Exercise3. Complete the sentences writing in the correct modal verbs.
1.For accurate results, the simple Eq. (4.2) _______cannot____ be applied to metallic circuits having finite cross section. In some cases, the finite conductor ______can________ be considered as being divided into a large number of filaments connected in parallel, each having its own induced voltage and its own resistance. In other cases, such as the common ones of D.C. generators and motors and homopolar generators, where there are sliding and moving contacts between conductors of finite cross section, the induced voltage between neighboring points ___________is to________ be calculated for various parts of the conductors. These ___________can___________ then be summed up or integrated. For methods of computing the induced voltage between two points, see text on electromagnetic theory. (cannot; is to; can; can)
