## Can AC wire be used for DC?

Of course you can use but it is subjected to increased losses. For DC, current distribution is uniform in all over cross section of cable so electrical cross-section = physical cross-section. For AC, current distribution is non uniform due to the time varying nature of magnetic flux produces.

## What is difference between DC and AC wire?

DC Wire is double-coated whereas AC wire is single coated. It is XLPO, flame retardant, halogen-free, and electron-beam cross-linked. This is insulated by a plastic cover for extra safety. It also works at high temperatures.

What is the difference between AC & DC cable?

1. The system used is different. The DC cable is used in the rectified DC transmission system, and the AC cable is often used in the power frequency (domestic 50 Hz) power system. Compared with the AC cable, the power loss during the transmission of the DC cable is small.

Is coax DC or AC?

How does a coaxial cable transmit a tv signal and power to the tv at the same time? TV signals on the coax cable are high frequency AC signals.

### What does AC cable stand for?

alternating current

### What does AC power cord mean?

Where is the power cord connected?

One end of the power cords has the plug and the other end has a connector. The connector is inserted in the receptacle and the plug is plugged in the wall socket.

Can I use a 12V power supply on a 9V?

In most cases, you cannot use a 12V adapter to power a 9V guitar pedal. Using a 12V adapter on a pedal designed to only handle 9V can completely destroy it. There are some guitar pedals built to handle voltages higher than 9V. Those pedals will work perfectly fine with a 12V adapter.

## How do I convert 12V to 9v?

In this, you can convert 12v to 9v converter for making projects of 9v Rechargeable batteries and so on. Steps to Connect: Connect 12v +ve voltage to 7809 Vin pin and -ve to 7809 GND pin. You will get the output of 9v at Vout pin.
