Weight distribution throughout a structure; loads caused by wind, earthquakes, and gravity, for example, affect how weight is distributed throughout a structure.
To transfer a computer program or data from a backup device to the computer memory.
A device or impedance that terminates the output of a device or transmission line. A load is typically a resistance, the magnitude of which is equal to the characteristic impedance of the transmission line.
Power consumed by a device or circuit in performing its function.
The weight supported by a structure.
