I tend to think of sensitivity as more likely to be used in the context of an analog signal as in the sensitivity of the output of an opamp to the variation in gain, temperature, or a particular component value. I tend to use the term resolution when referring to the result of converting an analog signal to a digital representation such as when referring to the output of an A-to-D converter, we state that it has a resolution of 10 bits. That typically means the converter can divide the analog signal applied to its input into 2 raised to the tenth power unique 10-bit digital values.wt is the difference between resolution and sensitivity in a instrument ?
