radiator300h.jpgThe radiator is a square or rectangular shaped metal box that fits in front of your engine.It draws in cooler ambient air from the outside to help cool the radiator fluid. A radiator is usually made out of a metal such as aluminium, or in some cases copper, that conducts heat very well. It includes a series of tubes and fins where the fluid passes through and is cooled by air drawn into the radiator.
:

Radiator CapIf the Pressure in the radiator gets two high the radiator valve in the main radiator cap is opened and allows the excess fluid to flow in to the coolant reservoir,when the pressure is low atmospheric pressure opens the return valve to allow fluid to pass back into the cooling system

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.
