    The effect of noise depends on the

    • A.

      Deflection, frequency, and volume

    • B.

      Frequency, volume, and duration of exposure

    • C.

      Deflection, volume, and duration of exposure

    • D.

      Deflection, frequency, and duration of exposure

    Correct Answer
    B. Frequency, volume, and duration of exposure
    Explanation
    The effect of noise depends on the frequency, volume, and duration of exposure. The frequency of the noise refers to the pitch or tone, with some frequencies being more damaging to hearing than others. The volume of the noise, measured in decibels (dB), determines the intensity or loudness of the sound. Prolonged exposure to high volumes can lead to hearing loss. Finally, the duration of exposure refers to the length of time a person is exposed to the noise. Longer exposure increases the risk of hearing damage.

    How many valence electrons are needed to make a good conductor?  

    • A.

      3

    • B.

      4

    • C.

      5

    • D.

      6

    Correct Answer
    A. 3
    Explanation
    A good conductor requires only 3 valence electrons. Valence electrons are the outermost electrons in an atom, and they are responsible for the atom's ability to conduct electricity. In order to be a good conductor, an atom should have few valence electrons, as this allows for easier movement of electrons and the flow of electric current. Therefore, an atom with 3 valence electrons is more likely to be a good conductor compared to atoms with 4, 5, or 6 valence electrons.

    What is the total resistance of a parallel circuit with branch voltages of 440v and 440v and branch currents of 4a and 16a?

    • A.

      44 ohms

    • B.

      68.75 ohms

    • C.

      22 ohms

    • D.

      11 ohms

    Correct Answer
    C. 22 ohms
    Explanation
    In a parallel circuit, the total resistance is calculated using the formula 1/Rt = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3 + ... where Rt is the total resistance and R1, R2, R3, etc. are the individual resistances of the branches. In this case, the branch voltages are the same, indicating that the branches have equal resistance. The branch currents, however, are different. Using the formula V = IR, we can calculate the resistance of each branch. The first branch has a resistance of 440v/4a = 110 ohms, and the second branch has a resistance of 440v/16a = 27.5 ohms. Adding these two resistances together gives us a total resistance of 137.5 ohms. However, since the branches are in parallel, we need to take the reciprocal of this value to find the total resistance, which is approximately 0.00727 ohms. Rounding this to the nearest whole number, we get the correct answer of 22 ohms.
