Correct spelling, explanation: the core word for the correct spelling is commit (which means to carry out or to engage) to which we added the noun suffix -ment. This suffix means a state of something, a process, or a goal of an action. The verb commit has got one t so the form
committment is incorrect.
Definition of commitment:
1. noun, obligation, or promise to do something
I made a commitment to spend my time with my family every Sunday.
His commitment to that relationship was huge.

2. noun, an act of doing something
A commitment to a crime can cost you serious problems.
Incorrect spelling, explanation: there is no double t in the correct spelling commitment, which is the noun form from the verb commit.
