Example text

Iron and steel are the only materials that can be magnetized to any practical extent. Certain alloys, such as Alnico, can be strongly magnetized and are called permanent magnets. Permanent magnets are generally in the form of a horseshoe or bar. The space around the poles of a magnet is described as a magnetic field and is represented by magnetic lines of force. The total number of magnetic force lines surrounding a magnet is called its total magnetic flux. Electromagnetism is the production of magnetism by an electric current.

A fuse is a type of automatic safety switch; the fuse blows and opens the circuit in case the load (R) should become short-circuited and draw excessive current from the battery. Fuses are made from thin strips or wire of aluminum or other metal. The resistance of a fuse is comparatively low, but because of its small cross section, the fuse heats up and melts if a certain amount of current flows through it. For example, the fuse shown in Figure 1-32A has a resistance of 1 ohm ( ). The load R has a resistance of 29 ohms, making a total of 30 ohms of circuit resistance.

Electron flow is called an electric current, and a wire opposes (resists) electron flow. This opposition is called electrical resistance. We measure electromotive force (voltage) in volts, electric current in amperes, and resistance in ohms. Figure 1-14 showed how the voltage of a dry cell is measured with a voltmeter. Current is measured with an ammeter. Resistance is measured with an ohmmeter. More electricians now use combination test instruments, such as the multimeter (a combination volt-ohm-milliammeter) shown in Figure 1-21.
