# What is the reason of voltage drop in electrical circuit?

In alternating current circuits, additional opposition to current flow occurs due to the interaction between electric and magnetic fields and the current within the conductor;… this opposition is called "impedance". The impedance in an alternating current circuit depends on the spacing and dimensions of the conductors, the frequency of the current, and the magnetic permeability of the conductor and its surroundings. The voltage drop in an AC circuit is the product of the current and the impedance (Z) of the circuit. Electrical impedance, like resistance, is expressed in ohms. Electrical impedance is the vector sum of electrical resistance, capacitive reactance, and inductive reactance. The voltage drop occurring in an alternating current circuit is the product of the current and impedance of the circuit. It is expressed by the formula E = IZ, analogous to Ohm's law for direct current circuits.

# Is GE the only 27 drop in electric range?

According to several appliance dealers I have asked about this, the answer is yes. Guess there isn't much call for small appliances these days.

# Why does the voltage drop as electricity flows through a light bulb?

Do you mean why is the voltage in a circuit lower after the light bulb than before it? If so, it's because the light bulb filament has electrical resistance. When an electri…cal current flows through a resistance, there is a voltage drop across the resistance (Ohm's law). More fundamentally, the light bulb is producing light, which is a form of energy. The voltage drop across the light bulb comes from the fact that electrical energy is being turned into light. If voltage didn't drop, you would be producing energy from nothing. Furthermore, if there were no voltage drop, your circuit would behave the same whether you had no light bulbs, one light bulb, or eighteen million light bulbs - something that clearly can't be the case.

# In a series circuit why does the largest voltage drop occur across the largest or smallest resistor?

It doesn't. In a series circuit, the largest voltage drop occurs across the largest resistor; the smallest voltage drop occurs across the smallest resistor.

# What do you mean by Computers are susceptible to sudden surges or drops in electrical line voltage?

Computers are sensitive electronic devices violent voltage fluctuations can burn up individual components or corrupt your data.

# Why does the voltage drop when you turn lights on in a 1966 dodge?

In all probability you have a bad battery or a loose connection. If the voltage drops with the motor running, you probably have a bad alternator (or generator) or regulator.

# Why does your voltage drop when you turn your headlights on?

As you add more load, the load current increases. This causes an increase in the internal voltage drop taking place inside the battery, due to its internal resistance. The ter…minal voltage will then reduce by an amount equal to that increase in internal voltage drop.

# Why does Car voltage drops when air conditioner is turned on?

The air conditioning uses up the battery power.

# Does an electric motor turn faster if you increase the voltage?

Depends on the type of motor. Some will and some will not.

# How do you measure voltage drop across an electrical load in a circuit?

You simply place a voltmeter across the load. That will give you voltage drop. Just be careful to use the correct voltmeter and take appropriate safety precautions to preve…nt electrocution and/or damage. Also, note that placing a meter across a load might elevate the ground lead potential on the meter, so you do not want to have the meter grounded in any way.

# What occurs when the electrical supply drops?

# What happen when voltage drop occur?

Voltage drops (across conductors) reduces the supplied voltage. This means some % of the supplied voltage is actually being lost by the wire itself. Excessive voltage drop wi…ll result in unsatisfactory operation of electrical equipment, and represents energy wasted in the wiring system. Voltage drop can also cause damage to electrical motors and other elements in the system.

# What is voltage drop in an electrical circuit?

When a current flow on a conductor , or load or resistor, some voltage will drop across that load or resistor. Answer A voltage drop is the potential difference appearin…g across individual components in a circuit, necessary to drive current through those components. The sum of the individual voltage drops around a series circuit will equal the supply voltage applied to that circuit.

# Why voltage drop occurs?

Every component in a series circuit must have a potential difference across its terminals if current is to flow through that component. We call each of these individual poten…tial differences a 'voltage drop', which is actually a bit of a misnomer as it's not really a 'drop' at all; it would be better termed a 'distribution'. The sum of these 'voltage drops' will then equal the supply voltage applied to the entire circuit.
