Volume can be difficult to quantify because each media file has a different baseline for its recorded or perceived audio level. Also, true audio volume as represented on the decibel scale is inherently logarithmic. You can think of the Volume property as representing the position value of an audio mixer slider control, with 0 being all the way down and 1 being all the way up.
