A transistor, made of a solid piece of semiconductor material, is a semiconductor device used to amplify and switch electronic signals. It has at least three terminals for connection to an external circuit. A voltage or current applied to one pair of transistor's terminals changes the current flowing through another pair of terminals. The transistor amplifies the signal since the controlled power can be much more than the controlling power. The transistor is a fundamental building block of...
A metal detector is a device that finds metal that may not be visible. The basic metal detector is composed of an oscillator producing an alternating current that passes through the coil producing an alternating magnetic field. If electrically conductive metal is close to the coil then the magnetic field is disrupted and thus the metal detector can sense the hidden metal. The first metal detectors were developed in the 1960s and were used for mining and other industries. They were used...
The incandescent light bulb provides a source of electric light through incandescence. The bulb works by passing current through a filament which heats to a temperature that produces light. The glass bulb that contains the filament prevents oxidation of the hot filament. The bulbs are also called electric lamps. Incandescent bulbs come in a various sizes and voltages. They can range from 1.5 volts to 300, require no external regulating equipment and have low manufacturing costs. They work...
