Car headlights have to be able to "dip" so as not to dazzle oncoming traffic, they therefore can switch between a "high" beam and a "dipped" beam and thus have a dual beam.

Need to know first if you have sealed beam headlights (those will have the single bulb with the dual filaments) or composite headlights (those will have two bulbs) in order to answer this question.

High beam headlights reveal objects at a distance of at least 450 feet away. High beam headlights allow the driver to view obstacles in the road much sooner than low beam headlights.

You use low beam headlights when you're in a town or city in any location.

On most vehicles, the low beam headlights are the outside pair of lights. This is true when the headlights are side by side. When the two sets of lights are stacked, the low beam headlights are usually on the bottom.

In a dual beam oscilloscope we are using two separate electron beam for producing different wave forms. But in a dual trace oscilloscope the same beam is used for producing two different wave forms

Low beam headlight should illuminate 85 feet of the roadway. Newer low beam headlights illuminate more of the road than older headlights.

Use your high-beam headlights at night whenever it is legal and safe.

Need to specify which headlights you have... you either have the dual composite headlights, or you have the sealed beam headlight. In the case of the former, you rotate the harness 1/4 turn counterclockwise and it pulls out. You just replace the bulb. In the case of a sealed beam headlight, you have to replace the entire assembly.

I was looking at the 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis Owner Guide and it shows that you can change each of the ( 4 light bulbs for the 2 low beam and the 2 high beam headlights ) ( the low beam headlights take bulb # 9006 ) ( the high beam headlights take bulb # 9005 )

No, the headlights are dual-beam so there is one bulb on each side for both low and high beam. See related links which further highlights this point.

The dual-beam analog oscilloscope can display two signal simultaneously, that is dual beam CRT generator and deflects two separate beams.

There are three headlight settings on your headlight switch. You can turn the low beam headlights on by turning the headlight switch.

At night yes, but in the day no because the sunlight overpowers the headlights and high beam lights.

I know that if you move the turn signal lever ( which is part of the multi function switch ) away from you it turns on the high beam headlights and if you move it towards you , you only have low beam headlights ( and if you pull the turn signal lever all the way towards you and then release it the high beam headlights will flash each time you do that )

what are the advantages of dual trace oscilloscope

No, you should not use high-beam headlights at all in heavy fog.

Possible that both dip beam bulbs have blown

i have a 96 olds achieva and my high beam light was flashing, i checked the headlights and one of my low beam headlights was out. once replaced the flashing stopped.

Low beams are the headlights when they are dipped. Used to light up the road just in front of you and biased towards the kerb nearest you. They also allow you to be seen clearly, but without blinding oncoming vehicles or those in front of you. When there is no other traffic to blind, the headlights should be switched to main beam, to give you the best view ahead and early warning of dangers. A blue light on the dashboard warns you when your headlights are on Main beam and blinding. If you have your headlights switched on and there is NO blue light, then your headlights are on Low beam.

hello! dual beam oscilloscope has 2 filament in crt tube that made 2 independ beam. but tahe dual trace oscope has 1 beam and made 2 channel indicate on screen by high frquency switcher. it mean,one beam alterative swtch between ch1 and ch2 to indicate 2 channel waveform. excuse me for bad english knowledge!! bye
