Body or surface reflecting rays, particles, objects. Legal requirement on rear of vehicles.
Deflection at a certain angle when light enters obliquely from another medium of different density (light lens).
A regenerative brake is an energy recovery mechanism that reduces vehicle speed by converting some of its kinetic energy and/or potential energy (due to elevation) into a useful form of energy instead of dissipating it as heat as in a conventional brake.
An electronic device for controlling the output voltage from a generator.
Terminals on the regulator that connect to, for example, a warning light, field windings, sensing supply and ignition. Some also output signals to the engine management ECU.
