Which of the following is not an advantage of using a tape measure over using a ruler?
measure with more accuracy
Rulers are used to both measure distance and to draw straight lines. Tape measures are flexible rulers useful for measuring longer distances and in tighter spaces. Rulers and tape measures provide similarly accurate measurements.
Longer the electrical wires mean _______________ voltage drop.
Electrical wires have a certain amount of resistance per foot. A longer wire means more resistance and a greater voltage drop.
Electrons will flow as current from areas of __________ potential (concentration of electrons) to areas of __________ potential.
Voltage (V) is the electrical potential difference between two points. Electrons will flow as current from areas of high potential (concentration of electrons) to areas of low potential. Voltage and current are directly proportional in that the higher the voltage applied to a conductor the higher the current that will result.
A block and tackle with four pulleys would have a mechanical advantage of:
Two or more pulleys used together constitute a block and tackle which, unlike a fixed pulley, does impart mechanical advantage as a function of the number of pulleys that make up the arrangement. So, for example, a block and tackle with three pulleys would have a mechanical advantage of three.
What is the large casing that contains the cylinders and many of the internal components of the engine?
The engine (or cylinder) block is the large casing that contains the cylinders and many of the internal components of the engine.
Which of the following is not true about a line drop?
it is addressed by raising current and lowering voltage across the ransmission line
Electricity is delivered from power stations to customers as AC because it provides a more efficient way to transport electricity over long distances. A line drop is a decrease in voltage between two points on an electrical transmission line due to resistance in the line. A lower current and higher voltage across the line will help compensate for the line drop.
What does the timing belt do?
synchronizes the camshaft and the crankshaft
Maintaining proper synchronization between the rotation of the camshaft and the rotation of the crankshaft is critical to ensure that the engine's valves open and close at the proper times during each cylinder's intake and exhaust strokes.
