Definitions for "MAGNITUDE"
Size. Magnitude being purely relative, nothing is large and nothing small. If everything in the universe were increased in bulk one thousand diameters nothing would be any larger than it was before, but if one thing remain unchanged all the others would be larger than they had been. To an understanding familiar with the relativity of magnitude and distance the spaces and masses of the astronomer would be no more impressive than those of the microscopist. For anything we know to the contrary, the visible universe may be a small part of an atom, with its component ions, floating in the life- fluid (luminiferous ether) of some animal. Possibly the wee creatures peopling the corpuscles of our own blood are overcome with the proper emotion when contemplating the unthinkable distance from one of these to another.
See magnitude of a star, below.
The strength or size of an event. Usually used when discussing earthquakes or hurricanes. seismic
A property common to both vectors and scalars. In the graphical representation of a vector, the vectorâ€(tm)s magnitude is equal to the length of the arrow.
The "amount" associated with a vector; the vector stripped of any information about its direction.
The magnitude indicates the current value of a quantity.
Extent of dimensions; size; -- applied to things that have length, breadth, and thickness.
That which has one or more of the three dimensions, length, breadth, and thickness.
Greatness; grandeur.

Anything of which greater or less can be predicated, as time, weight, force, and the like.

The magnitude of an explosive eruption is the total mass of material erupted in an event.
Magnitude of a spell is calculated by dividing its spell level by 10 and rounding down (as is standard in d20). Conveniently, magnitude roughly corresponds to the level the spell would be in D&D. Thus, a magnitude 4 spell would be roughly equivalent to a level 4 spell in D&D.
Greatness, in reference to influence or effect; importance; as, an affair of magnitude.
how large something is, usually referring to very large things The magnitude of the voltage will increase considerably.
relative importance; "a problem of the first magnitude"
