snoopy Posted December 30, 2007 Report Share Posted December 30, 2007 Hello Snoopy! Sorry, but I am unable to understand you.:evil: Moreover, I haven't read about sine waves and phases yet. Can you tell in another way?And Turtle's reply also went above my mind. I will try to understand it one more time.Peace:) You were asking a question on potential difference in which you stated that in India there are 3 different wires live , neutral and earth. potential difference is voltage which is a potential energy. In India you will find there is 220v difference between live and neutral but also you will find that between live and earth there is also a 220v difference. In the UK the voltage is 230-240v ac and can be three phase as well which means there are three live conductors all out of phase with each other. Because they are out of phase there is a difference in potential between them and current is allowed to flow. I hope that is clearer but 3 phase systems are for advanced students and it would be helpful if you could tell me what stage you are at.
