The alternator is the device in a vehicle's engine compartment that generates electricity. It is commonly found bolted to the engine block and driven by the belt assembly.
Alternative means something with other options available to it. ex:Any alternative ideas guys for our business.
An alternator is an electromechanical device that converts mechanical energy to alternating currant electrical energy.
The alternator generates power to run the car and charge thebattery. An alternator in a vehicle generates Alternate Current (AC) insteadof Direct Current (DC) electricity to power the vehicle.
An alternate book refers to an alternate edition of a book. Analternate version may include different paragraphs or something maybe taken out. Alternate editions of textbooks may be printed tomeet the needs of a state, country or school district.

Out riding fences can be literal or a metaphor. Cowboys go our riding fences to ensure livestock don't stray. Fences in that sense always need mending and it's part of cowboy life that gets you horseback and out sorta cowboying even if you're not handling cattle. As a metaphor, it's simply out do…ing chores nobody particularly likes to do, but it's part of life and it keeps you out on the range away from people and relationships. It's kinda comfortable that way. ( Full Answer )
Alternate means to switch back and forth or take turns. Alternate: Someone who takes the place of another person.
An alternative is one option from a few different choicesavailable. Another way to say it would be substitute.
Alternate rhyming is also called "cross rhyming", meaning the lines alternate between two rhyming words as in abab. The effect created is that of an echo or a return to the rhyme in a pattern that makes the ear expect the rhyme without being as repetitious as a string of couplets. In other words, it… delays the rhyme by inserting another rhyme as in a cross stitch or a round, where you have two rhyming words that "cross" between each other. For example: All I have I give to you you mean the world to me and everything I say or do I do so willingly There are often terms for a specific style or rhyme pattern that most people don't know because they use their ears and memory and don't really study the form. For example, the pattern abba is also called "envelope rhyme", or "arched rhyme" meaning the couplet in the middle, "bb", is enveloped withing the outer rhyme of "a__a", or that the pattern creates an "arch". The pattern "ababbcc" is called "rhyme royal", and "aaab cccb" is called "chain rhyme". Each of these, in combination with the meter or cadence of the poem, creates a specific mood, tone or feeling. This is why it's important to match the style of the poem to the topic and effect you want to create. You wouldn't want to write a serious poem about death using a nursery rhyme style...unless you were trying to create a specific feeling that required the apparent mis-match of topic and style. --GINALYN USON TAN-- ..SEHS..

It is a device that converts mechanical energy to electrical energy on a car. It works by:the alternator creates an electric field by spinning a magnetic rotor with direct current inside stator windings. an ac voltage is developed and rectified dc. this voltage is compared to the battery voltage and… determines the current through the rotor. if the battery voltage is lower than the alternator voltage, more current through the rotor increases the magnetic field and creates a larger alternator voltage. if the battery voltage is higher, less current through the rotor decreases the alternator voltage.

Alternate int angles are two interior angles which lie on different parallel lines and on opposite sides of a transversal
You have alternatives when there is more than one possibility and you can choose between at least two things.
Alternation is the noun form of the base word "alternate". As a verb, "alternate" means "to swap between two or more positions or options on a regular basis" or "to change positions".
' Alternate ' means 'one following on from the other'. So 'alternating' current describes a current that flows first in one direction, then in the other. Not to be confused (although it often is!) with ' alternative ', which means 'a choice between two', as in 'We could either go this way, or we cou…ld choose the alternative route'. ( Full Answer )
This is an easy answer. The alternator is hooked (through wires blue and black) to the battery. So every time you start an engine the alternator kicks on and charges the battery. That's practically how it works. To add a bit to the above- an alternator produces an alternating electrical curre…nt (unlike a generator, which produces a direct current- DC vs AC) On modern cars, the alternator produces the current used to charge the battery, and operate electrical equipment on the car, such as lights, wipers, radio, etc. ( Full Answer )
\nAlternating Current means the current is positive and negative, cycling around zero, like a sine wave.
Alternates are another way to ask the question. If a question has a lot of alternates, it means that the question can be worded in many different ways. An exception to this would be Catch-all questions, which are completely different.
An alternative fuel is a fuel one could use besides the standard or common fuels, like gasoline.
An alternating current (AC) is an electrical current whosemagnitude and direction vary cyclically, as opposed to directcurrent, whose direction remains constant. . The word 'alternating' itself means "changing of direction offlow". The usual waveform of an AC power circuit is very close to a sinew…ave because this is the way the electricity is generated in thepower plants. It also allows us to efficiently transmit the energyby transforming it to higher and lower voltages. AC, or Alternating Current, does exactly what the name implies. InUSA, Canada - and in other countries which use the same servicefrequency - the direction of the current changes 60 times a second(also called a frequency of 60 Hertz) within the 'Hot' wire (alsoknown as the 'Live') - often colored Black - and the Return orCommon wire (technically known as the 'Neutral'), which is usuallycolored White. In Europe and many other areas of the world, the service frequencyis 50 times a second (50 Hertz) within the 'Live' wire which iscolored Brown (but on older systems it is colored Black) and theReturn or Common wire (technically known as the 'Neutral'), whichis colored Blue (but on older systems it is colored Black). It is the service frequency which makes the typical "humming" soundyou hear from transformers or electric AC motors when they arerunning. During just one cycle of a single-phase alternating supply, the"live" or "hot" wire of an alternating voltage (or current) supplygoes from zero to its positive peak, then back to zero, thencontinues on to its negative peak and back to zero again. These positive- and negative-going parts of each cycle are alwaysvoltages (or currents) relative to the "neutral" wire. A neutralwire is necessary to allow the currents to return to thealternator. In a 60 hertz supply there are 60 such cycles in each and everysecond. Similarly, there are 50 such cycles in each and everysecond in a 50 hertz supply. The good link below "AC, DC and Electrical Signals" gives a lotmore information about the difference between alternating currentand direct current. ( Full Answer )
The devices that develop electric power are a generator (for direct current), or an alternator (alternating current). In a car, an alternator is used, with a rectifier, because of size and weight considerations.

It is another tax system that works in conjunction with the normal one, so if a person or company reduces their tax liability by use of certain deductions below a certain point, they still pay tax. Hence if you do great tax loophole or such finding, you will still pay a tax.
"Alternative Family" means something other than the common family arrangements. The most common is: married, man works, wife stays home with kids. Second most common, at least these days, is: married, man and wife both work, kids are babysat or nannied during the day or are latchkey.\n. \nMost hu…mans are ideologically unaware, and so they judge morality by counting how many of their tribesmen are behaving in that manner. In this case, when enough people enter a certain family arrangement, it becomes simultaneously moral (in the aforementioned sense) and mainstream... which to most folks are just two sides of the same coin.\n. \nOnce upon a time, an unmarried couple who bought a house and raised children together would be described as "alternative"... and probably shunned. But no longer. That unenviable station is now occupied by gay and lesbian parents, among other minorities. ( Full Answer )

Alternate wordings are different ways of writing a question. An example is: "What are alternate wordings?" and "What is an alternate wording?". Both questions are trying to ask the same thing, so when two like questions are merged together, one becomes an alternate wording, so when someone types i…n that different wording in the ask bar, they will get redirected to the actual, grammatically correct question. ( Full Answer )
The term 'players must alternate' means that players must switch out so each player gets an equal chance to play the game. That term can also mean that players must switch positions (like in basketball, small forward and center) with each other so each player gets an equal chance to play each posit…ion. ( Full Answer )
An alternate setting is one that is used when the initial setting is not in use or not available. The preferred is the initial but sometimes an alternate is used in its place.
We probably all know what the "F-Word" is. The most common meaning these days for the slang term and abbreviation "WTF", is "What the [F-word]?" This is offensive language to many people, and therefore, considered to be a rude remark and should not be used in polite communications. There are alte…rnate uses of this as an acronym for different groups, etc. which were named long before the current common slang usage of this three letter abbreviation. For some information about a few of those different uses of "WTF", see the link to the WikiPedia article below in the related links section. ( Full Answer )
If the teacher asks for alternative words for a given word or words then he's asking for some synonyms or other words that mean the same as the ones you have.
When two parallel lines are cut by a transversal, the two pairs of angles on opposite sides of the transversal and outside the parallel lines, and the angles in each pair are congruent.
an alternate address is a second address you may have or another address that you can be reached at.
"Plan B" is a great example: Having a second plan ready to go means having an alternative scheme. But it could also mean a "color scheme": i.e: An interior decorator should always have an alternative scheme in mind, in case the buyer is not pleased with their first suggestion.
A word that means an alternate word, with the same definition is a synonym. Comment: Just for information, I live in England. We don't normally use the word "alternate" to mean "a possible choice between things". We use the word "alternative". When I joined "Answers" it took me a couple of minutes …to figure out what "Edit alternates" meant. ( Full Answer )

It means that whatever your signing up for is asking if u have another email ( so maybe that they can send emails to both address).
Alternating thirds usually refers to moving up a scale (or group of notes) by skipping a single note before moving on in the pattern. For example, if playing in the key of C, the note pattern is: C D E F G A B C D E... An alternating thirds pattern could play through those notes in that order…, but also playing the note that is 2 notes away (this distance is called a third). It would look like this (I will put parentheses around the sets of thirds so it is easier to see): (C E) (D F) (E G) (F A) (G B) (A C) (B D) (C E) You can see that the first note in every pair is the next note in the scale, but the note played before the next pair is a *third* away from the note just played. It makes more sense to see it on an instrument ( Full Answer )
Let us say that we are going to have dinner and I suggest that we have pizza. If we want to have something else, that would be an alternative. There are many alternatives. We could have hamburgers, spaghetti, lamb chops, and so forth. Some alternatives are more practical than others, because some fo…ods are much more widely available and less expensive than others. So, while it is true in theory that pate de foie gras is an alternative to pizza, in practice most people can't afford it and their local restaurants don't serve it. That's what we mean by a theoretical alternative. ( Full Answer )
