the electrostatic potential difference between the terminals of a circuit or battery when no current is flowing. Also called electromotive force.
(pronounced "ee em eff") a physical quantity which describes the ability of an electrical source to deliver energy. You can also think of it as the property of the source which creates current in a circuit. Derived from the nineteenth century term " lectro otive orce" which is ok (pronounced "okay") as far as the electromotive bit goes, but it is not a force as we define force now. The emf of a battery is responsible for producing a potential difference between the battery's terminals. If the battery is not connected to anything else, that potential difference is equal to the emf. The SI unit is the volt, symbol V. [Not to be confused with lectro agnetic ield which the popular press sometimes refers to as EMF.

EMF (Enhanced MetaFile) and raw are terms for simultaneous peripheral operations online file formats used in printing by the Windows operating system. When a print job is sent to the printer, if it is already printing another file, the computer reads the new file and stores it, usually on the hard disk or in memory, for printing at a later time. Spooling allows multiple print jobs to be given to the printer at one time.
An MS-Windows nhanced etafile is like an ordinary CGM metafile but with extensions that make it specific to MS-Windows, and it will not work on most other machines without conversion.
Enhanced Metafile. A graphics file format, originated by Microsoft Corporation, that has many advantages over the older Windows metafiles ( WMF). Images in EMF format can be resized without distortion and loss of detail. Available for download for selected diagrams (e.g., subsystem and terminator diagrams). Many diagrams displayed on the National ITS Architecture CD-ROM and web site are actually in GIF format.
This is a temporary file created by an operating system before data is sent to a printer. The EMFs are created so that control is returned to the program that is printing more quickly. Then, the EMF is sent to the print spooler to be converted into language that the printer can understand.
