APPLICATION Mechanical engineers and Manufacturing engineers must know the refractive index of fluids and other materials to build efficient and affordable machines. A transformer is a static electrical device that transfers electrical energy between two or more circuits . Some basic components of a transformer consists of: laminated core, windings, insulating materials, tap changer, oil conservator. Breather, cooling tubes, Buccholz relay, explosion vent and lastly the transformer oil. Transformer oil or insulating oil is an oil that is stable at high temperatures and has excellent electrical insulating properties. It is used in oil-filled transformers, some types of high-voltage capacitors, fluorescent lamp ballasts , and some types of high-voltage switches and circuit breakers. The application of index refraction can be applied through the process of making sure and monitoring the quality of oil that is in high voltage transformers. High voltage transformers are used vastly in buildings and big infrastructures. The role of the

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
