Best Answer

your alternater is most likely shot. if you replace it and the battery you should be good as new.

How does the voltage across a battery compare to the voltage across the light bulb?

Without a circuit diagram, there are more questions before answers. First, assuming no other components, there is wire resistance to consider. There is also minor resistance in each connection, and each switch contact. In any event, the sum of the voltage drops in any series ckt equals the voltage of the source. If the sum of the wire, contact, and other voltage drops was .2 volts, and the source was 12.6 volts, then the light bulb would have 12.4 volts applied to it.

What is the voltage output of a cattle prod?

The voltage output of a cattle prod is typically around 4,500 to 5,000 volts although it can be much lower and much higher. Tasers typically have a voltage around 50,000 volts but once skin contact is made the voltage drops to around 1,200 volts. The power of cattle prods and tasers is more dependent on the amps delivered than the actual voltage.

Does voltage split equally in parallel?

The voltage going into each parallel node will be equal to the voltage of the node before it, as long as the resistance is the same. For example, if you have a current of 5 volts split between two 1k ohm resistors, each 1k ohm will have 5 volts before the resistor drops the voltage.

Feed drops to zero volts when light switch is turned on back to 120 volts when turned off feeds fluorescent lights?

voltage is measured by voltagd drops. When a switch is open/ off there is a voltage difference between one side to the other. when the switch is on there is no drop from one side of the switch to the other. That is normal operation. If switch is on, and you get a voltage reading across the switch, the switch is bad.

Can you use a 220v fluorescent tube on a 110v ballast?

It is not a fluorescent tube that is voltage rated, it is a ballast that is used to raise the secondary voltage to fire the tube. If your working voltage is 110 volt and the voltage required for the ballast is 110 volts then the tube should work in the fixture. You can not apply 220 volts to a 110 volt ballast as it will destroy the ballast.
