Are you talking about so you don't have to unplug a cord over and over when you switch from a tv, game console, DVD player, etc?
because we use a grounded system, the electricity will take the shortest route to the ground. Salt water is a good conductor, you are not, so the electricity will go through the water to the ground. This would also cause the fuses and circuit breakers to open the circuit. You would only be in danger … Read more
If a tsunami hits you the least of your worries will be an electrical outlet, because the tsunami itself will kill you not the outlet you plugged your blow dryer into.
i saw a documentary on tsunamis yesterday. And now i rly wonder how peeps are not getting electrocuted when in the water. HOWW
A fuse prevents the wires from overuse, causing overheating and fire.
If you are detecting amps, you have current flowing in the circuit.
And in a parallel circuit, the current in each branch is determined by the resistance in that branch.
I don't want to guess at what you are trying to find out.
For a specific electron I think it is totally random. A high amperage is (using electron flow) simply a large number of electrons per unit time.
A conventional battery can be used time and again to do that.
On a survival course many years ago, on Romney Marsh. We were given a old torch battery and some wire wool and expected to start a fire. It worked, along with some burned fingers.
I guess you are more likely to be carrying tinfoil … Read more
It depends. Is it set to be that way? Is your fan never running in the first place?
The most likely answer is no. Your fan won't run even if the thermostat is low. But I'm not completely sure.
Every quarter, the SP tariff rates are revised and they are available at the official Singapore Power services website. I did a comparison of the rates of a few retailers with the SP services rates and found iSwitch to be the best. They also offer 18% discount on the SP services tariff rate.
Depends where you live, Peter. In Oz it takes no more than a couple of weeks. (I switched a couple of years ago.)
It depends on the Singapore electricity retailer you choose. For example, the eligibility criteria for iSwitch is that the consumer should seek electricity supply for the non-domestic sector and also the minimum electricity consumption should be 2000kWh.
Couple of good articles here but the "why" is obvious. To get away from using fossil fuels.
A coil of wire inculed with voltage. This voltage is called induced voltage and it is induced due to the change in magnetic flux of the coil. If we take a current carry wire, a magnetic field will be there due to flow of current. If we change the current of wire, magnetic flux will … Read more
If you are talking about a typical and properly wired electrical circuit in a house, the black is the hot wire, the white is the neutral and the bare copper wire is the ground.
The current in such a circuit is alternating. The white wire will have the same voltage as the black wire if the … Read more
depends on what the source voltage is. Also depends on if the white wire is actually being used as a neutral and not hooked up as a hot wire. Electrons don't care what color the insulation is on a wire.
I don't know for sure, but I would certainly not plug them in while the computer is plugged in and running. I'm honestly confused as to why you need to consider doing something like this...? It's not something I've ever thought about doing for any reason. I asked my PC guru and he said the … Read more
Not sure what "it" is but here are Faq's about Aerogel in general. I think it will answer your questions.
