Example text

For example, weather-proof single or duplex receptacles would have the uppercase subscript letters noted alongside of the symbol (see Table 3-4). 1 Single receptacle outlet. 2 Duplex receptacle outlet. 3 Triplex receptacle outlet. 4 Quadruplex receptacle outlet. 5 Duplex receptacle outlet—split wired. 6 Triplex receptacle outlet—split wired. 9 Range outlet. 10 Special-purpose connection or provision for connection. 11 Multi-outlet assembly. (Extend arrows to limit of installation. Use appropriate symbol to indicate type of outlet.

Foot-pound: Unit for measuring work. It is the energy required to move a weight of 1 pound through a distance of 1 foot. Joule (J): The unit of work (W): force acting through distance. One ampere ϫ 1 volt ϫ 1 second ϭ 1 joule. One watt ϫ 1 second ϭ 1 joule. One coulomb ϫ 1 volt ϭ 1 joule. Farad (F): The unit of capacitance (C). A capacitor has a capacitance of 1 farad when one coulomb delivered to it will raise its potential 1 volt. The farad is an impractically large quantity, so you will hear more of microfarads, or 1/1,000,000 farad (10–6 farad).

Representation of one alternation and one cycle, which consists of two alternations. Figure 2-1 Magnetic Units The following definitions of magnetic units are given mainly for later reference. Gauss (G): Unit of magnetic flux density, equal to one line of magnetic flux (maxwell) per square centimeter. Maxwell (Mx): Unit of magnetic flux, one magnetic line of flux. Ampere-turn (At): The magnetomotive force produced by a coil, derived by multiplying the number of turns of wire in the coil by the current in amperes through it.
