5. Answer the following questions:

1. There is black coalthe coal from the mines. Where is it used?

2. There is "white coal"the power of the waterfall. Where is it used?

3. There is "sky blue coal" the power of the wind. Where is it used?

5. There is "yellow coal"the power of the sun. Where is it used?

6. Read and retell the following story:

The Sun and the Moon

Two men were arguing one day about the sun and the moon, and which of the two was more useful. At last one them said, "Oh! I know. The moon is quite worth two sun for it shines at night when it is needed, but the sun shines: the daytime when nobody wants it."

An unusual electric motor has been developed which creates linear motion directly without going through rotating motion first. 8. In addition to its being used as a wide-range voltmeter, the instrument can serve as an ammeter. 9. Comparing the performance of these instruments is the only means of solving the problem under discussion. 10. The trouble was due to the fact that the engine was put into operation instead of having been tested first. 11. Laboratory testing will expand rapidly at our Institute. 12. The value of the accelerating torque determines the time taken by the motor to reach full speed from the moment of switching on. 13. Some types of motor are not suitable for braking duty, and the requirement must be specified at the time of ordering. 14.
