A hairdryer uses 0.2 kWh
Some magnets are used to make electric motors and generators.Some magnets are used for car doors,door hinges,computers,hovers,blenders, CD players,washing machines, fax machin…es, escalators, elevalators,loud speakers,credit cards,tv,fridge doors,toys,jewelry, and elecric toothbrushes, magnets are used in junk yards to make new cars too,magnets are used in roller coasters.These are called electro magnets and you can turn them on and off.and they are also used in the new unistation 360 witch is awesome.
Yes, both the sockets and amperage are adaptable between American and Canadian appliances.
magnets are useful to pick up metal things
It depends on the model, if the hair dryer is a 1500 watt hair dryer, then it uses 1500 watts on high heat. If the hair dryer is a 2000 watt hair dryer, then it uses 2000 wa…tts on high heat. Hair dryers come in all different size wattage, so it depends on the size wattage of the dryer. Most hair dryers are 1500 watts.
A European hairdryer operates on 230V. US power is 110V. The hairdryer will need a high power converter that will be fairly expensive. (110V input to 240V output rated at abou…t 800W) It will be less expensive to buy a new one at Walmart when you get to the US than it will be to buy a converter for the European one.
High speed rail systems use MAGnetic LEVitation to reduce friction on the track(s). Hence the term MAGLEV.
There are surely millions of examples where magnets are used, but a few general statements can be made here. (Both permanent magnets and electromagnets are employed in the are…as below unless otherwise stated. Also, there are sometimes other types of electronics that will perform the same function as the magnet examples below.) 1. Magnets are used in devices that generate electricity. These are known as generators or alternators. Cars use them to charge the battery and operate the electrical system. The giant power generation turbines at damns use electromagnets. 2. Solenoids are electromagnets and many switches employ then to turn things on and off. Doorbells do this as well as virtually any remote controlled valve. 3. Magnets attract things and pick things up. Electromagnets can pick of very heavy objects and most people have seen refrigerator magnets. 4. Magnetic domains are encoded in memory devices. Old magnetic tape had millions of small magnets. The magnetic strip on a credit card has magnets. 5. Changing magnetic fields with both and an electromagnet and permanent magnet operate speakers to produce sound. 6. AC transformers are based on the changing magnetic fields of electromagnets.
The process of attaching a magnetic stripe to a plastic card was invented by IBM in 1960 under a contract with the US government for a security system. Forrest Parry, an IBM E…ngineer, had the idea of securing a piece of magnetic tape, the predominant storage medium at the time, to a plastic card base. He became frustrated because every adhesive he tried produced unacceptable results. The tape strip either warped or its characteristics were affected by the adhesive, rendering the tape strip unusable. After a frustrating day in the laboratory, trying to get the right adhesive, he came home with several pieces of magnetic tape and several plastic cards. As he walked in the door at home, his wife Dorothea was ironing and watching TV. She immediately saw the frustration on his face and asked what was wrong. He explained the source of his frustration: inability to get the tape to "stick" to the plastic in a way that would work. She said, "Here, let me try the iron." She did and the problem was solved. The heat of the iron was just high enough to bond the tape to the card. There were a number of steps required to convert the magnetic striped media into an industry acceptable device. These steps included: 1) Creating the international standards for stripe record content, including which information, in what format, and using which defining codes. 2) Field testing the proposed device and standards for market acceptance. 3) Developing the manufacturing steps needed to mass produce the large number of cards required. 4) Adding stripe issue and acceptance capabilities to available equipment. These steps were initially managed by Jerome Svigals of the Advanced Systems Division of IBM, Los Gatos, California from 1966 to 1975. In most magnetic stripe cards, the magnetic stripe is contained in a plastic-like film. The magnetic stripe is located 0.223 inches (5.56 mm) from the edge of the card, and is 0.375 inches (9.52 mm) wide. The magnetic stripe contains three tracks, each 0.110 inches (2.79 mm) wide. Tracks one and three are typically recorded at 210 bits per inch (8.27 bits per mm), while track two typically has a recording density of 75 bits per inch (2.95 bits per mm). Each track can either contain 7-bit alphanumeric characters, or 5-bit numeric characters. Track 1 standards were created by the airlines industry (IATA). Track 2 standards were created by the banking industry (ABA). Track 3 standards were created by the Thrift-Savings industry. Magstripes following these specifications can typically be read by most point-of-sale hardware, which are simply general-purpose computers that can be programmed to perform specific tasks. Examples of cards adhering to these standards include ATM cards, bank cards (credit and debit cards including VISA and MasterCard), gift cards, loyalty cards, driver's licenses, telephone cards, membership cards, electronic benefit transfer cards (e.g. food stamps), and nearly any application in which value or secure information is not stored on the card itself. Many video game and amusement centers now use debit card systems based on magnetic stripe cards. Magnetic stripe cloning can be detected by the implementation of magnetic card reader heads and firmware that can read a signature of magnetic noise permanently embedded in all magnetic stripes during the card production process. This signature can be used in conjunction with common two factor authentication schemes utilized in ATM, debit/retail point-of-sale and prepaid card applications. Counterexamples of cards which intentionally ignore ISO standards include hotel key cards, most subway and bus cards, and some national prepaid calling cards (such as for the country of Cyprus) in which the balance is stored and maintained directly on the stripe and not retrieved from a remote database.
Water conducts electricity and you can get electrified.
The uses of a magnet is holding things together, lifting and separating iron and steel objects from other non-magnetic materials, used in compasses to find directions, used in… some electrical appliances.
A fridge, an oven , a tv, a speaker, cuboard doors & a radio.
No. Electromagnets are usually made of a core (some type of metal that can be magnetized such as iron) and a coil. The coil is put around the core, and if current flows throug…h the coil the core will become magnetic.

If the plug fits. Single phase volts is volts. 20v less = 10% cooler. Hairdryer means something on your body is wet and electricity is near it so be aware of proper grou…nding.
Electricity is converted partially in to heat by means of a heating element built in the dryer. Another part of electricity is converted to a circular motion of an electri…c motor with a fan, which forces the hot air out of the hairdryer.
