the average auto battery holds 14.2 volts. most vehicles use 12

volts. but at the same time most big trucks and diesels have a 12

volt system which boosts to 24 volts for starting

### What is maximum output voltage of a transformer?

The secondary voltage (output voltage) of a transformer depends
on the turns ratio of the transformer, and is limited by the
practical insulation levels of the secondary winding, so can
be very high indeed. Power transformers used in electricity
transmission systems have secondary voltages in the range of
hundreds of kilovolts.

### What is effective range?

The term Maximum Effective Range is used to distinguish between
Maximum Range (how far a bullet will travel) and the greatest
usable range. Maximum Effective range is defined as the
greatest distance at which a weapon may be expected to fire
accurately to inflict casualties or damage. While cartridges have
an approximate range, the true effective range is determined by
both the cartridge, and the weapon that fires it.

### How are fuses rated?

Fuses are rated by amperage (current) and voltage. The larger
the current need, the larger the rating of the fuse, to handle the
current. The voltage rating of a fuse defines the maximum value of
circuit voltage in which the fuse can be safely used. A fuse should
not be used in a circuit with a voltage exceeding the voltage
rating of the fuse.

### Is the maximum effective the maximum killing range if so then what is the maximum effective range of the 7.62x39 round?

The term Maximum Effective Range is used to distinguish between
Maximum Range (how far a bullet will travel) and the
greatestusable range. Maximum Effective range is defined as
the greatest distance at which a weapon may be expected to fire
accurately to inflict casualties or damage. While cartridges have
an approximate range, the true effective range is determined by
both the cartridge, and the weapon that fires it. The two most
common firearms in 7.62x39 are the SKS Carbine, and the AK-47.
While both fire the same cartridge, the SKS has a barrel that is
about 6 inches longer, Thus the SKS will have a longer max. range,
and a longer max effective range- about 400 meters.

### Why the transformer rating in kva why not in kw?

A transformer has separate ratings for maximum voltage and
maximum current. Both limits must be observed. The maximum voltage
is set by the magnetic flux density in the core, while the current
limit is set by the size of the wire used in the primary and
secondary windings. Multiplying the two together gives the VA or
kVA rating.
