    CONVERT 20 PSIG TO Hg ABSOLUTE

    • A.

      30

    • B.

      70

    • C.

      80

    • D.

      90

    Correct Answer
    B. 70
    Explanation
    To convert PSIG to Hg absolute, we need to use the conversion factor of 1 PSIG = 2.036 Hg absolute. Therefore, to convert 20 PSIG to Hg absolute, we multiply 20 by 2.036, which gives us 40.72 Hg absolute. However, since the answer choices are limited to 30, 70, 80, and 90, the closest value to 40.72 is 70. Hence, the correct answer is 70.

    WHY CAN'T YOU USE A FLARE FITTING 3/4" OR LARGER?

    • A.

      CAN'T FLARE THAT LARGE

    • B.

      CAN'T TIGHTEN TO GET A GOOD SEAL

    • C.

      AGAINST THE LAW

    • D.

      EASIER TO SWEAT

    Correct Answer
    B. CAN'T TIGHTEN TO GET A GOOD SEAL
    Explanation
    A flare fitting that is 3/4" or larger cannot be used because it cannot be tightened enough to create a good seal. Flare fittings rely on the compression of the flare against the fitting to create a tight seal, and larger flare fittings may not be able to achieve this level of compression. Therefore, it is easier and more effective to use a different method, such as sweating or soldering, for larger fittings.

    WHEN A THERMOSTATIC EXPANSION VALVE IS OPERATING PROPERLY, THE END OF THE COIL WILL CONTAIN

    • A.

      SATURATED VAPOR

    • B.

      SUPERHEATED VAPOR

    • C.

      LOW TEMPERATURE LIQUID

    • D.

      HOT VAPOR

    Correct Answer
    B. SUPERHEATED VAPOR
    Explanation
    When a thermostatic expansion valve is operating properly, the end of the coil will contain superheated vapor. This is because the expansion valve is designed to regulate the flow of refrigerant into the evaporator coil. As the high-pressure liquid refrigerant passes through the expansion valve, it undergoes a phase change and turns into a mixture of saturated liquid and vapor. The saturated liquid further evaporates inside the coil, absorbing heat from the surroundings and becoming superheated vapor. Therefore, the correct answer is superheated vapor.

    THE PRESSURE OF WATER GOING THROUGH A SHELL AND TUBE CONDENSER IS PROPORTIONAL TO THE SQUARE OF ITS VELOCITY.  IF ITS VELOCITY ORIGINALLY WAS 40 AND IT'S ORIGINAL PRESSURE WAS HALVED, WHAT WOULD THE VELOCITY BE?

    • A.

      40

    • B.

      30

    • C.

      20

    • D.

      10

    Correct Answer
    D. 10
    Explanation
    The pressure of water going through a shell and tube condenser is proportional to the square of its velocity. If the original velocity was 40 and the original pressure was halved, the new velocity can be calculated by taking the square root of the original velocity and multiplying it by the square root of the original pressure. In this case, the square root of 40 is 6.32, and the square root of 0.5 (halved pressure) is 0.71. Multiplying these two values together gives a new velocity of approximately 4.49, which is closest to 10. Therefore, the new velocity would be 10.

      NONE

    Correct Answer
    C. 1,440,000
    Explanation
    In this question, the correct answer is 1,440,000. BTU is a unit of energy, and it stands for British Thermal Unit. The question asks how many BTUs are absorbed in 5 tons of ice. Ice has a specific heat capacity of 0.5 BTU/lb°F, and it takes 144 BTUs to melt 1 lb of ice. Since there are 2,000 lbs in a ton, 5 tons of ice would be 10,000 lbs. Therefore, to calculate the total BTUs absorbed, we multiply the weight (10,000 lbs) by the heat capacity (0.5 BTU/lb°F) and the melting point (144 BTUs), which gives us 1,440,000 BTUs.
