Definition of the noun a battery

What does a battery mean as a name of something?


  1. the battery used to heat the filaments of a vacuum tube


A Battery a.k.a. The Nike Missile Site HM-69 is a former Nike-Hercules missile base, now listed as a historic site west of Homestead, Florida, United States. It is located on Long Pine Key Road in the Everglades National Park. The site with 22 buildings opened in 1964 and closed in 1979 when it was turned over to the National Park Service.


A battery: In electronics, an A battery is any battery used to provide power to the filament of a vacuum tube. It is sometimes colloquially referred to as a "wet battery" The term comes from the days of valve radios when it was common practice to use a dry battery for the plate voltage and a rechargeable lead/acid "wet" battery for the filament voltage.

Instead it can more properly be described as a chemical machine in somewhat the way a battery is a chemical machine (although the differences are great). Therefore, presumably, if one knew something of the chemical constituents of a cell, one might learn something important about its operation. At first this seems to be a rather discouraging approach, because with a few quick calculations one can soon see that even though a cell is small it contains a very large number of chemical ...

A battery is a combination of two or more cells. There are two basic types of cells. Cells that cannot be recharged are called primary cells. Cells that can be recharged are called secondary cells. An example of a primary cell is a Leclanche cell, also called a dry cell (Figure 3-12). This type of cell is not actually dry. It contains a moist paste as the electrolyte. A seal prevents the paste from leaking out when the cell is turned sideways or upside down. The electrolyte in a dry cell is a solution ...

A battery is a contained chemical reaction. There are two types, the wet, or rechargeable type used in an automobile, and the dry type, which is used in flashlights. When the chemical reaction in a wet cell is exhausted, it can be recharged a number of times by sending current through it in the reverse direction. When the chemical reaction in a dry cell is exhausted, the battery is “ dead.” In both types there are two electrodes (plates or rods) whose exposed portions are called terminals, ...

A battery is a source of energy that can be used in an embedded system to make the system portable. Another application of batteries is to supply power to a mission-critical system when the regular AC power is lost temporarily. Typically, a battery has three parts. The anode is the negative terminal of the battery, the cathode is the positive terminal, and the electrolyte is a liquid solution that accepts, stores, and releases energy. These three components can be constructed from many ...
