### Device used to gauge for voltage/emf ____

• A.

Voltmeter

• B.

Growler tester

• C.

Clamp meter

• D.

Kilowatt hour meter

A. Voltmeter
Explanation
A voltmeter is a device used to measure voltage or electromotive force (emf). It is specifically designed to gauge the potential difference between two points in an electric circuit. By connecting the voltmeter across the points of interest, it can accurately display the voltage value. In contrast, a growler tester is used to detect faults in electrical machines, a clamp meter measures current, and a kilowatt hour meter measures electrical energy consumption. Therefore, the most appropriate device for gauging voltage/emf is a voltmeter.

### What device is used in testing armature of short circuit coils?

• A.

Ammeter

• B.

Growler tester

• C.

Voltmeter

• D.

Chmmeter

B. Growler tester
Explanation
A growler tester is used in testing the armature of short circuit coils. A growler tester is a device that generates a magnetic field and is used to check for short circuits or open circuits in the armature windings of electrical machines. It works by inducing a magnetic field in the armature and detecting any changes in the magnetic field, which can indicate faults in the coil windings. Therefore, a growler tester is the correct device for testing the armature of short circuit coils.

### What tool is used in bending pvc pipe?

heat gun
piping heater
Explanation
A heat gun or piping heater is used in bending PVC pipes. These tools provide heat to soften the PVC material, making it flexible and easier to bend into the desired shape. The heat gun or piping heater helps to prevent the PVC pipe from cracking or breaking during the bending process. By applying heat, the PVC pipe becomes pliable, allowing it to be bent without causing damage to the pipe.

### A device is used to change the value of volage.____

Transformer
Explanation
A transformer is a device that is used to change the value of voltage. It is an electrical device that consists of two or more coils of wire wrapped around a core. It works on the principle of electromagnetic induction, where an alternating current in one coil induces a voltage in the other coil. This allows the voltage to be increased or decreased depending on the turns ratio of the coils. Transformers are commonly used in power distribution systems to step up or step down voltages for efficient transmission and utilization of electrical energy.

• 11.

### Transformer is normally rated in ______

KVA (kilo-volt-ampere)
Explanation
The transformer is normally rated in KVA (kilo-volt-ampere) because it is a measure of the apparent power of the transformer. KVA takes into account both the voltage and current, indicating the total power capacity of the transformer. It is important to rate transformers in KVA as it helps in determining the appropriate size and capacity of the transformer for a given application, ensuring efficient and safe operation.

### 1 KVA is equal to _____

1000 volts
Explanation
1 KVA is equal to 1000 volts because KVA stands for kilovolt-ampere, which is a unit of apparent power in an electrical circuit. It represents the total power in a circuit, including both the real power (measured in watts) and the reactive power (measured in volt-amperes reactive). Since 1 KVA is equal to 1000 volt-amperes, it can be equated to 1000 volts.

### KVAR means ______

Kilo volt ampere rating
Explanation
KVAR is an acronym that stands for "kilo volt ampere rating." This term is used to measure the reactive power in an electrical system. Reactive power is the power that is required to maintain the electric and magnetic fields in an alternating current circuit. KVAR rating is important in power factor correction and determining the efficiency of electrical equipment. It helps in optimizing the power flow and reducing energy losses in electrical systems.

### A device used to remove sharp burns or rough edges is ____

tappered reamer
Explanation
A tapered reamer is a tool that is used to remove sharp burns or rough edges. It has a tapered shape, meaning that it gradually widens towards one end. This allows it to fit into holes or openings of different sizes. By rotating the tapered reamer inside the hole, it smooths out the edges and removes any rough or sharp areas. This tool is commonly used in metalworking or woodworking to ensure a clean and smooth finish.

### What device that protects the motor from overload?

Explanation
The correct answer is overload relays. Overload relays are devices that protect the motor from overload by monitoring the current flowing through the motor. If the current exceeds a certain threshold, the overload relay will trip and disconnect the motor from the power source, preventing damage to the motor. Overload protection, on the other hand, is a broader term that encompasses various methods and devices used to protect motors from overload, including overload relays.

### What is the used of tappered reamer?

to remove sharp burns or rough edges
Explanation
A tapered reamer is a tool used to gradually enlarge and shape holes in materials such as metal or wood. It is designed with a tapered end that allows for precision and control while removing sharp burrs or rough edges from the inside of a hole. By rotating the reamer in a clockwise motion, it smooths out the surface and creates a more even and polished finish, ensuring that the hole is clean and free from any imperfections.
