Best Answer

An automatic spark ignition (igniter) works by allowing a spark to come on at the same time the gas comes on. The spark ignition module is inside the burner area. The burner should then light.

How do temperature sensors work in automatic cookers?

A temperature sensor, as found in autommatic cookers, toasters, and coffee makers, etc. is simply a switch which cuts the power when a given temperature is achieved. A common switch is one constructed of two dissimilar metal such as copper and nickel. When bonded together and heated, the different linear expansion rates of the two metals causes the bimetal switch to bend, thus breaking the electrical contact in the appliance. When the temperature begins to drop, the bimetal switch begins to straighten out and thus closes the switch re-establishing electrical contact. This sequence is repeated constantly while the appliance is in use.

How fast work happens or how quickly energy is transferred.

How does an automatic trash can work?

An automatic trash can works by using sensors to detect movement. One can wave their hand in the line of the sensors, even a few meters away, and the trash can will open automatically, then close when it no longer detects activity.

Power is a measure of?

It is a measure of electrical power. It is Voltage multiplied by Amps. All electrical applicances should give it's wattage or at least it's voltage and Amps so you can work out the wattage. It should be noted that that figure is the maximum that appliance would use.

Does gas expand under pressure and does it release energy into the environment?

I believe you are describing endothermic and exothermic reactions. An endothermic reaction is work done on the system by the surroundings. For example, gas engines- the cylinder does work on the gas/oxygen mix and in internally stores the energy until it is combusted, by means of a spark plug to form CO sub 2 and HOH (i.e. water). exothermic reactions, however, are those which are work done by the system on the surroundings. Any combustion reaction is an exothermic reaction.
