Eco Building Design - Qp10 - Quiz

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Dark colours tend to reflect heat energy, and light colours tend to absorb heat energy.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Dark colours tend to absorb heat energy, and light colours tend to reflect heat energy. This is because dark colours have a higher absorption rate for light, causing them to absorb more energy and heat up. On the other hand, light colours have a higher reflectivity, causing them to reflect more energy and remain cooler. Therefore, the statement that dark colours reflect heat energy and light colours absorb heat energy is incorrect.

    Hot colours have a psychological affect of making people feel active. They don't encourage relaxation, but they do encourage work.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Hot colours, such as red, orange, and yellow, are known to stimulate and energize people. These colours have a psychological effect of making individuals feel more active and alert. They are often associated with passion, excitement, and intensity. On the other hand, cool colours like blue and green are more calming and can promote relaxation. Therefore, it is true that hot colours do not encourage relaxation but rather encourage work and productivity.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Space is the ________ which is defined by physical boundaries such as walls, roofs, indoor plants, furniture, floor surface and the roof above.

    • A.

      Volume

    • B.

      Extent

    • C.

      Size

    Correct Answer
    A. Volume
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Volume" because it refers to the amount of space that is enclosed within the physical boundaries mentioned in the question. It is a measure of the three-dimensional space that is occupied by objects or substances. In this context, volume is used to describe the spatial capacity of a given area, taking into account the dimensions and boundaries defined by walls, roofs, furniture, and other elements present in the space.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The time of day will affect the appearance of a space dramatically, as the sun moves, shadows develop and light intensities change.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The appearance of a space is indeed affected by the time of day. As the sun moves, shadows are formed and the intensity of light changes, which can dramatically alter the way a space looks. Different times of the day can create different moods and atmospheres within a space, making it important to consider the time of day when designing or experiencing a space.
