### Which of the following terms is defined as the amount of load a machine can turn?

• A.

• B.

• C.

Torque

• D.

Tension

C. Torque
Explanation
Torque is defined as the amount of load a machine can turn. It is the rotational force that causes an object to rotate around an axis. Torque is dependent on the force applied and the distance from the axis of rotation. It is commonly measured in units of Newton-meters (Nm) or foot-pounds (ft-lb) and is used to describe the turning ability or power of a machine.

Rate this question:

• 13.

### Which of the following units should be used in measuring the amount of turning force of a synchro?

• A.

Ounces

• B.

Pounds

• C.

Foot-pounds

Explanation
The amount of turning force of a synchro should be measured in ounce-inches. This unit combines both the force (ounce) and the distance (inches) from the axis of rotation, providing a comprehensive measurement of the torque or turning force. Ounces alone do not account for the distance, while pounds and foot-pounds are more commonly used for larger forces and longer distances. Therefore, ounce-inches is the most appropriate unit for measuring the amount of turning force in a synchro.

### If a TDX system with standard synchro connections has the TX rotor at the 60- degree position and the TDX rotor at the 270-degree position, what is the position of the TR rotor?

• A.

110 degrees

• B.

150 degrees

• C.

• D.

250 degrees

B. 150 degrees
Explanation
Based on the information given, we know that the TX rotor is at the 60-degree position and the TDX rotor is at the 270-degree position. To find the position of the TR rotor, we need to determine the relative position between the TX and TDX rotors. Since the TDX rotor is ahead of the TX rotor by 210 degrees (270 - 60), the TR rotor will be ahead of the TDX rotor by the same amount. Therefore, the position of the TR rotor is 150 degrees (270 + 210).

• D.

Delta, across the stator windings

D. Delta, across the stator windings
Explanation
In a synchro circuit, the synchro capacitors are connected in a Delta configuration across the stator windings. This means that the capacitors are connected in a triangular shape, with each capacitor connected between two stator windings. This configuration allows for the efficient transfer of power and synchronization between the stator windings, ensuring accurate and reliable operation of the synchro circuit.
