An instrument of the latter type of considerable accuracy was designed by Lord Kelvin for the British Board of Trade Electrical Laboratory, and it is there used as the principal standard ampere balance.
An alternating current of one ampere is defined to be one which produces the same heat in a second in a wire as the unit continuous current defined as above to be one ampere.
The great novelty in the ampere balances of Lord Kelvin was a joint or electric coupling, which is at once exceedingly flexible and yet capable of being constructed to carry with safety any desired current.
One ampere is one coulomb per second, two amperes are two coulombs per second, and so on.
Its sensitiveness is such that a current of a thousandth of a micro-ampere will move the spot of light appreciably.
The three units--the volt, ampere and ohm--are so related that a pressure of one volt acting upon a circuit with a resistance of one ohm will produce a current of one ampere.
The reader will probably have noticed from what has already been said about the units of measurement--the volt, the ampere and the ohm--that the current varies directly as the pressure and inversely as the resistance.
And when one comes to consider that a micro-ampere is a millionth part of an ampere this is perfectly astounding.
Thus the practical definition of the ampere is "that current which when passed through a solution of silver nitrate in water will deposit silver at the rate of .
The life of the cells must be expressed upon the principle of ampere hours or the amount of energy given off by them.
Ampere arrived in Weimar a few days ago, and proved to be a lively youth, some twenty years old; and we were no less surprised when, in the course of further intercourse, he told us that the whole of the contributors of the.
Ampere in the Parisian Globe of last year, in a manner no less excellent, and this affected Goethe so agreeably that he very often recurred to it, and expressed his great obligations to it.
When a greater ampere capacity is required, two or more rectifier sets can be joined to one circuit.
Second, if the conditions are reversed, and the wire A is thicker than B, the latter will have an increase of voltage, but a lower ampere flow than in A.
The International ampere is represented sufficiently well for practical use by the unvarying current which, when passed through a silver voltameter (as described above) deposits silver at the rate of .
The ampere is the unit which measures the amount of current.
In order to express quantity of energy, it is necessary to state the length of time the energy is to act and originally the watt represented the energy of a volt-ampere for one second.
The ampere meter or ammeter, as it is termed, is the proper indicator of the strength of the cell.
The volt, ampereand ohm are terms that are used to express the conditions of the electric circuit; the watt and the kilowatt are units that are employed in measuring its quantity in commercial usage.
By keeping in mind the ampere output of the battery and rating of the lamp, one can regulate the batteries as required.
Alternating current trip coils have relatively high impedance and impose a heavy volt ampere load on the current transformers.
Diagram showing relative direction of current, magnetic flux, and motion of disc in Faraday disc, or mercury motor ampere hour meter.
Care is exercised to reduce to a minimum the volt ampere load imposed by the relay on the current transformer to permit the use of un-stranded meters and relays upon the same transformer.
Meters exceeding 100 ampere capacity have five ampere coils and are operated from external current transformers having 5 ampere secondaries.
Sectional view of Faraday disc or mercury motor ampere hour meter as made by Sangamo Electric Co.
The top tray is connected with the line through a 60 ampere fuse, and the bottom tray is connected to the tank which is thoroughly grounded by means of a lug.
They have relatively high impedance and impose a heavy voltampere load on the transformers.
In the case of a 10 ampere meter, it will make one complete revolution in one hour and for a 20 ampere, two revolutions, and so on.
Lengthening the air gap; This increases the reluctance, and also necessitates more ampere turns in the field winding.
A one hundred ampere fuse may be made by taking four wires of twenty-five amperes capacity.
It is sold at sevenpence a gallon, and each gallon is sufficient, we are informed, to drive a cell while it generates 800 ampere hours of current, or, taking the electromotive force at 1.
On this basis one kilowatt hour gives 272 ampere hours and as one ampere hour is theoretically capable of producing 1.
Ballanche and his young friendAmpere discussed questions of history and philosophy, and Madame Recamier gave an air of elegance to an apartment in the meanest inn.
But he came to the Abbaye rarely, and when his friend Ampere asked him the reason, he replied: "It is an assembly of persons too illustrious for my obscurity.
He was born in 1813, and was still a student, and in his twentieth year, when first presented by Ampere to Madame Recamier.
The day before, Ampereand Madame Salvage had dined with her, and on the morning of her seizure her niece's daughter Juliette had been reading to her the memoirs of Madame de Motteville.
The above list will hopefully give you a few useful examples demonstrating the appropriate usage of "ampere" in a variety of sentences. We hope that you will now be able to make sentences using this word.
