Voltage Troubleshooting

Quote To understand the voltage you need to understand the concept of potential energy. . Now what is potential energy???? Potential energy at the particular point is the amount of the work done in moving a charge from an infinite position to a given point in the electric field. . . Quote sorry are you saying potential energy is the amout of work done of moving a charge from one location to other? When corrent goes through load there is less energy and potential energy . What does electric field have to do with it. Well no voltage than no current, the resistance try to slow down or stop the voltage . Do you know what I found? Voltage : The voltage between two points is a short name for the electrical force that would drive an electric current between those points. Specifically, voltage is equal to energy per unit charge. In the case of static electric fields, the voltage between two points is equal to the electrical potential difference between those points. In the more general case with electric and magnetic fields that vary with time, the terms are no longer synonymous. Electric potential is the energy required to move a unit electric charge to a particular place in a static electric field. ======================== Well no voltage than no current, the resistance try to slow down or stop the voltage . I would not accept this. because Current Exists when voltage = 0. Example. in a short circuit. current is very high. but voltage is zero. Voltage Exists when current = 0. Example. in an open circuit. voltage = Potential difference (Voltage) between the two terminals of the open circuit. but between those open terminals. current=0. Resistance. let me explain. suppose you have a path to walk. the path is smooth. then you can easily walk. if I put throw glass pieces on your path. and ask you to walk. you will still walk but your speed is reduced. when I tell you to walk again when I throw more and more glass pieces. your speed will reduce considerably and slowly. you cannot walk anymore. similarly. when resistance increases the current cannot flow because the path is narrowed. So when the point charge cannot go faster. the potential difference decreases considerably. so the voltage decreases.. Load is also a type of resistance. just like a TV. when there is no power can TV be on?? No right. so definitely the voltage and current decreases considerably. depending on the load. potential energy is the amout of work done of moving a charge from one location to other? Its not potential energy. its electrical energy

Electrician’s Helper

I am not well experienced but I know how do the work. I know the ohms law and what color coating wires to use. I’ll work for $8. 00 per hour. Btw,I took basic electricity in high school. Every time I look at the adds, they are looking for years experience. It’s not for me. I want to be working again because life is not free. Any suggestions to how to find work? Any negative reaction will be reported. Knocking on doors. That’s a start. Pancake, may sound pretty negative but all I got is we’re slow and not hiring anyone. After speaking to others on the web, I found the answer. Look up reputable electricians and go knock on some doors and ask. You’ll be surprised how many electricians need a hand mostly all now and then. My son in law is a fully qualified spark and has a couple of lads to help him. If you show promise,they will even send you on a course. . UK

Oven-baked Potato Wedges Craving French fries but want something with a little more flair? These battered and oven-baked potato wedges taste darn close to the restaurant version but contain 70 percent less fat and 40 percent fewer calories. RECIPE INGREDIENTS: 2 tablespoons canola oil 1 cup flour 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon black pepper 1/2 teaspoon celery salt 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt 2 large eggs, beaten 4 medium potatoes, scrubbed and rinsed but not peeled canola cooking spray 1. Heat the oven to 450°. Coat a baking sheet with a tablespoon of canola oil. 2. With a fork or whisk, mix the flour, garlic powder, salt, pepper, celery salt and seasoning salt in a shallow dish and set aside. Add the beaten eggs in a small bowl. 3. Cut the potatoes into 1/2-inch-thick wedges. Dip each wedge into the beaten eggs, then the flour mixture, making sure it is wellcoated. Place the coated wedges on the prepared baking sheet and let them sit 10 to 15 minutes. 4. Coat the tops of the potato wedges generously with canola cooking spray. Bake in the center of the oven until golden brown (15 to 18 minutes), flipping after 10 minutes. Serves 5. ————OR THIS RECIPE. .

Quality Assurance

Is it different from insurance. After speaking to others on the web, I found the answer. Insurance and assurance are too closely related terms and some times misinterpreted as the same. In general, the term insurance refers to providing cover for an event that may happen while assurance is the provision of cover for an event that is certain to happen. Audits can be considered a type of assurance service. However audits are only designed to test the validity of the financial statements. Under an assurance engagement, accountants can provide a variety of services ranging from information systems security reviews to customer satisfaction surveys. Unlike audit and attestation services that are often highly structured, assurance services tend to be customized and implemented when performed for a smaller group of decision makers in the firm. Often managers must make decisions on things they have incomplete or inaccurate data for, and decisions made on such data may be incorrect and increase the overall business risk. In this respect, assurance services can be very helpful in reducing such risk and help managers or decision makers make more confident decisions in a given firm. This is similar to audits in that investors will choose to invest in a firm that is publishing financial statements that have been audited by an independent firm. Assurance services can test financial and non-financial information; due to this assurance services can be classified as consulting services. However, assurance services are not considered consultingbecause in consulting services generally, an accountant uses their professional knowledge to make recommendations for a future event or a procedure, such as the design of an information system or accounting control system. In contrast, assurance services are designed to test the validity of past data of the business cycles. Although there is no boundary to what an accountant can test in assurance services, a practitioner is discouraged from accepting an assurance engagement in which his firm or previous experiences does not provide them with enough expertise to make a professional opinion on the given data.
