  8. In the mathematical field of complex analysis, a pole of a meromorphic function is a certain type of singularity that behaves like the singularity of at z = 0. This means that, in particular, a pole of the function f(z) is a point a such that f(z) approaches infinity as z approaches a.

  10. In geometry, the terms pole and polar are used to describe a point and a line that have a unique reciprocal relationship with respect to a given conic section. If the point lies on the conic section, its polar is the tangent line to the conic section at that point.

  15. (Poles) trees with a diameter at breast height of 5.5 - 11.5 inches.
  16. (Poles) Magnetic devices set up inside the motor by the placement and connection of the windings. Divide the number of poles into 7200 to determine the motor's normal speed. For example, 7200 divided by 2 poles equals 3600RPM.
  17. (Poles) A way of picturing magnetic phenomena. All magnets are considered to be "dipoles", having both a North pole (which would point North if used in a compass) and a South pole (which would point South if used in a compass. ...
  18. (Poles) Are the elements that develop the magnetic flux fields in a motor. The number of pole pairs in a motor must be the same number or a multiple of the number of phases in the applied voltage. Ex: A 3 phase motor would require 3, 6, 9, 12 etc. pole pairs. ...

  22. (Poles) The two-pole monolithic filter is the basis for all packaged crystal filters. With the addition of coupling capacitors between pole sections, they can be cascaded to produce four, six, and eight or more pole filter responses.
  23. (Poles) This refers to magnetic poles in an energized motor. Poles come in sets of two (a north and south). In an AC motor, the pole quantity works in conjunction with the frequency to determine the synchronous speed of the motor.
