    A capacitor start, capacitor run single phase induction motor is a type of motor that uses two capacitors to start and run the motor. It is called a "single phase" motor because it operates on a single phase AC power supply. The motor has a special winding arrangement that creates a rotating magnetic field, which allows it to start and run smoothly. This type of motor is commonly used in applications where a high starting torque is required, such as in air conditioning units or refrigerators. It is not an AC series motor, DC series motor, or 3 phase induction motor.

      A,B&C

    Correct Answer
    B. Material
    Explanation
    The resistivity of a wire depends on the material it is made of. Different materials have different resistivities, which determine how easily or difficultly they allow the flow of electric current. Therefore, the material of the wire is a key factor in determining its resistivity. The length and cross-sectional area of the wire also affect its resistance, but they do not directly determine the resistivity of the wire.

    • A.

      DC power supply

    • B.

      DC regulated power supply

    • C.

      Steady power supply

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    B. DC regulated power supply
    Explanation
    A DC regulated power supply is a type of power supply that is designed to maintain a constant voltage output regardless of fluctuations in the AC mains or variations in the load. This ensures a steady and reliable power supply to the connected devices, making it suitable for applications where a stable voltage is required. Unlike a basic DC power supply, which may not have regulation circuitry, a regulated power supply incorporates control mechanisms to adjust the output voltage and keep it constant. Therefore, a DC regulated power supply is the correct answer in this case.

      a transformer

    Correct Answer
    D. a transformer
    Explanation
    A transformer is a piece of electrical equipment used for changing a voltage, either stepping it up or stepping it down. It consists of two or more coils of wire wrapped around a core and operates on the principle of electromagnetic induction. When an alternating current passes through the primary coil, it creates a magnetic field which induces a voltage in the secondary coil. This allows for the efficient transmission of electricity at different voltage levels, making it an essential component in power distribution systems.
