electro-, electr-, electri-
(Greek > Latin: electric, electricity; from amber, resembling amber, generated from amber which when rubbed vigorously [as by friction], produced the effect of static electricity)
Electronics in our lives consists of numerous tools
Equipment which we use everyday relies on electronics to function including calculators, car controls, cameras, washing machines, medical scanners, mobile telephones, radar systems, computers; as well as many other applications or devices which are listed in this unit.
The year was 1831 and the man was a 39-year-old British scientist, Michael Faraday (1791-1867).
A hat trick refers to three consecutive successes in a game or another endeavor; for example, taking three wickets with three successive deliveries by a bowler in a game of cricket, three goals or points won by a player in a game of soccer, ice hockey, etc.; therefore, sometimes, a threefold feat or success in some other activity including this example of three-electrical achievements all of which were accomplished in one year.
2. The opposition which a circuit presents to electric current.
The impedance includes both resistance and reactance.
Resistance results from collisions of the current-carrying charged particles with the internal structure of the conductor while reactance is an additional opposition to the movement of an electric charge that comes from the changing electric and magnetic fields in circuits that carry alternating current.
Two energy sources, pulsed light and pulsed electrical fields offer food processors and packagers weapons to combat contamination and extend product shelf life.
Unlike hydrogen peroxide, pulsed light and electrical fields leave no chemical residues.
Unlike heat sterilization or pasteurization, these energies have little if any negative effect on product, taste, texture, color, or nutrient content of the food.
Electric insulation is generally an important element in both the technical and economic applications of complex power and electronic systems.
Interference can be seen in both the sound waves and the electromagnetic waves; especially, those of visible light and radio.
2. A recorded measurement of the conductivities and resistivities down the length of an uncased borehole.
It provides a complete record of the formations penetrated.
It is used for geological correlations of the strata and evaluations of the possibly productive horizons.
2. The noise generated by electrical devices; for example, motors, engine ignition, power lines, etc.
