Electric motor, electrical energy is put into the motor and is converted into mechanical work. Electric generator, mechanical work is inputted and converted into electrical energy. 8) If your metal car moves over a wide, closed loop of wire embedded in a road surface, will the magnetic field of the Earth within the loop be altered? Will this produce a current pulse in the loop of wire? What practical application does this have at a traffic intersection? When your car moves over the closed loop, the Earth’s magnetic field will align the domains in the car’s metal frame in the same direction as itself. This will add to the magnetic flux through the loop and induce a voltage that will drive a current in the loop according to Faraday’s

This can be used as a sensor to detect the presence of cars at an intersection and used to control the changing of traffic signals. 9) In what sense can a transformer be thought of as an “ electric lever ”? it does not increase the input power to produce a greater output power. Rather, it just changes the contributions to the output power. a lever can change a smaller input force into a large output force by sacrificing distance moved, a transformer is able to “pump” up a small input voltage to a large output voltage by sacrificing current.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
