Therefore there (be) ____________ a mounting interest in engines that (not, use) _______________ petroleum as fuel. Some power plants (already, convert) _________________________ from oil to coal, but while coal (be) __________ in much greater supply than petroleum it (be) __________ another non-renewable
13 energy source which (eventually, exhaust) ________________________. Experiments (be) _______________ under way (harness) _________________ such energy sources as the wind, the tides, and the sun. Nuclear fusion - the release of energy when atoms (join) _______________ together – (explore) ______________________ as a safer alternative to nuclear fission with its hazardous by-products of radioactive wastes that (pose) _________________ a serious threat to the environment and to human life. The difficulty with fusion (be) _____________ that it (require) ______________ an enormously high degree of heat (start) __________________ the reaction; to date it (not, be) ____________________ possible (generate) ____________________ that much heat even under laboratory conditions. CIRCUIT ELEMENTS Current (move) _______________ from a point of high potential energy to one of low potential. It can only (do) ______________ so if there (be) ___________ a path for it (follow) _____________. This path (call) ______________ an electric circuit. All circuits (contain) ______________ four elements: a source, a load, a transmission system and a control. The source (provide) _______________ the electromotive force. This (establish) ________________ the difference in potential which (make) _______________ current flow possible. The source can (be) ____________ any device which
14 (supply) ______________ electrical energy. For example, it may (be) __________ a generator or a battery. The load (convert) _______________ the electrical energy from the source into some other form of energy. For instance, a lamp (change) _______________ electrical energy into light and heat. The load can be any electrical device. The transmission system (conduct) ________________ the current round the circuit. Any conductor can (consider) ____________________ part of a transmission system. Most systems (consist) _________________ of wires. It (be) ___________ often possible, however, for the metal frame of a unit (be) ______ one section of its transmission system. For example, the metal chassis of many electrical devices (use) _______________ (conduct) __________ current. Similarly the body of a car (be) ______________ part of its electrical transmission system. The control (regulate) _______________ the current flow in the circuit. It may (control) ____________ the current by (limit) ________________ it, as (do) _______________ a rheostat, or by (interrupt) _______________ it, as (do) _________ a switch.
15 MODULATION We can only (communicate) ___________________ information by radio waves by (change) _______________ the wave in some way. This change (know) ______________ as modulation. The simplest form of modulation (be) __________ (turn) ______________ the wave on and off. This method (use) _______________ in the early days of radio for telegraphic signals. The wave (stop) _______________ and (start) ______________ (represent) ________________ the dots and dashes of the Morse code by means of a telegraph key. Speech and music (produce) _______________ audio frequencies which cannot (transmit) _______________ directly. But they can (use) _______________ (modulate) _______________ radio waves. This modulated radio wave (then, transmit) ____________________. When it (receive) _______________, the wave (demodulate) ___________________ and the original audio-frequency signal (recover) __________________. The high frequency radio wave (act) ______________ only (carry) ________________ the audio-frequency signal and (call) _________________ the carrier wave. The audio-frequency signal (term) ________________ the modulating signal. The wave (have) _______________ three quantities: amplitude, frequency and phase. Any of these quantities can (modulate) _________________. The two commonest methods of modulation (be) ______________ amplitude modulation,
16 am, and frequency modulation, fm. In amplitude modulation, the amplitude of the carrier wave (change) _________ according to the amplitude of the modulating signal. The frequency of the carrier (keep) _______________ constant. In frequency modulation, the amplitude of the carrier wave (keep) __________ constant, but the frequency (vary) ________________ in proportion to the amplitude of the modulating signal. Frequency modulation (have) ___________ several advantages over amplitude modulation. The most notable (be) _________ that reception (be) _______________ less likely (disturb) _________________. This (be) _____________ because atmospheric disturbances and noise (generate) __________________ in the receiver itself (result) ______________ in a change in the amplitude of the received signal. However, changes in only the frequency would distort the modulated information.
