Capacitor

Science / Chemistry / Capacitor: A device for storing electric charge, consisting of two metal plates separated by an insulating material.

Capacitor Start

Technology / Motors / Capacitor Start: The capacitor start single phase motor is basically the same as the split phase start, except that it has a capacitor in series with the starting winding. The addition of the capacitor provides a more MORE

Capacitor (Power Audio)

Technology / Home Audio / Capacitor (Power Audio): Power stabilizing capacitors store the necessary power amplifiers need to punch larger bass notes while limiting clipping. They store energy during intervals when it is not required, which is most of MORE

Capacitor Motor

Technology / Motors / Capacitor Motor: A single-phase induction motor with a main winding arranged for direct connection to the power source, and auxiliary winding connected in series with a capacitor. There are three types of capacitor mo MORE

Electrolytic Capacitor

Technology / Home Audio / Electrolytic Capacitor: A polarized capacitor with a negative and a positive terminal that is commonly used for DC power filtration and energy storage. As with all capacitors, the dielectic insulator separates two plates and MORE

Polyphase Motor

Technology / Motors / Polyphase Motor: Two or three-phase induction motors have their windings, one for each phase, evenly divided by the same number of electrical degrees. Reversal of the two-phase motor is accomplished by reversing the c MORE

Palladium (Pd)

Science / Periodic Table of Elements / Palladium (Pd): Atomic number: 46, Atomic mass: 106.42 g.mol -1, Electronegativity: 2.2, Density: 11.9 g.cm-3 at 20°C, Melting point: 1560 °C, Boiling point: 2927 °C, Isotopes: 9, Vanderwaals radius: 0.065 nm (+2) MORE
