### How does a brushless motor differ from a brushed motor?

• A.

The magnets and coils switch places

• B.

The brushless motorâ€™s brushes have been plucked off

• C.

The magnets are taken out of the brushless motor

• D.

Brushed motors run more efficiently

A. The magnets and coils switch places
Explanation
In a brushed motor, the magnets are fixed and the coils rotate, while in a brushless motor, the magnets rotate and the coils are fixed. This reversal of the positions of the magnets and coils is what makes a brushless motor different from a brushed motor.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### What does a brushless motor reduce?

• A.

Drag

• B.

Power consumption

• C.

User fatigue

• D.

All of the above

D. All of the above
Explanation
A brushless motor reduces drag, power consumption, and user fatigue. Drag is reduced because there are no brushes rubbing against the commutator, resulting in smoother operation. Power consumption is reduced because brushless motors are more efficient and have less energy loss. User fatigue is reduced because brushless motors are lighter and produce less vibration, making them easier to handle. Therefore, all of the above options are correct.

### How is electric current measured?

• A.

Ohms

• B.

Volts

• C.

Amps

• D.

Watts

C. Amps
Explanation
Electric current is measured in amps. Amps, short for amperes, is the unit used to quantify the rate of flow of electric charge in a circuit. It represents the amount of charge passing through a given point in a circuit per unit of time. Therefore, amps is the correct answer for measuring electric current.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### By lowering resistance, you increase _________.

• A.

Ohms

• B.

Volts

• C.

Amps

• D.

Watts

C. Amps
Explanation
By lowering resistance, you increase the flow of electric current, which is measured in amps. This is because according to Ohm's Law, current is directly proportional to voltage and inversely proportional to resistance. Therefore, when resistance decreases, the current increases.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### Foot-Pounds divided by RPMs = _____________.

• A.

Torque

• B.

Velocity

• C.

Horsepower

• D.

Amp-hour

C. Horsepower
Explanation
The correct answer is horsepower. Horsepower is a unit of power that measures the rate at which work is done. In this equation, when Foot-Pounds (a unit of work or torque) is divided by RPMs (revolutions per minute, a measure of rotational speed), the result is horsepower. This equation is commonly used in the field of mechanics to calculate the power output of engines or motors.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### A hammer drill uses a ___________ to make the hammering motion while drilling.

• A.

Chuck

• B.

Clutch

• C.

Piston

• D.

Computer chip

B. Clutch
Explanation
A hammer drill uses a clutch to make the hammering motion while drilling. The clutch is a mechanical device that allows the hammer drill to switch between regular drilling and hammering action. When the clutch is engaged, it allows the drill to deliver a rapid hammering motion, which helps in breaking through hard materials like concrete or stone. This feature makes the hammer drill more effective and efficient in drilling tasks that require extra force.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### Drilling into ___________ is a practical use for a rotary hammer.

• A.

Concrete

• B.

Light wood

• C.

Plastic piping

• D.

Steel

A. Concrete
Explanation
A rotary hammer is a powerful tool designed specifically for drilling into hard materials such as concrete. It uses a combination of rotation and hammering action to break through tough surfaces. While it may be possible to use a rotary hammer on other materials like light wood, plastic piping, or steel, it is most commonly used for drilling into concrete due to its strength and capabilities.

Rate this question:

• 11.

### Which saw needs oil levels to be maintained?

• A.

A sidewinder circular saw

• B.

A reciprocating saw

• C.

A jig saw

• D.

A worm drive circular saw

D. A worm drive circular saw
Explanation
A worm drive circular saw needs oil levels to be maintained. This is because a worm drive saw has gears that require lubrication to prevent excessive wear and ensure smooth operation. Regularly checking and maintaining the oil levels in a worm drive circular saw is important to keep it functioning properly and extend its lifespan.

Rate this question:

• 12.

### Which region prefers the worm drive the most?

• A.

East Coast

• B.

Midwest

• C.

West Coast

• D.

South East

C. West Coast
Explanation
The given answer suggests that the region that prefers the worm drive the most is the West Coast. This implies that compared to the other regions mentioned (East Coast, Midwest, and South East), the West Coast has a higher preference for using the worm drive.

Rate this question:

• 13.

### Worm drives are typically sold as cordless units.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement is false because worm drives are not typically sold as cordless units. Worm drives are a type of power tool that are usually sold as corded units, meaning they require a power cord to operate. Cordless units, on the other hand, are powered by batteries and do not require a power cord.

Rate this question:

• 14.

### Batteries supply direct current.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Batteries supply direct current because they convert chemical energy into electrical energy. Unlike alternating current (AC), which periodically changes direction, direct current (DC) flows continuously in one direction. This makes batteries suitable for powering devices that require a steady and constant flow of electricity, such as flashlights, remote controls, and portable electronics.

Rate this question:

• 15.

### A typical house outlet measures out to ____________.

• A.

60 watts

• B.

120 volts

• C.

100 volts

• D.

80 watts

B. 120 volts
Explanation
A typical house outlet measures out to 120 volts. This is the standard voltage provided by electrical power companies for residential buildings. It is the amount of electrical potential difference that is needed to power most household appliances and devices.

Rate this question:

• 16.

### How is resistance measured?

• A.

Ohms

• B.

Volts

• C.

Amps

• D.

Watts

A. Ohms
Explanation
Resistance is measured in ohms. Ohms is the unit of measurement for electrical resistance. It represents the amount of opposition that a material or component offers to the flow of electric current.

• 17.

### What does the ’S’  in laser stand for?

• A.

Science

• B.

Super

• C.

Stimulated

• D.

Straight

C. Stimulated
Explanation
The 'S' in laser stands for "Stimulated". A laser is a device that emits a beam of coherent light through the process of stimulated emission. In this process, the atoms or molecules in the laser medium are stimulated by an external energy source to emit light photons in phase with each other, resulting in a highly focused and intense beam of light.

Rate this question:

• 18.

### The (speed of light) x (time)/2 = ___________.

• A.

Distance

• B.

Energy

• C.

Mass

• D.

Horsepower

A. Distance
Explanation
The formula provided, (speed of light) x (time)/2, is a common equation used to calculate distance. By multiplying the speed of light by the given time and dividing it by 2, we can determine the distance traveled. Therefore, the correct answer is distance.

Rate this question:

• 19.

### An impact driver is best for __________.

• A.

Drilling holes

• B.

Driving fasteners

• C.

Driving holes

• D.

Drilling fasteners

B. Driving fasteners
Explanation
An impact driver is best for driving fasteners because it delivers high torque and rotational force, making it easier to drive screws and bolts into various materials. Unlike a drill, an impact driver applies more force in quick bursts, allowing for faster and more efficient fastening. This tool is especially useful when working with dense or resistant materials, such as hardwood or metal, where a regular drill may struggle to provide enough power.

Rate this question:

• 20.

### Drill drivers typically have variable speeds.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Drill drivers typically have variable speeds, meaning that the user can adjust the speed of the drill according to their needs. This feature allows for greater control and precision when drilling holes or driving screws. By being able to change the speed, users can match the speed to the material being drilled or the type of screw being driven, resulting in more efficient and effective drilling.
