EXAMPLE SENTENCES FROM THE WEB

But it is only by raising the voltage of the current that even a short air gap can be bridged by the spark.

The Gasoline MotorHarold Whiting Slauson

The voltage of this current was to be stepped up by a transformer.

The voltage at the dynamo remains practically unchanged, and the current varies according to the load.

This adjustment for voltage is made by means of taps brought out from the primary coil to a rotary switch.

The Radio Amateur's Hand BookA. Frederick Collins

Next we read the voltage impressed on the grid by reading the voltmeter in the grid circuit.

It will be readily seen from these examples how voltage influences the efficiency of transmission.

Electricity for the farmFrederick Irving Anderson

As soon as this sulphate is broken through, diffusion takes place and the voltage drops.

Suppose we try increasing the voltage, or pressure, of our electric current.

The drop in voltage is found by multiplying the amperes of current by the ohms of resistance.

To the voltage that may be supplied by transformers there is no practical limit now in sight.
