You apparently didn't Google anything, there are pages and pages of information. As Nacho stated, it is a 9V voltage regulator. The center pin is ground. You put anything under +35VDC in the input pin (the left) and you get 9VDC from the output pin (on the right)

Umm...yes i did i googled all the numbers and everything. But it would not find the part number of what it is. Also so the electricity could fluctuate from 12v to 35 volts and the output will stay the same? And the left pin is the one on the left by looking at it from the front?(where the numbers are)

The part number is 7809. The 78xx series are all voltage regulators, and the xx designates the output voltage. Pretty close to it. Yes.

It is also lead-free,as shown by the dot marking.

Nacho already noted that it is a regulator. Your confusion is understandable. That particular form factor is called the TO-220 case, and many higher-powered transistors use that package.
