AC, alternating current is used to power electrical outlets in the U.S..
There is no minimum height for electrical outlets. Some outlets are designed to be used on the floor. The average electrician will use 12" as a rule. This measurement can be to the top, middle or bottom of the outlet box. Sometime the customer will ask to have an outlet at a specific height to accommodate a special appliance or piece of equipment they might want to power.
Batteries provide Direct Current (DC) while household outlets provide Alternating Current (AC).
Though computers plug into AC outlets, their power supplies convert that current to lower-voltage DC power for use internally.
No modern industrialised country uses d.c. power supplies.
Some SUVs may have electical outlets. Almost any vehicle can have a DC/AC power inverter installed to run AC powered devices. Make sure the output is enough for what you want to run, and follow the manufacturers instructions when installing.
In DC, the electrons flow steadily in a single direction, or "forward." In AC, electrons keep switching directions, sometimes going "forwards" and then going "backwards." The power that comes from wall outlets is AC.
Dc is an electrical term for direct current. Ac stands for alternating current. As you probably guessed a dc moter uses dc current and an ac moter uses ac current. P.S. Most home outlets use ac current.
AC motors are available from a wide range of outlets. Emotorstore supplies a variety of ac motors to suit all budgets; alternatively surplussales specialises in small AC motors. The current 'best buy' rated by customers is the Baldor CL3507 General Purpose AC Motor, supplied by Amazon for $291.25.
you are probably low on freon. take it to the garage and have them hook it up to a/c gauges to make sure
The side of the plug with the ground wire is or should be the negative and the side with just the center screws is the positive.
An ipod nano is 110 volts. Why, because our regular outlets are 120 volts AC.
There is no legal height. You can install them any height you want unless local codes call for something different. In a basement I would recommend what is commonly used which is around 13" to the bottom of the outlet box.
The collective noun for retail outlets is a chain of outlets. The collective noun for electrical outlets is a bank of outlets.
Must be accompanied by child to ride.
The standard height is 48 inches above the floor -- but take into consideration the heights of your family members and any furniture or electrical outlets that might be in the way.
Ac means alternating current, which means that the polarity is continuously changing. It's what you'll find in the outlets. DC means direct current, which means that the polarity remains the same. You get it from batteries.
All of the electrical outlets in a house are in parallel across the electric company's AC service entry into the house.
There is no set Height. On porches I would recommend 13" to the bottom of the outlet box from the porch. On the side of the house I would recommend 24" to the bottom of the box above ground level. If the outlet is not on a covered porch it must have a bubble cover installed. If it is on a porch it must have a waterproof cover. All outside outlets must be GFCI outlets.
In batteries Direct current is used (DC). This is because Batteries do not last very long and therefore are made to have certain voltage that can be used in most electronics. Batteries can be very hazardous if there is a short circuit that occurs. In households the outlets are a form of Alternating current (AC). This is because AC is easier to use and has no big hazards (unless you stick a fork in the socket). If some of the outlets give out (die or burn out) the rest of the remaining sockets in that same area will still work.
3 - 4 feet above the floor
yes on thoes cars and most cars the ac kicks on to circulate the heat for the defroster
The two are different machines, but you can connect diodes on the output of an ac generator to produce dc, that's what happens in alternators for cars. A car alternator is a 3-phase ac generator, and you have six diodes. From each of the three phase outlets you have one diode to the positive rail and one to the negative.
