Electricity Questions & Answers

What is a simple device that opens and closes an electrical unit called?
The correct option is option C. The switch is the simple device that opens and closes an electrical unit. Option D is wrong because an Ampere is the SI unit used to measure the flow of current across the surface at the rate of one coulomb per second
What is the difference between CMOS and TTL?
CMOS and TTL are both classifications of integrated circuits. CMOS stands for ‘Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor’, while TTL means ‘Transistor-Transistor Logic’. The term TTL is gotten from the use of two BJTs (Bipolar J
What is the difference between Single-Phase and Three-Phase Systems?
Single-Phase and Three-Phase Systems are the most common ways of transmitting power from one point to another. The electricity company uses these two ways of power distribution in transmitting power generated from the power plant to the transformer b
What is the separation of positive and negative charges on an object called?
A is the answer to this question. There are a lot of people who may have experienced static when they brush against another person or another item. Some electric charges will stay on the surface of the product and they may not be balanced. This expla
