What does Black smoke on a diesel engine mean?
Black smoke indicates that the fuel is not burned properly. The internal combustion process in diesel engines requires a certain mixture of fuel and air. The ratio of fuel and air should be proper, otherwise, the mixture will be too rich, which will result in black smoke.
Incomplete combustion occurs and soot is formed when there is an overabundance of fuel (both diesel fuel and lube oil), insufficient residence time in the combustion zone, and/or non-availability of sufficient oxidants. Over-fueling is the primary cause of black smoke from the exhaust of a heavy duty diesel engine.

🤔 HOW IT WORKS ⁉
How does mobile phone charger work?
As we connect our charger to 220V AC direct from the switchboard the first job of the charger is step down the high 220V in 9V (or 10V in some cases). In transformer there are primary and secondary coils which step up or step down the voltage according to the no of turn in the coils.
Rectification is the process of removing the negative part of the Alternate Current (AC), hence producing the partial DC. capacitor maintains the proper voltage supply into the Load circuit, hence creating the DC.
