if you apply 25 volts through a total resistance of 6 ohms in a series circuit, the amperage would be 4
a permanet magnet is produced from a material with high reluctance and low permeability
when soft iron is brought close to a permanet magnet is magnetized
the greater the current flow throgh an electromagnet, the greater the stregnth
current flow in the most aircraft circuits is controolled by switches

the mothods used to cool brushless alternating current(AC) generators are engine oil and blast air
the output of the constant speed drive (CSD) used to drive a 60/80 kilovolt ampere (KVA) generator is aproximateky 8,000rpm
the underspeed switvh (USS) on the 60/80 kilovolt ampere (KVA) constant speed switch drive activates at 365 Hz
What supplies rotary power to the input gear of the constand speed drive (CSD)? accessory gearbox
A bettery's internal componet that is a grid or framerwork which supports the active chemical materials is called the Plate
A 24-volt nickel-cadium bettery has 19 cells
the nickel-cadium battery can be fuLLy charged only by constant current
what tyype s s of motor can operate on alternating current (AC) or direct current (DC)? Universal
A shunt type motor has low starting toque an good speed requlation
the three states of matter are liquids, gases an solids
when any force causes a solid to change permanently, the soldi is said to have passed the elastic limit
the most outstanding characteristc of a liquid is its ability to conform to the shape of its container
what usually produces flow in a pneudralic system? pistion pushing the fluid
who was among the first to study the compressibility of gasses Boyle
if 50 psi of cylinder pressure acts on a 5 square inch pistion head, what will the resulting force be? 250 pounds
when an 8-square inch pistion moves 5 inches within a cylinder what volume of liquid is displaced 40 cubic inches
turbulance affects fluid flow in a hydraulic line by creating resistance and loss of energy
A tube whose cross section area is gradually reduced to a smaller size diameter is called a venturi
the purposes of a hydraulic resevoir are to replenish fluid, allow for thermal expansion and provideae a means of bleeding air from the system
the amount of fluid a pump produces on each cycle or revolution is called its displacement
when referring to hydraulic hand pumps, double acting means fluid flow is crested with each stoke of the pump handle
variable-volume pumps do not require a seperate pressure-regulating device in the system because they have an integral compensator
what provides for cooler operation in a stratopower variable-volume hydralic pump? creeap plates
in s the stratopoower variable-volume pump, what holds the pistions in contact with the cam plate? nutating plate
the purpose of a hydraulic motor is to convert hydraulic pressure into rotary mechanical motion
how is the piston installed in an acumulator? hollow end toward the air side of the accumulator
the size of one micron is four? millionths of an inch
in a hydraulic sysetm, the hydraulic manifold provides a location where the common fluid lines can come together
the purpose of an actuating cyclinder is to transform fluid pressure into a mechanical force
what pneudraulic system componet uses a single acting cylinder brake assembly
what pneudraluc ssystem commponetuseaes a double acting balanced actuating cylinder? nosewheel steaerring
which actuator type slows down oistion travel when the pistion nears either end of the cylinder intenal snubber
a manual poppet type selector valve is in working position when the camshaft is rotated to unseat one pressure poppet and one return poppet
the major advantage of the manual slide-type hydraulic selector valve is its metering ability
normally, what posisiton hydraullic selector valves solenoid
the adcantageof an electrically controlled solenoid valve is its reduced weight
the diffrence between a selector valve and a servo valve is that the servo valve controls fluid flow
another name for a flapper check valve is a gate check valve
what is the purpose of the arrow on a check valve show the direction of free flow through the valve
which of these allows normal operating speed of a hydraulic acuator in one direction while limiting speed in the other direction restrictor check valve
what are the s basic units s of a s hydrauulic hand pump system? resevoir, pump, acutator and manual shutoff valve
the resevoir supplies hydraulic fluid to the handpumo by gravity and the suction effect of the pump
when pressure in a hydraulic systen with a variable-volume pump increses, the fluid flow decreases
the s purposse s sof the torsion linkdks on a main landing gear is to prevent the inner cyclinder from rotating within the outer cylinder
