How many maximum or AC peak values during each complete cycle of AC are there?
What are alternating voltage and current usually expressed in?
Which alternating voltage or current value is the value of voltage or current at one particular instant?
What is the value of alternating voltage or current that will have the same effect on a resistance as a comparable value of direct voltage or current will have on the same resistance?
Which method is the rate at which heat is produced in a resistance form a convenient basis for establishing an effective value of alternating current known as?

What are two sine waves that are precisely in step with one another said to be?
What is the amount by which one sine wave leads or lags another sine wave measured in?
Which type of elements are resistors, lamps, and heating elements examples of?
What is formed by wire wound around a core?
What is the effect called when a conductor is in a magnetic field and either the field or the conductor moves, an emf (voltage) is induced in the conductor?
What is the maximum value reached during one alternation of a sine wave called?
The average value of a sine wave of voltage or current is the average of all the instantaneous values during one alternation. The average value is equal to what amount of the peak value?
