### Magnetic strength is measured in flux density.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Magnetic strength is indeed measured in flux density. Flux density, also known as magnetic field strength, is a measure of the strength of a magnetic field. It represents the amount of magnetic flux per unit area perpendicular to the magnetic field. The unit of measurement for flux density is tesla (T) or gauss (G). Therefore, the statement "Magnetic strength is measured in flux density" is correct.

### Reluctance

• A.

Is resistance to magnetism.

• B.

Is a variable resistor used as a voltage divider.

• C.

Is a measure of a materials ability to become magnetized.

A. Is resistance to magnetism.
Explanation
Reluctance is the measure of a material's ability to become magnetized. It is the opposition to the flow of magnetic flux, similar to how resistance opposes the flow of electric current. When a material has high reluctance, it is difficult for it to become magnetized, while low reluctance allows for easy magnetization. Therefore, the correct answer is "is a measure of a material's ability to become magnetized."

### Occurs when all the molecules of the magnetic materials are lined up

• A.

Ampere-Turns

• B.

Reluctance

• C.

Saturation

C. Saturation
Explanation
Saturation refers to the state when all the molecules of magnetic materials are aligned. In this state, the material cannot be magnetized any further, as it has reached its maximum magnetic strength. Saturation is an important concept in magnetism and is often used to describe the maximum magnetic flux density that a material can achieve.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### Ampere-Turns are determined by multiplying the number of turns of wire by the current flow.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The statement is true because Ampere-Turns, also known as magnetomotive force (MMF), is determined by multiplying the number of turns of wire in a coil by the current flowing through it. This relationship is based on Ampere's law, which states that the magnetic field produced by a current-carrying conductor is directly proportional to the current flowing through it and the number of turns in the coil. Therefore, increasing either the number of turns or the current flow will result in a higher Ampere-Turns value.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### The amount of magnetism left in a material after the magnetizing force has stopped.

• A.

Residual Magnetism

• B.

Potentiometer

• C.

Saturation

A. Residual Magnetism
Explanation
Residual magnetism refers to the amount of magnetism that remains in a material even after the magnetizing force has been removed. It is a measure of the material's ability to retain its magnetic properties. This phenomenon is commonly observed in ferromagnetic materials such as iron or steel, where the alignment of magnetic domains persists even after the external magnetic field is removed. Residual magnetism is important in various applications, such as in the operation of magnetic storage devices or in the production of permanent magnets.

### Resistors:

• A.

Limit the flow of current in a circuit and are voltage dividers

• B.

Are voltage dividers and have high power ratings

• C.

Have higher power ratings and limit current flow

• D.

All the above

A. Limit the flow of current in a circuit and are voltage dividers
Explanation
Resistors limit the flow of current in a circuit by providing resistance to the flow of electrons. This resistance is measured in ohms and determines the amount of current that can pass through the circuit. Additionally, resistors are voltage dividers, meaning they divide the voltage across a circuit by providing a specific resistance. This allows for the control and regulation of voltage levels within a circuit. Therefore, the correct answer is that resistors limit the flow of current in a circuit and are voltage dividers.

### Have higher power ratings, should be mounted vertically.

• A.

Metal film resistors

• B.

Carbon film resistors

• C.

Wire-wound Resistors

C. Wire-wound Resistors
Explanation
Wire-wound resistors have higher power ratings compared to metal film and carbon film resistors. This means that they can handle more power without getting damaged or overheated. To ensure proper cooling and prevent overheating, wire-wound resistors should be mounted vertically. This allows for better air circulation and heat dissipation, ensuring that the resistor operates within its specified power rating and does not get damaged due to excessive heat.

### A potentiometer is a variable resistor used as a voltage divider.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
A potentiometer is a type of resistor that has three terminals and is used to vary the voltage in a circuit. It works by adjusting the resistance along its track, allowing it to act as a voltage divider. By changing the position of the wiper, the output voltage can be adjusted to a desired level. Therefore, the statement that a potentiometer is a variable resistor used as a voltage divider is true.

### Energy is required to create a magnetic field, but no energy is required to maintain a magnetic field.

• A.

Permanent Magnetics

• B.

Residual Magnetism

A. Permanent Magnetics
Explanation
Permanent magnets do not require any external energy source to maintain their magnetic field. This is because they are made of materials that have their atomic magnetic moments aligned in a specific direction, creating a permanent magnetic field. Once these materials are magnetized, they will retain their magnetic properties indefinitely unless acted upon by an external force. Therefore, no energy is needed to maintain the magnetic field of permanent magnets.
