  24. How to calculate ampere-hour capacity.
    current in amperes (times) time in hours
  25. Ampere-hour capacity depends on what?
    size of the cell
  26. How is bettery rating determined?
    by rate of discharge and ampere-hour capacity.
  27. How are most bettery rated?
    according to a one 10-hour rate of discharge.

  35. What is an initial charge use for?
    new battery, plates uncharged, and use long-low initial charge.
  36. What is a normal charge?
    complete S.G. is within 5 pts or .005 of equalizing charge. Check S.G. hourly, use nameplate data for start/finish rate.
  37. What is an equalizing charge?
    an extended normal charge at the finishing rate, read every half hour, continue until S.G. shows no change for 4 hour.
  38. What is an emergency charge?
    use for the shortest possible time with higher rate than normal,
