What is alternator?
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 current 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.

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.
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 alternator recharges the battery of your car
You have alternatives when there is more than one possibility and you can choose between at least two things.
a alternator is made from steel
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.
The alternator (or generator) of a vehicle is the unit thatconverts the mechanical energy from the drive-belt intoelectricity. Amperage (amps) are the output level of thealter…nator. Alternator part number, as well as output amps arespecific to each vehicle. Another Answer Your question is a little like asking, "How long is a length ofstring?"! The rated output current of an alternator depends on itsrated output power rating and its rated terminal voltage. The ratedoutput power can vary tremendously, according to the physical sizeof the machine.
less than half an inch along the longest stretch
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.
change in voltage from no load to full load
The Alternator is a component that acts like an electrical generator, charging a battery and powering necessary electrical systems. They are usually used in place of generator…s because they are lighter in weight, simpler to operate, and produce alternating current.
