Voltage and amperage are both significant topics in electrical engineering. While they are related, they are relevant to different electrical circuit features. Voltage and current are two important electrical concepts. Voltage, measured in volts (V), is the potential difference between two points in a circuit that drives current flow. The flow of electric charge through a conductor is referred to as current, which is measured in amperes (A or amps). Read this article to find out more about Volt and Amp and how they are different from each other. What is Volt? Voltage is a fundamental term in electricity that ... Read More

SPDT (single pole double throw) and DPDT (double pole double throw) switches are two typical types of switches used in electronic circuits. The primary difference between the two is the number of poles (the number of individual circuits that the switch can control) and the number of throws (the number of places the switch may be set to). SPDT switches have one pole and two throws, whereas DPDT switches have two poles and two throws. This means that an SPDT switch can control one circuit and can be set to one of two positions, whereas a DPDT switch can control ... Read More

Electrical conductors can be classified as either ohmic or non-ohmic based on how they respond to resistance. Because ohmic conductors have a constant resistance over a wide range of applied voltages, the voltage placed across them directly affects how much current overflows through them. The resistance of non- Ohmic conductors varies with the applied voltage, and the current flowing through them isn't commensurable to the voltage. Read this article to find out more about Ohmic and Non-Ohmic Conductors and how they are different from each other. What are Ohmic Conductors? Ohmic conductors are useful in electrical circuits and systems that ... Read More

Types of Lever

Updated on 22-Aug-2023 11:24:13


Introduction In order to lift or move any material, the lever is used. Sometimes the lever helps to push against materials but does not move them actually. It generally works in order to decrease a certain amount of effort force that is necessary to move loads. All lever provides mechanical advantages but a longer one provides greater mechanical advantages. They can also be used in order to exert a large force over a small distance at 1 end and a small force over a long-distance at the other side. Levers can be used for various purposes like lifting heavy loads, ... Read More

Introduction The difference between these two aspects of a series circuit and a parallel circuit is that within a series circuit the same amount of current flows. Here the currents flow through the components are placed in it. Differently, it is seen that the parallel circuits shows the placing of components in different branches. It is seen that both the circuits have their own benefits and disadvantages Definition of Series Circuit Figure 1: Series Circuit A Series Circuit mainly refers to a path through which currents flow through each component. In this kind of circuit, every device seems to ... Read More

Difference Between Rtd and Thermocouple

Updated on 18-Aug-2023 18:07:47


Introduction A tedious conversion process is avoided by both an RTD and thermocouple sensors which results in getting temperature measurements in an easy manner. The basic difference between these two sensors lies in their manufacturing functions and operating principles. What is RTD? RTD stands for Resistance Temperature Detectors. This is an important type of sensor, widely used to measure temperature. The resistance of an RTD changes with changes in temperature (Wu, Luo & Liu, 2019). An increase in temperature causes the resistance of an RTD to increase as well. An RTD is not capable of generating output on its ... Read More

Types of Connectors

Updated on 13-Oct-2022 11:19:47


Introduction The durability, mating type, and connection process of a connector depending on the different functions and accessibility of each conductor. In some extreme conditions such as excessive heat, water, cold, vibration, and contamination, these connectors play a significant role in carrying current. What is a connector? A connector is an important electromechanical device that is used for creating proper electrical connections within different parts of a circuit. Direct communication can be formed based on the functions of connectors (Ronanki, Kelkar & Williamson, 2019). Transmission of the signal is integrally connected to this. Power distribution is an important part that ... Read More
