What is a coil?
it convers 12 volts into 50,000 volts Coil in electronics means wire wrap around some media the get different uses in applications. The above answer only pertains to coil on a car I suppose It is part of the ignition system. in older cars, it is a single unit that is about the size of a coke can. In many newer cars, you have individual coil packs sitting on top of each spark plug.

When a current carrying coil of water is running, creating an electric field, it is called a solenoid.
A solenoid. An electromagnet is wire wrapped around a core of iron (usually). The wrapped wire itself is called the solenoid.
A coil of yarn may be called a hank or a skein. Yarn is typically sold in a ball or a skein. A hank is different in that it is a big loop of yarn that is twisted up for ea…sy shipping.
its a ignition coil which changes 12 volts of battery to a several thousands volts which is required for spark plug to create an ignition.
What is a coil of wire usually wound around a core of iron or steel which produces a magnetic field when electricity flows through the wire?
An electro-magnet is th aswer. Hey STOP CHEATING ON YOUR HOMEWORK AND CHECK OUT MY YOUTUBE! it is ....... http://www.youtube.com/nickjonasfan910
A "coil" is a length of copper or aluminum tubing that has been wrapped or folded into a compact package. A refrigerant gas, such as Freon or ammonia, is pumped through the co…il by the compressor. Air is blown past the turns of a coil to absorb or reject heat. There are two coils in an air conditioning unit, or any refrigeration unit, for that matter -- an evaporator coil inside (gets cold) and a condenser coil outside (gets hot).
These terms apply to the coils inside a wattmeter. 'Pressure coil' is an archaic term for 'voltage coil', which is connected in parallel with the supply, while the 'current co…il' is connected in series with the load.
The current coil is one through which the current of source can pass. This coil is connected in series. The voltage coil is connected parallel to the applied voltage. In the c…urrent coil the quantity of current flowing is proportional to the current flowing in load while in the voltage coil, current flowing is proportional to applied supply voltage. The voltage coil current is independent of current flow in load. For a complete understanding, please refer to a watt meter diagram.
Firing Order; 4.6L = 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8 5.4L = 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8 Coil # 1 is where cylinder # 1 is. Coil # 8 is where cylinder # 8 is. and so on...
A coil of (insulated) wire around a soft iron core forms an electromagnet if a DC voltage is applied and current is passed through the wire.
The ignition coil that is suitable for the hall sensor ignition must have a yellow label.
Coil stamps are printed on a rotary press. Each plate is created flat and rolled around the press. The two ends of the plate come together and there is a gap there. When print…ing this gap leaves a thin line in between two of the stamps. Two stamps with this line between them are called a coil line pair.
In Ford Taurus
A coil pack assembly is a coil that controls 4 or more cylinder using separate igntion wires for each. On a Taurus it will control the 6 cylinders.
An inductor that does not depend upon a ferromagnetic material to achieve its specified inductance. This covers the cases where there really is just air inside as well as wind…ings upon a different insulator such as bakelite, glass or PTFE etc.Its inductance is unaffected by the current it carries. This contrasts with the situation with coils using ferromagnetic cores whose inductance tends to reach a peak at moderate field strengths before dropping towards zero as saturation approaches. Sometimes non-linearity in the magnetization curve can be tolerated; for example in switching converters. In circuits such as audio cross over networks in hi-fi speaker systems you must avoid distortion; then you need an air coil. Most radio transmitters rely on air coils to prevent the production of harmonics.Air coils are also free of the 'iron losses' which affect ferromagnetic cores. As frequency is increased this advantage becomes progressively more important. You obtain better Q-factor, greater efficiency, greater power handling, and less distortion.Lastly, air coils can be designed to perform at frequencies as high as 1 Ghz. Most ferromagnetic cores tend to be rather lossy above 100 MHz.
