Sample Practice Test Questions
If angle a = 68° and angle b = 39° what is the length of angle c?
The sum of the interior angles of a triangle is 180°:
180° = a° + b° + c°
c° = 180° - a° - b°
c° = 180° - 68° - 39° = 73°
The mechanical advantage (MA) of a wedge is its length divided by its thickness:
MA = \( \frac{l}{t} \) = \( \frac{12 in.}{3 in.} \) = 4
When two lines intersect, adjacent angles are __________ (they add up to 180°) and angles across from either other are __________ (they're equal).
supplementary, vertical
Angles around a line add up to 180°. Angles around a point add up to 360°. When two lines intersect, adjacent angles are supplementary (they add up to 180°) and angles across from either other are vertical (they're equal).
Which of these is not necessary for combustion?
accelerant
Combustion is the burning of an air-fuel mixture to provide energy. It requires the presence of air, fuel, and a heat source to ignite the air-fuel mixture. In the internal combustion engine that powers automobiles and trucks the combustion happens inside the engine utilzing a fuel like gasoline, diesel fuel, or natural gas.
f_{A}d_{A} = f_{B}d_{B} + f_{C}d_{C}
For this problem, this equation becomes:
50 lbs. x 10 ft. = 60 lbs. x 1 ft. + f_{C} x 9 ft.
500 ft. lbs. = 60 ft. lbs. + f_{C} x 9 ft.
f_{C} = \( \frac{500 ft. lbs. - 60 ft. lbs.}{9 ft.} \) = \( \frac{440 ft. lbs.}{9 ft.} \) = 48.89 lbs.
The __________ nervous system controls voluntary actions.
somatic
Part of the peripheral nervous system, the somatic nervous system is made up of nerve fibers that send sensory information to the central nervous system and control voluntary actions.
Which of Earth's layers has weather?
troposphere
The Earth's atmosphere has several layers starting with the troposphere which is closest in proximity to the surface. Containing most of the Earth's breathable air (oxygen and nitrogen), it's a region with warmer temperatures closer to the surface and cooler temperatures farther away which results in the rising and falling air that generates weather.
