If you have 240V equipment from Europe can you use a 240V line to create standard household plugs that run at 240V if you are in North America?
No. This can lead to dangerous results. First, it violates electrical codes to use higher than standard US voltage for portable appliances. There is a much greater risk of fire because the appliances will not be protected by the types and ratings of circuit breakers typical in Europe. Also, the electrical frequency in Europe is different than that in the US (50 vs 60 Hertz). This would affect performance of many appliances and can result in overheating. There are other technical details that have potential for trouble (including electric shock hazard depending upon what type of equipment you had hoped to use). So, stay safe and don't use the European equipment in the US.
I have run 220v 20A connections throughout my house with European Schukostecker -- Euroean outlets -- and the appliances run fine without issue. I have plugged in lamps, hairdryers, toaster ovens, printers, etc. to this connection.
If the amperage on the line gets too high, the breaker will break.
If you do install 220V outlets make sure you use correct wire and breaker sizes. Do not oversize breakers by using an existing oven or dryer circuit, this is very dangerous!! You can purchase 220V breakers of all sizes here, use the correct one. I would also recomment using US 220V outlets and not European outlets as the European outlets are not underwritten in this country and that may cause your house to fail an inspection. You can buy 15A 220V outlets at most home centers here that meet US safety requirements. Then if you need European outlets use some European powerstrips with a US plug installed. Again, use US equipment to install in your home. What you plug into it is your decision.
North America, South America and Europe. Europe North America South America If you include the root word, then North America, South America and Europe. If not, then just Europe. Europe, North America, and South America Oceania and Europe are the only ones unless you count N and S America oceania?! its North America, South America and Europe. North America! South America! Europe! Hope that helped. Europe,north America,south America
Unlike Europe, Africa and North America, which use time zone designations that are shared by multiple countries, most of the time zones in Asia and South America are named after the countries where they are located. (There are exceptions, such as Indochina Time, Gulf Standard Time and Arabia Standard Time.)
Does reverse polarity occur when hot neutral are wired backwards or when hot neutral are wired backwards?
The assumption here is that you're refering to a standard A/C (alternating current) circuit such as those found in the average household or business. In a typical household the power supplied by the power company actually reverses polarity 60 times a second (60 Hz), hence the term alternating current (A/C). In Europe the standard frequency or Hertz (Hz) is 50 at 220 volts. The U.S. standard is, of course, 110 VAC at 60 Hz. So…
That depends on what part of America you mean. Both North America and Europe are in the northern hemisphere and so always have the same seasons, so if it is summer in North America, then it is summer in Europe. South America is in the southern hemisphere and so always has the reverse seasons to Europe, so if it is summer in South America, then it is winter in Europe.
America (North and South America) is much larger than Europe. America is 42,549,000 km2 while Europe is 10,180,000 km2; meaning America is about 4x the size of Europe. However, if you mean America as in the United States, then the answer is no. The United States is 9,826,675 km2 while Europe is 10,180,000 km2; meaning Europe is about 350,000 km2 larger than the United States.

There is no "positive" wire in an Alternating Current (AC) system, which is what a standard AC power cord or flex is used on. In a cord or flex for a small electrical appliance there is a always a "Hot" or "Live wire, a "Neutral" wire and maybe also a "Ground" or "Earth" wire. The "Hot" or "Live" wire is colored * Black in the US, Canada and other countries using a similar 60 Hz…
