Home Electricity is Alternating Current (AC). AC can be transmitted much longer distances, over much less massive conductors than direct current (DC).Comment
Actually, d.c. can be transmitted much longer distances, with less massive conductors and lower losses, than a.c! However, the reason that a.c. is more common for transmission and distribution is the ease and efficiency with which its voltage levels can be changed using Transformers. D.C. transmission at high voltage over very long distances is used because it is much more efficient than a.c. transmission, but changing its voltage levels is far more difficult and inefficient compared with a.c.
Ac/dc is a band, ac is air conditoning, and an acto dc converter has something to do with electricity
Electricity is either alternating current or direct current, abbreviated AC or DC. An AC/DC Capacitor can be used in either an AC or DC current.
AC or DC, whatever you want. It produces the same electricity that you use for your home.
Battery current is DC. Home current is AC.
AC (alternating current)
The two forms of Electricity are AC and DC. AC Stands for Alernating Current and DC stands for Direct Current. AC electricity comes out of the Powerpoint that your computer is probably using and DC electricity is used in 5.1 voltage batteries that probably power your flashlight or toy.
Electricity is used. It is stored in the form of DC voltage. DC is direct current which is not what is used in your home. DC is used in storage batteries. AC or alternating current is what is used to power your home.
DC or Direct Current
Electricity supply services for lighting and other electrial appliances used in homes are alternating current (ac).
AC represents Alternating Current and DC represents Direct Current.
In home,we use dc source only.it convert from ac by using inverter
AC 220/240 volts
elec - electricity AC - Alternating Current DC - Direct Current
Some devices operate on AC and others on DC. Generally, anything that uses mains electricity (120V US, 240V UK) is using AC electricity and things that use batteries or are rechargable like cell phones, ipods, personal CD, use DC electricity.
My husband said without hesitation AC!! DC power comes from batteries, AC power comes from electricity((generating power))....
AC (Alternating Current)
AC stands for alternating current, as opposed to direct current (DC).
by blocking current flow in one direction
The two forms of electricity are Alternating Current (AC) and Direct Current (DC).
Some home appliances, specifically, resistive loads such as toasters, irons, and the resistive portions of ranges, will work on AC or DC. Motors, such as timers, blowers in dryers, or rotary sources in washers, require AC. In general, home power is AC, so home appliances should be assumed to be AC, not DC, unless you have a special case home, such as a solar powered home, running on DC.
bcoz it is costly to develop ac...and dc can be store nor ac
AC electricity will not dissipate in charge traveling along a wire for up to hundreds of miles whereas DC dissapates at about 2 miles at its best. DC is simple and easy, the simplist electrical cirtuit possable.
