What wire is positive on a table lamp?
A table lamp using AC (alternating current) does not have a positive wire, but many will color-code the wires white and black within the circuit.
As said, no positive and negative, but there IS a hot and a neutral. The hot wire may have ridges running the length of the insulation (or be colored black if separately insulated). The hot wire connects to the brass colored screw, and feeds power to the base of the bulb. Yes, will work if reversed, but is not according to electrical code. White or unridged wire connects to silver colored screw, which connects to the shell of the bulb base.
In a floor lamp or table lamp a #16 wire is what you need.
Its a power source such as a battery - Wire from the Positive on the battery to one contact on the lamp and a wire from the Negative of the battery to the other contact on the bulb
The term plus or minus is usually a term designated to DC Sources. The terminology for AC systems in laymen terms is neutral and "hot". On a lamp socket, for safety reasons the lamp shell should be connected to the neutral wire and the "hot' wire connected to the bottom centre contact point. In North America this is done automatically by connecting the white wire the silver coloured terminal and the black coloured wire to… Read More
If you are talking about lamp cord that table lamps use, look for a raised rib on one of the parallel wires. This is the identified wire so it will be connected to the neutral (silver) blade of the plug.
No, cord wire is only rated for connecting a table or floor lamp to a wall receptacle. By cutting it off and then connected to the circuit in a junction box is not acceptable practice.
Most lamp wire is parallel #16 conductors.
The only cord with a rib identifier is lamp cord. There are small extension cords made of this material but should only be used for very light duty such as extending table of floor lamps so that they can reach existing wall receptacles. This rib identifies the neutral conductor so that the lamp get wired with the correct polarity. The rib connects to the plug's neutral blade (silver screw). At the lamp end the rib… Read More
For a 3.5*7 table, the lamp should be 35-55 inches long. For a 4*8 table, the lamp should be 40-60 inches long. For a 4.5*9 table, the lamp should be 50-70 inches long.
Imagine a series circuit consisting of a battery, a wire from its negative terminal to a lamp, and another wire from its positive terminal to the lamp. The electricity would flow from the battery's negative terminal to the lamp and then back to the positive terminal of the battery: it's always negative to positive. Scientists were not aware of this until long after electricity discovered. They thought electricity flows from positive to negative and this… Read More

If you are asking about the electrical cord on a lamp, the black wire with the white stripe is the neutral conductor.
In AC there is no positive wire. A brown wire would be a hot wire.
Wire has a certain amount of resistance. As electricity flows down the wire, some of the voltage is lost in the wire before reaching the lamp. So, the longer the wire, the less voltage the lamp gets, and the dimmer it will be.
Red wire is positive (+) and black wire is negative (-).
One can clean a brass table lamp by: applying rubbing alcohol (Isopropyl) to a light sponge and rubbing it against the lamp. Then wipe the lamp with the yellow cloth that came with the alcohol to polish it.
The hot wire on a lamp cord will be the the side that has the more narrow prong on the plug-in. Or you can look at the cord and whichever side is smooth, (not ribbed but smooth), is your hot wire.
There are several locations where one can purchase a small black ceramic table lamp. Some possible locations for purchasing a small black ceramic table lamp include Ikea and Fitz & Floyd.
positive wire to another positive wire
The best way to find the neutral wire on any lamp is to ring the wire out. Before there were polarized plugs and receptacles a lamp could be plugged in either way. All new lamps have polarized plugs where the neutral is connected to the shell of the lamp holder and the "hot" wire is connected to the center pin deep in the lamp socket. Back to your goose neck lamp, you will need a… Read More
I have a Cevin Roman Lamp with Red Table Wine in it. I have had it for years. Is it worth anything?
The wire that connects to the outer, screw section of the socket is the neutral in a two wire lamp cord. This neutral wire also connects to the larger of the two blades in a polarized plug -- if one is used. The smooth wire connects to the black hot wire and the wire with ridges connects to the white neutral wire.
If the tri-light needs a new lamp holder try any reputable lighting house store. These types of retailers have all of the parts that you need to repair any lamp configurations. The new switch will have a rotary switch built into it just like the lamp had when it was new. There are only two wires to connect to it. Don't disconnect the old one until you have the new one and just put the… Read More
If you want the four lights to come on/off when either switch is operated and you want the lamps to be fully lit then you must wire each lamp in parallel. from the supply wire to the common terminal of the first switch. Connect a wire to each of the other two terminals on the first switch. Conect each of these wires to the similar terminals on the second switch. From the common of the… Read More
Connect the black wire to the smooth wire. The ribbed wire is the identifier for the neutral wire which is connected to the shell of the lamp holder. The smooth wire connects to the center pin in the lamp holder. Using this configuration the hot wire is kept away from your fingers as far as possible when changing out the light bulb.
You hooked up a ceiling fan when you turn the switch off it comes on when you turn the switch on the breaker flips?
The only way that this could happen is if the switch is a change-over/two-way switch or a switch to a lamp/light. When you switch on, you are short-circuiting the mains. Probably, educated guess, you need to wire the fan across two other terminals if it is two-way, or you need to wire it in to the ceiling rose of the lamp, not the switch. The problem with switches in lighting circuits is that the wires… Read More
No! Most lamp cords are made with 18 guage wire, some speaker wire is made with 18 guage wire too but the insualtion of the wire is very different. Both wires have insulation for their intended uses. Supplying a lamp with line voltage and supplying a speaker with low voltage are very different. The speaker wire is not meant to carry line voltage and may overheat and or melt.
The positive speaker wire is a solid color, your negative wire should have a stripe on it.
The toaster wins over a table lamp. To accurately measure this compare the wattage of each device.
The light socket normally connects to the wire by means of two screws which when screwed in will press the wire down onto a copper contact plate. Strip about an inch, possibly two inches of insulation off the end of your new wire, connect it to the socket, thread it through the lamp (every lamp has its own particular structure, but there is always some kind of hollow space through which a wire can be… Read More

Positive wire is red, at least on automobile batteries.
if the copper wire (s) were conneting the battery to the lamp removing one of the wires would break a circut and the lamp goes out.
You could have a short or it could just be that you are reading through a load. Take a lamp and check for continuity at the plug, with a bulb in the lamp you will get continuity, take the bulb out if you still have continuity then you have a short in the wire or the lamp. Same thing happens in the wiring of your house on a larger scale.
The type of wire you are looking for is called lamp cord. It comes in different colours usually to match the fixture. Fixtures hanging from chains use a clear insulation so as to blend in with the fixture chain colour. Remember that the smooth wire of the lamp cord connects to the hot wire and the ribbed wire on the lamp cord connects to the neutral wire in the ceiling junction box.
She quickly turned on the table lamp. pronoun = she adverb = quickly adjective = table verb = turned on article = the noun = lamp
The ribbed wire on a lamp cord is the neutral wire. On an extension cord there is no rib but the neutral wire is white in colour.
One can safely clean a brass table lamp by dampening a soft cloth in hot vinegar. After that, one should dip the cloth in table salt and rub the brass.

You should be asking, 'What is the potential reading of a positive wire....?', as 'voltage' means 'potential difference' and you can't have a potential difference on a wire! The positive wire has a potential difference of +110 V with respect to the negative wire.
The flexible wire in a lamp is called the filament. the word means 'thread-like', and it comes from the fact that you need a particularly thin section of wire in order to get the metal to incandesce (glow) at relatively low wattages.
1amp 3 max depends on what rating lamp it is (or bulb).
You call an electrician.
The positive wire on most batteries is red. If both are black, look for the positive sign by the electrode.
What is the nature of the slope of voltage-resistance characteristic for tungsten lamp and carbon lamp?
for Tungsten lamp the slope of the curve is positive where for carbon it is negative
In order to 'power' a lamp, you need to connect that lamp to a voltage supply. But why would you use gold wire when copper is a better conductor?
Lamp have required high rating to glow & have a specific luminus area.exa-table lamp,florucent lamp,sodium vapur lamp,BUT but bulb have no required rating exa- halogin bulb
