Why are waves with a larger amplitude have more energy? And also, why are waves with a smaller wave length have less energy?

Please help me!!!!!!!!

Amplitudes are shown on an oscilloscope. It measures the time, frequency, volts, pv, pvp, etc on equipment. But frequency waves with larger amplitudes doesn't have more energy. It has more voltage than the one with a shorter wave. Look at this picture. The horizontal line represents 0 volts. The larger one has more volts than the shorter one.
