    • A.

      Electrons and protons

    • B.

      Electrons and neutrons

    • C.

      Protons and neutrons

    • D.

      Electrons, protons, and neutrons

    Correct Answer
    A. Electrons and protons
    Explanation
    Every atom must contain electrons and protons. Electrons are negatively charged particles that orbit around the nucleus of an atom, while protons are positively charged particles located in the nucleus. These two particles are essential for the stability and structure of an atom. Neutrons, on the other hand, are neutral particles and are not required in every atom, although they can be present in some atoms to provide stability.

    An atom with eight electrons in its outermost shell is said to be

    • A.

      Free

    • B.

      Stable

    • C.

      Valence

    • D.

      Ionized

    Correct Answer
    B. Stable
    Explanation
    An atom with eight electrons in its outermost shell is said to be stable. This is because the outermost shell, also known as the valence shell, is considered complete when it contains eight electrons. This configuration is known as the octet rule and is commonly observed in noble gases, which have full outer shells and are therefore very stable. In contrast, atoms with fewer or more than eight electrons in their outermost shell tend to be reactive and less stable, as they seek to gain, lose, or share electrons to achieve a stable configuration.

    What is the wattage of a circuit with 28 volts applied and a total resistance of .2 ohms?

    • A.

      .14 watts (w)

    • B.

      .14 kilowatts (kw)

    • C.

      3.92 w.

    • D.

      3.92 kw.

    Correct Answer
    D. 3.92 kw.
    Explanation
    The wattage of a circuit can be calculated using the formula P = V^2 / R, where P is the power in watts, V is the voltage in volts, and R is the resistance in ohms. In this case, the voltage is 28 volts and the resistance is 0.2 ohms. Plugging these values into the formula, we get P = 28^2 / 0.2 = 784 / 0.2 = 3920 watts. Since the question asks for the wattage in kilowatts, we divide the result by 1000 to get 3.92 kilowatts.

    Source current in a parallel circuit will be divided according to branch

    • A.

      Voltage

    • B.

      Powers

    • C.

      Lengths

    • D.

      Resistances

    Correct Answer
    D. Resistances
    Explanation
    In a parallel circuit, the current flowing through each branch is determined by the resistance of that branch. This is because the total current entering the parallel circuit is divided among the different branches based on their resistance values. The branch with a lower resistance will allow more current to flow through it, while the branch with a higher resistance will allow less current to flow through it. Therefore, the statement that the source current in a parallel circuit will be divided according to resistances is correct.

    The magnetic field of an electromagnet can be varied by changing the type of core, the number of turns in the coil, and the amount of current through the coil. The type of core affects the strength of the magnetic field, with different materials having different magnetic properties. Increasing the number of turns in the coil increases the magnetic field strength, as each turn contributes to the overall field. Finally, increasing the amount of current flowing through the coil increases the strength of the magnetic field according to Ampere's law. Therefore, all of the above options can be used to vary the magnetic field of an electromagnet.

      Inductance

    • B.

      Self-induction

    • C.

      Mutual induction

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Mutual induction
    Explanation
    Mutual induction is the process by which a current change in one coil induces a voltage in another coil. This occurs when the magnetic field produced by the changing current in one coil cuts through the turns of the second coil, causing a voltage to be induced. This phenomenon is commonly used in transformers, where mutual induction is utilized to transfer electrical energy from one coil to another. Inductance refers to the property of a coil to oppose changes in current, while self-induction is the induction of a voltage in the same coil due to changes in current.

    Explanation
    Capacitive reactance is the opposition that a capacitor exhibits to the flow of alternating current (AC). It is caused by the storage and release of electrical energy in the capacitor. When AC is applied to a capacitor, the capacitor charges and discharges, resulting in a phase shift between the voltage and current. This opposition is known as capacitive reactance, and it is measured in ohms. It is the opposite of inductive reactance, which is the opposition exhibited by an inductor to AC. Impedance, on the other hand, is the overall opposition to the flow of AC in a circuit and includes both resistance and reactance. Capacitance refers to the ability of a capacitor to store electrical energy.

    Explanation
    The amount of resistance is a factor that determines the time required to charge a capacitor. Resistance limits the flow of current in the circuit, which affects the rate at which the capacitor charges. A higher resistance will slow down the charging process, while a lower resistance will allow the capacitor to charge more quickly. Therefore, the amount of resistance in the circuit plays a crucial role in determining the charging time of a capacitor.

    The anode of a diode is typically made of a positive material. In a diode, current can only flow in one direction, from the anode to the cathode. The anode is positively charged, while the cathode is negatively charged. When a forward bias voltage is applied, the positive material in the anode attracts the negatively charged electrons, allowing current to flow through the diode. Therefore, the anode is made of positive material to facilitate the flow of current in the desired direction.

    Correct Answer
    D. Biasing
    Explanation
    Biasing refers to the process of applying a DC voltage to a diode or transistor in order to establish a desired operating point. By applying a bias voltage, the depletion region of a diode can be expanded or contracted, allowing or preventing the flow of current through the diode. This is essential for controlling the behavior of the diode and ensuring it operates within its desired range. Therefore, biasing is the correct term for expanding or contracting the depletion region of a diode.

    • B.

      Parallel

    • C.

      Reverse bias

    • D.

      Series-parallel

    Correct Answer
    A. Series
    Explanation
    When a zener diode is used as a regulator, it is necessary to have a resistor placed in series with it in the circuit. This resistor helps to limit the current flowing through the zener diode and ensures that it operates within its specified voltage range. By placing the resistor in series, it allows the zener diode to regulate the voltage across the load by maintaining a constant voltage drop across itself. This configuration is commonly used in voltage regulator circuits to provide a stable output voltage.

    Correct Answer
    A. Forward breakover voltage
    Explanation
    The forward breakover voltage refers to the minimum voltage required to trigger the SCR into conduction when a positive gate current is applied. It is the threshold voltage that must be exceeded for the SCR to start conducting current. The holding current, on the other hand, is the minimum current required to maintain conduction once the SCR has been triggered. Peak voltage refers to the maximum voltage that the SCR can withstand without breakdown. Gate current is the current that is applied to the gate terminal of the SCR to control its conduction.

    • A.

      The forward breakover voltage must exceed the holding voltage

    • B.

      The current must drop below the holding current

    • C.

      The negative amp switch must activate

    • D.

      The negative volt switch must activate

    Correct Answer
    B. The current must drop below the holding current
    Explanation
    When the current flowing through an SCR drops below the holding current, the SCR will turn off. The holding current is the minimum current required to maintain conduction in the SCR once it has been triggered. Therefore, if the current drops below this threshold, the SCR will stop conducting and turn off. This is the condition that needs to be met for the SCR to be turned off.
