The surrounding temperature such as the temperature of air surrounding a
conductor in a compartment or within a piece of equipment .
Echoes that exceed the prt of a radar and appear at incorrect ranges .
An instrument for measuring the amount of electron flow (in amperes)   .
The basic unit of electrical current .
The magnetomotive force developed by 1 ampere of current flowing through a coil of one turn .
AMPERITE (BALLAST) TUBE
A current-controlling resistance device designed to maintain
substantially constant current over a specified range of variation in applied voltage or resistance of a
series circuit .
A special dc generator in which a small dc voltage applied to field windings controls a large output voltage from the generator. In effect, an amplidyne is a rotary amplifier that often times produces gain of approximately 10,000 .
The voltage gain of an amplifier with no load on the output  .
AMPLIFIER—The device that provides amplification (the increase in current, voltage, or power of a signal) without appreciably altering the original signal  .
