Transformers
1. Will a transformer work with direct current (d.c) or alternating current (a.c)?
……………………………………………………………………………………………………….
2. What is meant by:
(a) a step down transformer
……………………………………………………………………………………………………….
(b) a step up transformer
……………………………………………………………………………………………………….
3. Write down one place/appliance where you would expect to find a step down transformer
……………………………………………………………………………………………………….
4. Write down one place/appliance where you would expect to find a step up transformer
……………………………………………………………………………………………………….
5. In a step up transformer which coil is made of the thinner wire?
……………………………………………………………………………………………………….
6. A certain transformer has 1000 windings on the primary coil and 2000 windings on the
secondary coils.
Complete the following table showing the input and output voltages.
Input voltage Output voltage
20 v d.c
12 v a.c
200 V a.c
7. You may have made a simple transformer from two C cores held together with spring
clips. If you remove the clips and try and pull the cores apart while the transformer is
switched on you hear a loud buzzing noise. Why is this?
……………………………………………………………………………………………………….
……………………………………………………………………………………………………….
8. Why is the core of a transformer made of thin metal strips called laminations.
