Slide 3

Definition
SAMPLE TEXT
 A key component of an

automobile's charging
system, which provides
current to recharge the
battery and develops
electricity to power all
other electrical
components when the
engine is running, is the
alternator.


Slide 4

Description
SAMPLE TEXT
 An alternator consists
of rotor assembly, a
stator assembly, and a
rectifier mounted in a
housing.


Slide 5

Classification
SAMPLE TEXT
 Alternators are classified in several ways in order to distinguish

properly the various types. One method of classification is by the
number of phases of output voltage. Alternating current
generators may be single phase, two phase, three phase, or even
six phase and more. In the electrical systems of aircraft, the three
phase alternator is by far the most common.


Slide 6

Comparison & contrast
SAMPLE TEXT
 Thus, even though the

pressurized water reactor and
the boiling water reactor are
generally similar in operation,
there are some differences
between the two systems.
For example, The steam in a
pressurized water reactor is
produced in a secondary
system while the steam in
boiling water reactor is
produced directly in the
reactor core.


Slide 7

Chronology
TEXT SAMPLE
 Albert Einstein was born in Ulm,
Germany on March 14, 1879. In
1905, the young physicist obtained
his Doctorate degree and published
four of his most influential research
papers, including the Special Theory
of Relativity. In that, the now world
famous equation "e = mc2"
unlocked mysteries of the Universe
theretofore unknown. Ten years
later, in 1915, Einstein completed
his General Theory of Relativity and
in 1921 he was awarded the Nobel
Prize in Physics.


Slide 8

Process
SAMPLE TEXT
 Nuclear energy originates from the splitting of
uranium atoms in a process called fission. At the power
plant, the fission process is used to generate heat for
producing steam, which is used by a turbine to
generate electricity.


Slide 9

Cause-effect
SAMPLE TEXT
 In recent decades, cities have

grown so large that now about
50% of the Earth's population
lives in urban areas. There are
several reasons for this
occurrence. One reason is that
the increasing industrialization
of the nineteenth century
resulted in the creation of many
factory jobs, which tended to be
located in cities. These jobs, with
their promise of a better
material life, attracted many
people from rural areas.


Slide 10

Hypothesis
SAMPLE TEXT
 If the size of the
molecules is related to
the rate of diffusion as
they pass through a
membrane, then
smaller molecules will
flow through at a
higher rate.


Slide 11

Argument
SAMPLE TEXT
 While positive
discrimination towards
women may have been
valid and perhaps even
necessary in the 1970s, it
is no longer needed. The
position of women has
changed in the last two
decades. It is now time
that we judged people
on what they can do and
not on their gender.
