    How many legs has an led got

    • A.

      One

    • B.

      Two

    • C.

      Three

    Correct Answer
    B. Two
  • 3. 

    How can we tell which one is the positive leg

    • A.

      Both the same size

    • B.

      Positive one is longer than the other

    • C.

      Negative one is longer than the other

    Correct Answer
    B. Positive one is longer than the other
    Explanation
    The positive leg of a component or device can be identified as the longer one compared to the negative leg. This is a common convention in electronics, where the positive terminal is typically longer to make it easier to distinguish and connect correctly. Therefore, if both legs are the same size, it is not possible to determine which one is the positive leg.

    What does a resistor do in a circuit

    • A.

      Resists the flow of current

    • B.

      Blows up an led

    • C.

      No purpose, there to look good

    Correct Answer
    A. Resists the flow of current
    Explanation
    A resistor is an electronic component that is used to limit or control the flow of electric current in a circuit. It provides resistance to the flow of current, which helps regulate the amount of current passing through the circuit. This is important as it prevents excessive current from damaging other components in the circuit. Therefore, the correct answer is that a resistor resists the flow of current.

    What should we be careful with when working with electronics

    • A.

      Plastics

    • B.

      Water

    • C.

      Overhead powerlines

    • D.

      Overloaded sockets

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Water
    C. Overhead powerlines
    D. Overloaded sockets
    Explanation
    When working with electronics, it is important to be careful with water because water can conduct electricity and cause short circuits or damage to the electronic components. Overhead powerlines should also be handled with caution as they carry high voltage electricity, and contact with them can result in electric shock or even death. Additionally, overloaded sockets can lead to overheating and electrical fires, so it is crucial to avoid plugging too many devices into a single socket to prevent overloading.

  • 6. 

    Why do we use a fuse tester

    • A.

      To prevent accidents

    • B.

      To look good

    • C.

      No purpose

    • D.

      Test faulty electrical equipment

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. To prevent accidents
    D. Test faulty electrical equipment
    Explanation
    A fuse tester is used to prevent accidents by ensuring that the fuses in electrical equipment are functioning correctly. It helps in identifying faulty fuses that may cause electrical malfunctions or even fires. By testing the fuses, potential hazards can be detected and resolved before any accidents occur. Additionally, testing faulty electrical equipment is another purpose of using a fuse tester as it helps in diagnosing and troubleshooting issues with the electrical system, ensuring the safety of both the equipment and the users.

    What battery do we use in our circuit

    • A.

      1.5v

    • B.

      9v

    • C.

      4v

    • D.

      0.9v

    • E.

      200v

    Correct Answer
    B. 9v
    Explanation
    The battery used in the circuit is 9v. This is because the voltage requirement of the circuit is such that it can only be satisfied by a 9v battery. The other options, 1.5v, 4v, 0.9v, and 200v, do not meet the voltage requirement of the circuit. Therefore, the correct answer is 9v.

    What are the safety rules of soldering

    • A.

      Watch out for the heat

    • B.

      Wear an apron

    • C.

      Wear goggles

    • D.

      Dont breath in fumes

    • E.

      Dont touvh the heat element

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Watch out for the heat
    B. Wear an apron
    C. Wear goggles
    D. Dont breath in fumes
    E. Dont touvh the heat element
    Explanation
    The given answer lists several safety rules for soldering. These rules include: watching out for the heat, wearing an apron, wearing goggles, not breathing in fumes, and not touching the heat element. These rules are important to follow in order to prevent burns, protect clothing, protect the eyes from potential hazards, avoid inhaling harmful fumes, and avoid direct contact with the hot element, ensuring a safe soldering process.

    What did we use to put the holes in the circuit board

    • A.

      Coping saw

    • B.

      Pcb drill

    • C.

      Pillar drill

    Correct Answer
    B. Pcb drill
    Explanation
    A PCB drill is the correct tool used to put holes in a circuit board. A coping saw is a handheld tool used for cutting curves in wood, while a pillar drill is a stationary tool used for drilling holes in various materials. However, when it comes to circuit boards, a PCB drill is specifically designed for precision drilling of small holes in the board without damaging the delicate components. Therefore, the most appropriate tool for putting holes in a circuit board is a PCB drill.

    What are the two main types of plastics

    • A.

      Thermosets and thermos

    • B.

      Thermosetting and thermosets

    • C.

      Thermosetting and thermos

    • D.

      One cast and two set

    Correct Answer
    B. Thermosetting and thermosets
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "thermosetting and thermosets". Thermosetting plastics are materials that, once molded and set, cannot be reshaped by heating. They have a strong and rigid structure, making them suitable for applications that require durability and resistance to heat and chemicals. Thermosets, on the other hand, are a subset of thermosetting plastics. They undergo a chemical reaction during the molding process, resulting in a permanent and irreversible change in their molecular structure. This makes them even more rigid and heat-resistant than other thermosetting plastics.
