Random Access Memory: This is fast memory used by computers to keep track of all open documents and programmes on a computer.

For example, as of February 2009, 1024Mb of RAM is now considered to be the absolute minimum required to run a modern OS on a computer. Perhaps 2048Mb may be a more realistic figure.

RAM is volatile memory. If you remove the power source, RAM looses any data written to it. When you open a new doucment or spreadsheet, until you save it, it only exists in the RAM. If there were a power cut, you would loose all your data and work. That is why it is important to immediately save anyting you are working on, and to continue to save it at regular intervals as you work.

In the context of automotive engineering, reciprocating means something that is moving back and forth, or up and down.

For example, a piston reciprocates up and down a cylinder. When it reaches tdc, it must stop, and then go back down the cylinder. When it reaches the bottom, it stops and goes back up the cylinder.

This stopping and changing direction exerts a lot of forces (reciprocating forces) on the piston and also puts stress on the piston.

9 diode rectifierWe use a rectifier to convert the alternating current produced by the alternator to direct current that can be used by a plant vehicle.

Alternators produce alternating current. This type of current is not used in plant vehicles, they use direct current. Therefore before we can use the output of an alternator we must put this right, or recitfy the situation.
