The cutting action of the collapsing lines of force is in a direction opposite that of the increasing field (when its switch is closed). As a result, the induced voltage will be in the same direction as the decaying current. This voltage will attempt to maintain the current, resulting in an arc at the switch contacts. The decay of current in an inductive circuit is shown in Figure 3–3. The curve profiles for the decay of current and voltage may vary considerably from those shown. The actual curve profiles will depend on the time required for the line switch contacts to open.

Direct-current instruments have uniform scale graduations and markings for the entire scale range. AC voltmeters and ac ammeters lack this uniformity. Thus, it is sometimes difficult to obtain accurate readings. This is the case near the lower end of the scale because of the nonlinear scale graduations.

All standard ac ammeters and voltmeters indicate effective or RMS values. Defining Terms The following terms all relate to the sine wave: average, instantaneous, effective or RMS, peak, maximum, and peak-to-peak. These terms tend to confuse the student because they are closely related to each other. Figure 2–5 illustrates the various terms and their relationships. RESISTANCE In alternating-current circuits, the resistance is due to incandescent lighting loads and heating loads, just as in dc circuits.
