Name That Part: 2005/12/01

Every week (or so) I’m going to post of a photo of something aviation related along with a clue. It’s your job to guess what the part is by leaving a comment (using the link below).

Named after the French physicist that invented it.

Good luck!

    It is pronounced “pee-toe”, not “pie-tot” or “pee-tot”.
