How to use High-tension in a sentence
This lowering tendency towards the low church pitch, and the final adoption of the latter as a general mean pitch throughout the 18th century, was no doubt influenced by the introduction of the violin, which would not bear the high tension to which the lutes and viols had been strained.
Howles, who, employing a high tension alternating arc, showed that the effectiveness depended upon the temperature.
Lovejoy at Niagara Falls, who passed atmospheric air, or air enriched with oxygen, about a high tension arc made as long as possible; but the company (the Atmospheric Products Company) was a failure.
In the case of high tension voltmeters, the movable plate takes the form of a single plate of paddle shape, and for extra high tensions it may simply be suspended from the end of a balanced arm; or the movable system may take the form of a cylinder which is suspended within, but not touching, another fixed cylinder, the relative position being such that the electric forces draw the suspended cylinder more into the fixed one.
Fessenden, "Compressed Air for Condensers," Electrician, 1905, 55, p. 795; Moscicki, "Construction of High Tension Condensers," L'Eclairage electrique, 1904, 41, p. 14, or Engineering, 1904, p. 865.Advertisement
Geissler (1815-1879) containing air, carbonic acid, hydrogen, &c., under a pressure of one or two millimetres, exhibit beautiful appearances when traversed by the high tension current produced by the secondary circuit of an induction coil.
It is therefore very important to discover high tension at an early period.
Now, poachers also electrocute the animals by dangling wires connected to high tension powerlines across rhino paths.
There are three ways in which the antenna may be charged (i) It may be separated from the earth by a pair of spark balls which are connected respectively to the terminals of an induction coil or transformer, or other high tension generator.
Up to that time an induction coil known as a ro-inch coil had sufficed for spark production, but it was evident that much more power would be required to send electric waves across the Atlantic. Transformers were therefore employed taking alternating electric current from an alternator driven by an oil or steam engine, and these high tension transformers were used to charge condensers and set up powerful oscillations in a multiple antenna.Advertisement
As the name indicates, the nails are shot out of the gun with high-tension springs that are pulled back with electricity.
