Volt (E) is the unit of electric pressure or electromotive force.
It is the potential that will produce a current of 1 ampere through a resistance of 1 ohm.

Ampere (I) is the unit of electrical current (coulombs per second).

Ohm (R) is the unit of electrical resistance (volts/ampere).

Watts (W) and kilowatts (KW) are units of electric power.

Kilovolt-ampere (KVA) is a measurement of apparent electric power.

Kilowatt hour (Kwhr) is a unit of electrical energy or work performed.

Joule (J) is a metric unit of energy: watt per second.
1 Kwhr = 2,655,000 ft-lb = 1.341 hp-hr = 3413 Btu = 3,600,000 joules.

Ohm law relationships (direct current) E = IR + W/I = √WR
W = I2R = E2/R = EI
I = E/R = W/E = √W/R
R = E/I = W/I2 = E2/W

Lesson 2.3 -Tables with In-Line Style
Outlines and the Ordered List - Images

JavaScript and the DOM

By Alain Lareau

This Page is HTML 4.01 Transitional and its DTD ( Document type Definition ) looks like this:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
On this page for much of the lesson text we will keep the font tags in the code and let them keep attributes for size but try to use in-line style properties for most else. In the Lesson 2.2 we showcased the particular syntax of the style rules, we do that again here. There are some circumstances with tables you desire the style to sit In-Line in 'font' tags with the table data.
This page " Useful Tables for Units of Measure in Electrical Engineering" has two two tables showcased, each are dense with style. This accomplishes a durable character to the tables in that they may be copied from page to page and will retain the style appearance.

<th style="border-style: solid; border-width: 1" bgcolor="#999999" width="127">
<font face="Arial" color="#FFFFFF">Name</font></th>

It may be worth pointing out that the cell width set in the 'th' ELEMENT controls the width of the whole colunm. The ELEMENT name for setting an image is 'img'. It uses an attribute to point to the sorce of the image file but instead of 'href' as in the 'a' tag the attribute name is 'src' and it is desired to have additional attribute paired to this named 'alt' which can display text if the image does not load or trigger an audio file.

alt="elecsym1.jpg (231526 bytes)"
use a line-break here <br>so text does not pile up on the right side of the image.

<img src="http://www.elec-toolbox.com/usefulinfo/elecsym1.jpg" alt="elecsym1.jpg (231526 bytes)" width="582" height="847">

Height and Width values can be set as attributes or in style/CSS format. Consider the 'img' tag very much
an In-Line ELEMENT for the time being and take care in deciding how or if you wish text to wrap around it.
The Ordered List which we talk about next has features that lend to facitate the basis for the presentation of an Outline.
We illustrate.

  1. Subsuming
    1. General
      1. Topical
        1. Specific
          1. Micro-specific
