    The circuit element that opposes any change in current is

    • A.

      Inductor

    • B.

      Conductor

    • C.

      Reductor

    • D.

      Mho

    Correct Answer
    A. Inductor

    An inductor is a circuit element that opposes any change in current. When the current through an inductor changes, it creates a back electromotive force (EMF) that opposes the change in current. This property of inductors is due to the phenomenon of electromagnetic induction. In contrast, a conductor allows the flow of current without opposing it, while a reductor and mho are not relevant terms in the context of opposing current flow. Therefore, the correct answer is inductor.

    Explanation
    Connecting a resistor in series with a meter will increase the measuring range of a voltmeter. This is because adding a resistor in series increases the overall resistance in the circuit, which in turn decreases the current flowing through the meter. As the current decreases, the voltage drop across the meter also decreases, allowing the meter to measure higher voltages without being overloaded. Therefore, the measuring range of the voltmeter is increased.

      Damaging the measuring range of ammeter

    • D.

      Overloading the measuring range of ammeter

    Correct Answer
    A. Increase the measuring range of ammeter
    Explanation
    Connecting a resistor in parallel with a meter will increase the measuring range of an ammeter. When a resistor is connected in parallel with the meter, it creates an additional path for current to flow. This decreases the overall resistance in the circuit, allowing more current to pass through the ammeter. As a result, the ammeter can measure higher currents that were previously outside its original measuring range.

    • D.

      To Serve and Protect

    Correct Answer
    C. Protect the station and building from damage due to nearby lightning strike
    Explanation
    When the station and equipment are grounded, it helps to protect them from damage caused by nearby lightning strikes. By providing a path for the electrical current to follow, the grounding system can redirect the energy from the lightning strike safely into the ground, preventing it from damaging the station and building. Without proper grounding, the lightning strike could potentially cause severe damage to the station, appliances, and the building itself. Therefore, grounding is essential to safeguard the station and building from the destructive effects of lightning strikes.

    What should you do to prevent shock when working on high voltage power supply?

    • A.

      Short the filter capacitors

    • B.

      Charge the filter capacitors

    • C.

      Discharge the filter capacitors

    • D.

      Trim the filter capacitors

    Correct Answer
    C. Discharge the filter capacitors
    Explanation
    To prevent shock when working on a high voltage power supply, it is important to discharge the filter capacitors. This is necessary because capacitors store electrical energy, and if they are not discharged before working on the power supply, they can still hold a charge and pose a risk of electric shock. By discharging the filter capacitors, any stored electrical energy is safely dissipated, reducing the risk of shock when working on the power supply.

    Ohm's Law is stated in the following formula

    • A.

      P= IV

    • B.

      I= VR

    • C.

      V = IR

    • D.

      R= IV

    Correct Answer
    C. V = IR
    Explanation
    Ohm's Law states that the voltage (V) across a conductor is directly proportional to the current (I) flowing through it, and inversely proportional to the resistance (R) of the conductor. The equation V = IR represents this relationship, where V is the voltage, I is the current, and R is the resistance. This equation is derived from the other equations given, where P = IV represents the power, I = VR represents the current, and R = IV represents the resistance. Therefore, the correct answer is V = IR.

    The power formula is

    • A.

      P = I2R

    • B.

      P = I2V

    • C.

      P = V2R

    • D.

      P = H2R

    Correct Answer
    A. P = I2R
    Explanation
    The given power formula is P = I^2R, which means that power (P) is equal to the square of the current (I) multiplied by the resistance (R). This formula is derived from Ohm's law, which states that the current flowing through a conductor is directly proportional to the voltage across it and inversely proportional to the resistance. By squaring the current and multiplying it by the resistance, we can calculate the power dissipated in a circuit.

    To produce higher output voltage, dry cells should be connected in

    • A.

      Direct

    • B.

      Parallel

    • C.

      Series

    • D.

      Jumper

    Correct Answer
    C. Series
    Explanation
    To produce higher output voltage, dry cells should be connected in series. When dry cells are connected in series, the positive terminal of one cell is connected to the negative terminal of the next cell, creating a cumulative effect. This increases the total voltage output of the cells. In contrast, connecting cells in parallel would increase the total current output but not the voltage.

    The larger the diameter of a copper wire

    • A.

      The higher is the resistance of the wire

    • B.

      The lower is the resistance of the wire

    • C.

      The same is the resistance of the wire

    • D.

      The balance is the resistance of the wire

    Correct Answer
    B. The lower is the resistance of the wire
    Explanation
    The larger the diameter of a copper wire, the lower is the resistance of the wire. This is because a larger diameter means there is more cross-sectional area for the current to flow through, resulting in less obstruction to the flow of electrons. As a result, there is less resistance to the flow of electric current in a wire with a larger diameter.

    • D.

      There is NO resistance of the wire

    Correct Answer
    C. The higher is the resistance of the wire
    Explanation
    The longer the copper wire, the higher is the resistance of the wire. This is because resistance is directly proportional to the length of the wire. As the length increases, the number of collisions between the moving electrons and the atoms in the wire also increases, resulting in a higher resistance.

    • B.

      The higher is the resistance of the wire

    • C.

      The stronger is the signal received

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. The higher is the resistance of the wire
    Explanation
    The statement "the higher is the resistance of the wire" is the correct answer because the resistance of a wire is directly proportional to its length. This means that as the length of the copper wire increases, the resistance also increases. This relationship is described by Ohm's Law, which states that resistance is equal to the product of the resistivity of the material and the length of the wire, divided by its cross-sectional area. Therefore, the longer the copper wire, the higher its resistance.
