    What is the minimum tread depth for rain tires?

    • A.

      2.4mm (3/32 inch).

    • B.

      1.6mm (2/32 inch)

    • C.

      0.8mm (1/32 inch)

    • D.

      3.2mm (4/32 inch)

    Correct Answer
    A. 2.4mm (3/32 inch).
    Explanation
    The minimum tread depth for rain tires is 2.4mm (3/32 inch). This depth is necessary to ensure proper traction on wet surfaces and prevent hydroplaning. A shallower tread depth would not be able to channel water effectively, leading to reduced grip and increased risk of accidents in rainy conditions. A deeper tread depth may not be necessary and can cause excessive noise and wear on dry roads. Therefore, 2.4mm (3/32 inch) is the optimal minimum tread depth for rain tires.

    A steady DC current is flowing through a coil with an inductance of 248mH. The stored energy in the magnetic field is 431J. By how much does the current have to be increased, if the stored energy should be increased by 300J? 

    • A.

      76.78 A

    • B.

      76.77 A

    • C.

      76.79 A

    • D.

      17.820 A

    • E.

      9.767 A

    Correct Answer
    A. 76.78 A
    Explanation
    The stored energy in an inductor is given by the formula E = 0.5 * L * I^2, where E is the energy, L is the inductance, and I is the current. We are given that the initial stored energy is 431J and the inductance is 248mH. Plugging these values into the formula, we can solve for the initial current. Then, we can use the same formula with the new desired stored energy of 731J to solve for the increased current. The difference between the two currents will give us the amount by which the current needs to be increased, which is approximately 76.78 A.

    A. If I elect to change to wet tires, I may do so during the driver change
    Explanation
    The correct answer states that if the driver elects to change to wet tires, they may do so during the driver change. This means that the driver can choose to switch to wet tires while they are being replaced by another driver. This implies that the driver change is a convenient time for the tire change, allowing for a seamless transition without wasting additional time.

    Which one is not a standard cost table ?

    • A.

      Machining Table

    • B.

      Processes Table

    • C.

      Tooling Table

    • D.

      Materials Table

    Correct Answer
    A. Machining Table
    Explanation
    The machining table is not a standard cost table because it does not provide information on the costs associated with the machining process. A standard cost table typically includes details on the costs of processes, tooling, and materials involved in the production or manufacturing process. However, the machining table specifically focuses on the operations and equipment used for machining, such as cutting, drilling, or shaping materials, rather than providing cost information.

    Which force in rearward direction must the driver's head restraint, its attachment and mounting withstand? 

    • A.

      At least 890 Newton.

    • B.

      At least 750 Newton.

    • C.

      At least 510 Newton.

    • D.

      At least 1280 Newton.

    Correct Answer
    A. At least 890 Newton.
    Explanation
    The driver's head restraint, its attachment, and mounting must withstand a force of at least 890 Newton in the rearward direction. This force is necessary to provide adequate protection to the driver's head and neck in the event of a rear-end collision or sudden deceleration. A lower force, such as 750 Newton or 510 Newton, would not provide sufficient protection, while a force of 1280 Newton would be excessive and potentially uncomfortable for the driver.

    In steady-state cornering of an understeering car, the lateral acceleration causes the front wheels to slip sideways to a greater extent than the rear wheels. To develop the lateral force at the front wheels to maintain the radius of the turn the driver has to...

    • A.

      Increase the steering angle

    • B.

      shift the CoG forward

    • C.

      Increase the acceleration

    • D.

      Adjust the brake balance rearward

    Correct Answer
    A. Increase the steering angle
    Explanation
    In steady-state cornering of an understeering car, the front wheels slip sideways more than the rear wheels due to the lateral acceleration. To maintain the radius of the turn, the driver needs to increase the steering angle. By increasing the steering angle, the front wheels can generate more lateral force, allowing the car to maintain the desired turn radius. This helps to compensate for the understeer and keep the car on track during the cornering maneuver.

    Which charging strategy should be used for a Li-Ion accumulator ?

    • A.

      Pulse Charge

    • B.

      Delta-T

    • C.

      Constant Voltage

    • D.

      CC-CV

    • E.

      Delta-Peak

    Correct Answer
    D. CC-CV
    Explanation
    CC-CV charging strategy should be used for a Li-Ion accumulator. This strategy involves two stages of charging - Constant Current (CC) and Constant Voltage (CV). In the CC stage, the battery is charged with a constant current until it reaches a certain voltage limit. Once the voltage limit is reached, the charger switches to the CV stage where the voltage is kept constant while the current gradually decreases. This strategy ensures that the battery is charged efficiently and safely, preventing overcharging and damage to the battery.
