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.
2. A description of an acoustic tool in which its operation is based on the energy produced by the change in dimensions of an electrostrictive material; such as, barium titinate.
2. Surgery performed with various electric instruments which operate on high-frequency electric currents.
3. The use of electricity to perform surgical procedures; such as, the use of electricity to simultaneously cut tissue and to stop or decrease bleeding.
4. Medical surgery which is performed using an active electrode in the form of a disk, bulb, or needle.
2. The process of producing a compound by a chemical reaction or series of reactions, usually from simpler or commonly available starting materials that are induced by an electric current flow in an electrochemical cell.
2. The movement of cells or organisms in response to electric current.
It can be either negative, when movement is toward the anode, or positive, when movement is toward the cathode.
2. The study or science of practical and industrial applications of electricity.
2. The science of the methods, proceses, and operations by which electricity is applied in the industrial arts.
2. The technological use of electric power.
3. A branch of engineering concerned with the practical applications of electricity in all its forms, including those of electronics.
Electrotechnology deals with wire and radio communication, the stored-program electronic computer, radar, and automatic control systems.
