

No attempts to measure the radio_emission of the remaining planets have been reported , and , because of their distances , small diameters , or low_temperatures , the thermal radiation at radio wave_lengths reaching the earth from these sources is expected to be of very low intensity .

2
[ noun ] high level or degree; the property of being intense
