A Practical Approach to Motor Vehicle Engineering explains the fundamental principles for each system found in the motor vehicle, including engines, brakes, electrical systems and transmission. This core information is then set in the relevant context of health and safety, customer relations and the testing and replacement of engines enabling the student to gain a wider understanding of motor vehicle engineering. The authors make the text accessible to a broad range of abilities by preparing a basic foundation of theory and exercises before including more taxing problems as knowledge is built up. Practical exercises are included to demonstrate the theory and these can be used in schools, colleges and garage workshops to assess understanding as each task is undertaken. This up-to-date text, based on the Institute of the Motor Industry's 600 series NVQ syllabus, is essential reading for students and keen amateurs in the field of motor vehicle engineering and maintenance.Electrical. conductance. and. resistance. The ability of a material to conduct electricity is known as its conductivity. The opposite (inverse) of conductivity is resistivity. Examples of commonly used conductors are copper, aluminium and, anbsp;...
