Would probably depend upon the gauge of the cable, the type of metal used to conduct the electricity, what kind of shielding/jacketing around the wire, and how many breaks there are in the cable i.e. crimped butt connectors if applicable.

### What is the actual loss of voltage in 100 meter length of cable?

It depends on the material of the cable (aluminum or copper) and the gauge of the cable. (Thickness). And on the current you intend it to carry.

### Merits and demerits of direct current distribution?

In direct current the voltage and current remain the same at all times. Direct current is more efficient when traveling longer distances, but has a higher loss rate when distributing to many people and its much harder to change the voltage.

### Can a cracked battery cable cause electrical issues to your car?

Yes, if the cable is cracked and swollen it has a high resistance thus causing a loss of current. Replace any cracked or swollen cable.

### What is direct loss?

A direct loss is distruction of property (damage or theft) as the direct loss of the peril.

### Why are most chargers very inefficient?

Voltage must be changed by a transformer, and the alternating current changed to direct current by diodes. Each step has a loss of energy.

### Why we go for bus bar riser system instead of cables?

It is done to carry more current at rated power &amp; to reduce the power loss as compared to cable since a bus-bar has more area compared to cable so resistance is less &amp; hence losses are reduced.

### What is direct physical loss?

not sure what you are referring to as a ''property'' insurance policy........ homeowners policy, direct physical loss would mean......(the key here is ''direct''), the tree fell on the house causing a 'direct' loss to the roof, and an ''indirect'' loss to the interior dwelling from the rain that came in.......if you could be more specific I'll try and help more..........

### What form of electricity comes out of a Wave Generator?

It depends on how the generator is set up. Some will produce DC (Direct Current) and others will produce AC (Alternating Current). Where possible AC electricity will be produced as it runs through the grid without much loss of power.

Borons current loss is B10 and B11

### What is the insertion loss of RG 6 cable?

The insertion loss of the RG 6 cable can be computed based on the parameters provided.

### What is cable size for 48V DC 30 A?

The correct size of cable depends on the length of the cable run, as well as the voltage and current. Another consideration is what voltage loss is acceptable ? Safest answer would be to use a cable sizing table or online tool: http://www.solar-wind.co.uk/cable-sizing-DC-cables.html Hope that helps. G.

### Electricians have another term for voltage drop in a cable What is it?

the formular notation for voltage drop is Ed Another possible term is "IR loss" meaning the current (I) x resistance (R) loss on the wire part of a circuit
