    Nickel-Chromium alloy is used in heating coils and electric furnaces because:

    • A.

      It resists corrosion even it is hot 

    • B.

      It has high resistance to electric current

    • C.

      It produces high amount of heat

    • D.

      It consume a small amount of energy to produce heat

    Correct Answer
    A. It resists corrosion even it is hot 
    Explanation
    Nickel-Chromium alloy is used in heating coils and electric furnaces because it resists corrosion even when it is exposed to high temperatures. This is important in these applications as the coils and furnaces are subjected to extreme heat, which can cause other materials to corrode and degrade. By using a Nickel-Chromium alloy, the coils and furnaces can maintain their integrity and performance over time, making them more durable and reliable.

    • D.

      Option 4

    • E.

      K2Cr2O7 / KMnO4 / ZnO

    Correct Answer
    B. Cr2O3   / V2O5  / ZnO
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Cr2O3 / V2O5 / ZnO. This is because Cr2O3 (chromium(III) oxide) and V2O5 (vanadium(V) oxide) are commonly used as pigments in paints, providing various colors such as green and yellow. ZnO (zinc oxide) is also used as a white pigment in paints. Therefore, these compounds are commonly used in the painting process.
