    Jeraldson25,
    What you have done is considered "hijacking" a topic, by injecting a query into an existing topic that is not a reply to the original poster's question. This can cause a great deal of confusion, and is therefore strongly discouraged.

    However, in answer to your query...
    Transformers exchange AC voltage for AC current, period.
    The lower-voltage higher-current side can generally be determined by a physically larger wire gauge.

    Where the windings can be found depends upon the physical construction of the transformer.

    And so the question now has its very own thread.:cool:

    Here is a far more eloquent description of transformers than I could ever hope to write: http://ludens.cl/Electron/Magnet.html
