# If you were to use two different gauge sizes of wire per leg of a three phase electricity installation would the smaller gauge wire of the parallel set get hotter than the larger size wire of that set?

Yes, because a thinner wire has higher resistance and dissipates more energy as heat.

### What is parallel venation in leaf?

In parallel venation, the veins are all smaller in size and parallel or nearly parallel to one another, although a series of smaller veins connects the large veins. Parallel venation occurs in the leaves of nearly all monocotyledonous Angiosperms, whose embryos have one cotyledon, as in flowering plants such as lillies and grasses

### Why is direct current not used to power homes?

DC (dirrect current) electricity is not used in homes, because different appliances (lamps, TVs, etc.) use different voltages. By using AC electricity, each appliance can take the voltage it needs. If we used DC, some smaller appliances would constantly burn out, because the voltages are far too high.

### What are the advantages of a parallel combination of resistors?

If you need a resistor of a certain value, and you have no resistors with small enough values, you can create the one you need by connecting several of those you have in parallel. The effective net resistance of resistors in parallel is always less than the smallest individual. And the more resistors you add in parallel, the smaller the net effective resistance becomes.

### Why you need a semiconductor if you have a conductor?

A conductor, in electrical terms, is any material that electricity can flow through. A semiconductor allows you to control the path of electricity. The original version of this was the Vacuum Tube, followed by the Transistor. The transistors got smaller and smaller, now made of silicone, and are now located in computer chips.

### What exactly is parallel computing?

"Essentially, parallel computing uses multiple processors and/or programs, to break large problems down into smaller ones, which are then solved simultaneously, arriving at the desired result, more quickly. It is assumed that it is easier to solve the smaller, less complicated calculations to arrive at the same answer as one would eventually come to, solving the problem in a sequential manner."

### Why are transformers connected in parallel?

It is common to pull parallel conductors to a transformer when the expected current is high enough. It can become difficult to pull 400A and larger wire so you can use 2,3 or 4 sets of smaller parallel wires to accomplish the current. = = Transformers are frequently connected in parallel with each other in order to increase the amount of apparent power (expressed in volt amperes) they can supply to a load.

### Are the three conductors in a single phase 240v circuit considered to be in parallel?

If the three conductors are in a single cable they physically are positioned parallel in relationship to each other. True parallel conductors are combined to split the current. They have to be of equal length and size so that they split the load current between the two or three or four conductors. Conductors are paralleled so that multiple smaller conductors, which are easier to work with, can carry equally the total load current. To answer…

### What it is a static electricity?

Everything we see is made up of tiny little parts called atoms. The atoms are made of even smaller parts. These are called protons, electrons and neutrons. They are very different from each other in many ways. One way they are different is their "charge." Protons have a positive (+) charge. Electrons have a negative (-) charge. Neutrons have no charge.

### What are the advantages of having a electricity power station near a city?

By having shorter linear transmission distances, less power will attenuate as wasted energy. This can be very important for smaller generation facilities who require a shorter ROI. Solar Farms, Wind Turbine Installations, Hydroelectric are the best candidates for this type of installation as other varieties of power generation would prove too dangerous or environmentally unsound.

### Why are smaller dams better than bigger dams?

The answer there is more pressure on smaller dams which creates MORE electricity. +++ Sorry but that makes no sense. The electricity generated depends on rate of flow and head available, not on dam size. In fact the higher the dam the greater the head (depth hence water-pressure at the turbine), though this can be increased still further by piping the water to a power-station situated further down the valley instead of at the dam…

### What happens to the current at a junction in a parallel circuit?

In a parallel circuit the current divides when it comes to a junction. Part of the current flows through one branch and the other part flows through the other. When the two branches have the same resistance, the same current flows through each branch. When the two branches have different resistances, a bigger current flows through the branch with the smaller resistance - it's just easier this way! Hope i helped ;)

### How many emails is 31.23MB?

There is no answer to that. An e-mail can be different sizes, so it could be many small messages or a smaller amount of large messages, but typically a mix of all different sizes. There is no answer to that. An e-mail can be different sizes, so it could be many small messages or a smaller amount of large messages, but typically a mix of all different sizes.

### The differences between a series circuit and a parallel circuit?

In a series circuit, electrons flow through all the components one after another. If one fails (break), the whole circuit is no longer live. All the resistances are also added up in a series circuit. The current (measured in amps) is the same throughout the whole circuit. In a parallel circuit, electrons flow through smaller circuits all coming from the same source. The amperage is different in each circuit based on the resistance offered. The…

### The area of a trapezium is 180 cm square and its height is 9 cmif one of its parallel sides is longer than the other by 6 cm find the two parallel sides?

Area of trapezium = 0.5(sum of parallel sides)*height So, 180 = 0.5*(sum of parallel sides)*9 So Sum of parallel sides = 40 cm. If the smaller parallel side is x cm, then the larger side is x+6 cm and their sum is 40 cm so x + x+6 = 40 or 2x = 34 or x = 17 and x+6 = 23. The two parallel sides are 17 and 23 cm.

### What app do you use to install things on mac?

The installation of items on a Mac should be an automated process. For applications, for example, there is usually an installation script that you would double click to start the installation process, or, for smaller applications you would just drag the application into the Applications folder. Similarly for individual files (pictures, videos, music, documents) you would drag these to the Picture, Movies, Music or Document folders or wherever you wanted to keep them.
