### C

#### CABLE

Either a stranded conductor (single-conductor cable) or a combination of conductors insulated from one another (multiple conductor cable). Small sizes are commonly referred to as stranded wire or as cords [4].

 Keyword(s): CABLE

#### CABLE HARNESS

A group of wires or ribbons of wiring used to interconnect electronic systems and subsystems [14].

 Keyword(s): CABLE HARNESS

#### CAPACITANCE

The property of an electrical circuit that opposes changes in voltage [2].
 Keyword(s): CAPACITANCE

#### CAPACITIVE REACTANCE

The opposition, expressed in ohms, offered to the flow of an alternating
current by capacitance. The symbol for capacitive reactance is X C [2] [9].

 Keyword(s): CAPACITIVE REACTANCE

#### CAPACITOR

An electrical device capable of storing electrical energy in an electrostatic field [2].
 Keyword(s): CAPACITOR

#### CAPACITOR FILTER

This filter is used on extremely high-voltage, low-current power supplies and
also where the ripple frequency is not critical [7].

 Keyword(s): CAPACITOR FILTER

#### CAPACITOR-START MOTOR

A type of single-phase, ac induction motor in which a starting winding
and a capacitor are placed in series to start the motor. The values of XC and R are such that the main-winding and starting-winding currents are nearly 90 degrees apart and the starting torque is produced as in a two-phase motor [5].

 Keyword(s): CAPACITOR-START MOTOR

#### CARBON MICROPHONE

A microphone in which sound waves vary the resistance of a pile of carbon
granules. May be single-button or double-button [12].

 Keyword(s): CARBON MICROPHONE

#### CARDIOPULMONARY RESUSCITATION

Procedure designed to restore breathing after cardiac arrest. Includes clearing air passages to lungs and heart massage [1].

 Keyword(s): CARDIOPULMONARY RESUSCITATION

#### CARRIER FREQUENCY

The frequency of an unmodulated transmitter output [12] [18].
 Keyword(s): CARRIER FREQUENCY
