on the engine.
The alternator is the device in a vehicle's engine compartment that generates electricity. It is commonly found bolted to the engine block and driven by the belt assembly.
Alternative means something with other options available to it. ex:Any alternative ideas guys for our business.
An alternator is an electromechanical device that converts mechanical energy to alternating currant electrical energy.
im sorry i dont know but you can check on dictionary.com
An alternative is one option from a few different choicesavailable. Another way to say it would be substitute.
an alternator recharges the battery of your car

It is a device that converts mechanical energy to electrical energy on a car. It works by:the alternator creates an electric field by spinning a magnetic rotor with direct cur…rent inside stator windings. an ac voltage is developed and rectified dc. this voltage is compared to the battery voltage and determines the current through the rotor. if the battery voltage is lower than the alternator voltage, more current through the rotor increases the magnetic field and creates a larger alternator voltage. if the battery voltage is higher, less current through the rotor decreases the alternator voltage.
You have alternatives when there is more than one possibility and you can choose between at least two things.
Alternation is the noun form of the base word "alternate". As a verb, "alternate" means "to swap between two or more positions or options on a regular basis" or "to change po…sitions".
' Alternate ' means 'one following on from the other'. So 'alternating' current describes a current that flows first in one direction, then in the other. Not to be confused (a…lthough it often is!) with ' alternative ', which means 'a choice between two', as in 'We could either go this way, or we could choose the alternative route'.
This is an easy answer. The alternator is hooked (through wires blue and black) to the battery. So every time you start an engine the alternator kicks on and charges the b…attery. That's practically how it works. To add a bit to the above- an alternator produces an alternating electrical current (unlike a generator, which produces a direct current- DC vs AC) On modern cars, the alternator produces the current used to charge the battery, and operate electrical equipment on the car, such as lights, wipers, radio, etc.
The devices that develop electric power are a generator (for direct current), or an alternator (alternating current). In a car, an alternator is used, with a rectifier, becaus…e of size and weight considerations.
A second answer, perfectly proper, to a question. "is light a wave?". Well, "yes". But also, "yes and no". It implies that the question needs refining.
