### What is Ohms?

• A.

Work

• B.

Resistance

• C.

Current

• D.

Potential pressure

B. Resistance
Explanation
Ohms is a unit of measurement used to quantify electrical resistance. Resistance refers to the opposition that an electrical circuit or component offers to the flow of electric current. It is measured in ohms and determines how much current will flow through a circuit for a given voltage. Therefore, the correct answer is resistance.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### What is wattage?

• A.

Work

• B.

Current

• C.

Potential pressure

• D.

Resistance

A. Work
Explanation
Wattage refers to the rate at which work is done or energy is consumed or produced. It is a measure of the power used by an electrical device or system. The unit of wattage is watts, which is equal to one joule of energy per second. Therefore, the correct answer is "work" because wattage is directly related to the amount of work being done or the energy being transferred or transformed.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### What is amps?

• A.

Potential pressure

• B.

Work

• C.

Current

• D.

Resistance

C. Current
Explanation
Amps, short for amperes, is a unit used to measure electric current. Current refers to the flow of electric charge in a circuit. It is the rate at which electric charges pass through a given point in a conductor. The higher the current, the greater the amount of charge flowing per unit of time. Therefore, the correct answer is "current" as it accurately defines what amps represent in the context of electricity.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### What is voltage?

• A.

Potential pressure

• B.

Work

• C.

Resistance

• D.

Current

A. Potential pressure
Explanation
Voltage is a measure of the potential pressure or difference in electric potential energy between two points in an electric circuit. It represents the force that pushes electric charges through a conductor, causing electric current to flow. Voltage is often referred to as potential pressure because it is similar to the pressure in a fluid system that causes the fluid to flow.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### What is an alternating current?

• A.

One that moves back and forth

• B.

A change in current

• C.

Moves from positive to negative

• D.

Moves negative to positive

B. A change in current
Explanation
Alternating current refers to a type of electrical current that constantly changes direction. It moves back and forth, oscillating between positive and negative directions. This change in current is what distinguishes alternating current from direct current, which flows only in one direction.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### What is a direct current?

• A.

One that moves negative to positive

• B.

One that moves positive to negative

• C.

One that hits the direct source of power

• D.

One that goes back and forth

A. One that moves negative to positive
Explanation
Direct current (DC) is a type of electric current that flows in only one direction. In a direct current, the flow of electrons is from the negative terminal to the positive terminal. This is in contrast to alternating current (AC), where the flow of electrons constantly changes direction. Therefore, the correct answer is "One that moves negative to positive" as it accurately describes the direction of the current flow in a direct current.

### Find amperage:5-150watts

7.5
Explanation
The given information states "find amperage: 5-150 watts" and the answer provided is "7.5". Since the question is incomplete and does not provide any context or further details, it is difficult to determine the exact meaning or intention behind it. However, one possible interpretation could be that the question is asking for the amperage corresponding to a power range of 5-150 watts, and the answer "7.5" represents the amperage value for that power range.

Rate this question:

• 14.

### Find amperage:7-120watts

8.4
Explanation
The given information states "find amperage: 7-120 watts" and then provides the value "8.4". This suggests that the amperage being referred to is 8.4 amps. The range of 7-120 watts is likely the power rating of the device or circuit for which the amperage is being calculated.

### What is a focal point?

the point at which light rays meet again after passing through a lense or reflecting.
Explanation
The focal point refers to the point where light rays converge after passing through a lens or reflecting off a surface. This convergence of light rays is a result of the lens or reflecting surface's ability to bend or focus the light. At the focal point, the light rays come together, creating a focused image or a point of maximum intensity. The focal point is an essential concept in optics and is utilized in various optical systems such as cameras, telescopes, and microscopes.

### What type of lenses are there?

• A.

Concave

• B.

Parabolic

• C.

Convex

• D.

Reflector

A. Concave
C. Convex
Explanation
The correct answer is concave and convex. Concave lenses are thinner in the middle and thicker at the edges, causing light rays to diverge. They are used to correct nearsightedness and are commonly found in glasses. Convex lenses, on the other hand, are thicker in the middle and thinner at the edges, causing light rays to converge. They are used to correct farsightedness and are also found in glasses. Both types of lenses have different properties and applications in optics.

### Name at least 4 parts of an ellipsoidal reflector spot.

focus knob, shutter, lense,lens train in soft focus pos, focal point, lamp, lamp base, gel frame holder, instrument housing, ellipsoidal reflector, filament of lamp, pin connector,
Explanation
The ellipsoidal reflector spot consists of several parts including a focus knob, shutter, lens, lens train in soft focus position, focal point, lamp, lamp base, gel frame holder, instrument housing, ellipsoidal reflector, filament of lamp, and pin connector. These components work together to control the focus, intensity, and direction of the light emitted by the spot. The focus knob allows for adjusting the sharpness of the beam, while the shutter controls the shape and size of the beam. The lens and lens train help in achieving the desired soft focus effect. The lamp, lamp base, and filament provide the light source, while the gel frame holder allows for adding color filters. The instrument housing houses all the components, and the ellipsoidal reflector helps in shaping and directing the light beam. The pin connector ensures proper electrical connection.
