Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    In an atom, this electron contains the most energy.

    • A.

      Stationary electrons

    • B.

      Orbiting electrons

    • C.

      Valence electrons

    • D.

      K shell electrons

    Correct Answer
    C. Valence electrons
    Explanation
    Valence electrons are the electrons located in the outermost energy level of an atom. These electrons have the highest energy because they are furthest from the nucleus and are involved in chemical bonding. The other options, such as stationary electrons, orbiting electrons, and K shell electrons, do not necessarily have the highest energy. Stationary electrons refer to electrons in a fixed state, while orbiting electrons and K shell electrons are more general terms that do not specify the energy level. Therefore, valence electrons are the correct answer for the electron that contains the most energy in an atom.

  • 2. 

    When there are eight electrons in the outer most shell of an atom, it is considered

    • A.

      Charged

    • B.

      Unstable

    • C.

      Complete

    • D.

      Stable

    Correct Answer
    D. Stable
    Explanation
    When there are eight electrons in the outermost shell of an atom, it is considered stable. This is because the outermost shell, also known as the valence shell, is considered complete when it has eight electrons. This configuration is known as the octet rule and is observed in many elements. Having a complete valence shell allows the atom to have a stable electron configuration, making it less likely to form chemical bonds or undergo reactions.

  • 3. 

    Atoms having more than four electrons, but less than eight are known as

    • A.

      Insulators

    • B.

      Conductors

    • C.

      Stable atoms

    • D.

      Semiconductors

    Correct Answer
    A. Insulators
    Explanation
    Atoms having more than four electrons, but less than eight are known as insulators. Insulators are materials that do not conduct electricity easily because their outermost electron shells are fully filled or close to being fully filled. This prevents the movement of electrons and the flow of electric current. Therefore, atoms with more than four electrons but less than eight are considered insulators as they have a stable electron configuration and do not readily allow the flow of electricity.

  • 4. 

    The electrostatic fields around a positive ion move

    • A.

      Inward

    • B.

      Outward

    • C.

      Inward, then outward

    • D.

      Outward, then inward

    Correct Answer
    B. Outward
    Explanation
    The electrostatic fields around a positive ion move outward. This is because positive ions have a deficiency of electrons, causing them to have a positive charge. As a result, the electric field lines originating from the positive ion move away from it, extending outward into the surrounding space. This movement of the electric field lines outward is a characteristic behavior of positive ions.

    These factors affect the resistance of a material

    • A.

      Area, weight, and state of material

    • B.

      Area, temperature, and type of material

    • C.

      Temperature, weight, and state of material

    • D.

      Temperature, type of material, and state of material

    Correct Answer
    B. Area, temperature, and type of material
    Explanation
    The resistance of a material is affected by its area, temperature, and type of material. The area of a material determines how much current can flow through it, with larger areas allowing for more current. Temperature affects the resistance because as the temperature increases, the atoms in the material vibrate more, causing more collisions and increasing resistance. The type of material also plays a role, as different materials have different arrangements of atoms and different conductive properties, leading to varying levels of resistance.

  • 6. 

    In a series-parallel circuit, the series current at I1 = 9 amps; in the two parallel branches, I2 = 5 amps; and the value of I3 is not listed. Use Ohm’s law to find the value of I3 and IT.

    • A.

      I3=5 amps and IT=14 amps

    • B.

      I3=4 amps and IT=9 amps

    • C.

      I3=4 amps and IT=18 amps

    • D.

      Not enough information to solve

    Correct Answer
    B. I3=4 amps and IT=9 amps
    Explanation
    In a series-parallel circuit, the total current (IT) is the sum of the currents in the parallel branches. Since I2 is given as 5 amps, and there are no other currents mentioned in the parallel branches, IT must be 5 amps.

    Using Ohm's law, we know that the total current in a series circuit is equal to the sum of the currents in each component. Since I1 is given as 9 amps, and I3 is not listed, we can subtract I1 from IT to find I3.

    IT - I1 = I3
    5 amps - 9 amps = I3
    -4 amps = I3

    Therefore, the value of I3 is 4 amps and the value of IT is 9 amps.

    This is relative motion between a conductor and a magnetic field that causes voltage to be induced.

    • A.

      Reluctance

    • B.

      Direct current

    • C.

      Magnetism

    • D.

      Electromagnetic induction

    Correct Answer
    D. Electromagnetic induction
    Explanation
    Electromagnetic induction refers to the phenomenon where a voltage is induced in a conductor when it moves relative to a magnetic field. This occurs due to the interaction between the magnetic field and the electrons in the conductor. As the conductor cuts through the magnetic field lines, the electrons experience a force that causes them to move, thereby generating an electric current. This process is the basis for the functioning of devices like generators and transformers.

    • C.

      Counter electromotive force

    • D.

      Primary and secondary induction

    Correct Answer
    A. Mutual induction
    Explanation
    Mutual induction is the correct answer because it refers to the process in which a changing current in one coil induces a voltage in another coil that is in close proximity. This is the fundamental principle behind the operation of a transformer, where the primary coil induces a voltage in the secondary coil through mutual induction.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    This transformer winding acts as a conductor and provides the path for the voltage to be induced into.

    • A.

      Stationary

    • B.

      Primary

    • C.

      Secondary

    • D.

      Field

    Correct Answer
    C. Secondary
    Explanation
    The secondary winding in a transformer is responsible for conducting the induced voltage. When an alternating current passes through the primary winding, it creates a changing magnetic field. This changing magnetic field then induces a voltage in the secondary winding, which acts as a conductor for this induced voltage. The secondary winding is connected to the load and transfers the electrical energy from the primary winding to the load. Therefore, the secondary winding is the correct answer as it provides the path for the voltage to be induced into.

    If the size of the plates of a capacitor is increased, how is capacitance affected?

    • A.

      Capacitance increases

    • B.

      Capacitance decreases

    • C.

      Capacitance remains the same

    • D.

      Capacitance increases only if the plate size doubles

    Correct Answer
    A. Capacitance increases
    Explanation
    When the size of the plates of a capacitor is increased, the distance between the plates decreases, resulting in an increase in capacitance. This is because capacitance is directly proportional to the area of the plates and inversely proportional to the distance between them. Therefore, increasing the plate size effectively increases the area, leading to an increase in capacitance.

    This statement best describes a capacitive circuit

    • A.

      Current leads applied voltage by 90 degrees.

    • B.

      Applied voltage leads current by 90 degrees

    • C.

      Has the ability to conduct in one direction and not the other.

    • D.

      Has the ability to conduct in all directions when gated or discharged.

    Correct Answer
    A. Current leads applied voltage by 90 degrees.
    Explanation
    A capacitive circuit is characterized by the fact that the current leads the applied voltage by 90 degrees. This means that the current reaches its maximum value before the voltage does. This behavior is due to the fact that capacitors store energy in an electric field and release it as current when the voltage changes. As the voltage increases, the capacitor charges up and the current starts to flow, leading to the 90-degree phase shift between the two.

    A bridge rectifier is installed in an alternating current (AC) circuit to

    • A.

      Decrease direct current (DC) pulses

    • B.

      Provide fullwave rectification

    • C.

      Provide halfwave rectification

    • D.

      Decrease ripple frequency

    Correct Answer
    B. Provide fullwave rectification
    Explanation
    A bridge rectifier is a circuit that converts alternating current (AC) into direct current (DC) by using a configuration of diodes. It allows the current to flow in only one direction, effectively eliminating the negative half of the AC waveform. This results in fullwave rectification, where both the positive and negative halves of the AC waveform are converted into a pulsating DC waveform. Therefore, the correct answer is that a bridge rectifier is installed in an AC circuit to provide fullwave rectification.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    In a circuit using a bridge rectifier, how many diodes are forward biased during the first cycle of alternating current (AC)?

    • A.

    • B.

      3

    • C.

      2

    • D.

      1

    Correct Answer
    C. 2
    Explanation
    In a bridge rectifier circuit, there are four diodes arranged in a bridge configuration. During the first cycle of alternating current (AC), two diodes are forward biased and allow the current to flow in one direction, while the other two diodes are reverse biased and block the current flow. This arrangement ensures that the alternating current is converted into direct current. Therefore, the correct answer is 2.

    This is how a zener diode is connected in a solid state circuit to regulate voltage.

    • A.

      In parallel to the load

    • B.

      In series with the load

    • C.

      In parallel to the resistor

    • D.

      In series with the resistor

    Correct Answer
    A. In parallel to the load
    Explanation
    A zener diode is connected in parallel to the load in a solid state circuit to regulate voltage. When connected in parallel, the zener diode allows current to flow through it when the voltage across the load exceeds its breakdown voltage. This causes the excess voltage to be dropped across the zener diode, effectively regulating the voltage across the load. Connecting the zener diode in parallel to the load ensures that it only conducts when necessary, preventing excessive voltage from damaging the load.

    • C.

      In parallel to the load

    • D.

      Forward biased

    Correct Answer
    C. In parallel to the load
    Explanation
    A zener diode is connected in parallel to the load in order to protect it. When the voltage across the load exceeds the breakdown voltage of the zener diode, it starts conducting and provides a low resistance path for the excess current. This prevents the load from being damaged by the excessive voltage. By connecting the zener diode in parallel to the load, it ensures that the voltage across the load remains within a safe range.

    Explanation
    An SCR, also known as a thyristor, is a four-layer semiconductor device that acts as a switch. It consists of three P-N junctions and four layers of alternating P and N-type materials. These layers allow the SCR to control the flow of current in one direction by using a gate signal to trigger conduction. Therefore, the correct answer is 4, as an SCR has four layers.

    In order to turn off a silicon-controlled rectifier (SCR), the current must drop below the

    • A.

      Trigger current

    • B.

      Holding current

    • C.

      Variable current

    • D.

      Breakdown current

    Correct Answer
    B. Holding current
    Explanation
    To turn off a silicon-controlled rectifier (SCR), the current must drop below the holding current. The holding current is the minimum current required to keep the SCR in the conducting state after it has been triggered. If the current falls below this threshold, the SCR will turn off and stop conducting. The holding current acts as a sort of "latch" to maintain the SCR's state until intentionally turned off.

    Correct Answer
    C. Control circuit
    Explanation
    The control circuit in a bipolar transistor regulates the flow of current. It is responsible for controlling the input to the base circuit, which in turn determines the output of the emitter-collector circuit. By adjusting the input to the base circuit, the control circuit can modulate the current flow in the transistor. Therefore, it makes sense that the circuit in question, which carries 5 percent of the current flow, is the control circuit.

    An A/M32A–86D generator set is sent to the shop on a Red X for “will not apply power to the aircraft.” During the operational check, you place S5 in the closed position and the contactor light illuminates. When you release the switch, the contactor opens. Which is a probable cause of this trouble?

    • A.

      S2 is open

    • B.

      R46 is open

    • C.

      K2 is closed

    • D.

      K17 is closed

    Correct Answer
