For longitudinal waves, amplitude is the distance from rest to crest.

Explanation:

Longitudinal Waves.

In a longitudinal wave the particle displacement is parallel to the direction of wave propagation.

longitudinal waves properties includes wavelength, amplitude, period, frequency and wave speed. However instead of peaks and troughs, longitudinal waves have compressions and rarefactions.

The amplitude of a wave refers to the maximum amount of displacement of a particle on the medium from its rest position. In a sense, the amplitude is the distance from rest to crest. Similarly, the amplitude can be measured from the rest position to the trough position.
