Gain means amplification. If a signal is applied to a circuit such as the amplifier shown above and the output of the circuit has a greater amplitude than the input signal, the circuit has gain. Gain is simply the ratio of the output to the input. For input (Vin) and output (Vout) voltages, voltage gain AV is expressed as follows:
