Sample Practice Test Questions
Which of the following is not a function of a car battery?
acts as a supplemental source of energy to moderate engine performance
The lead-acid battery is the core of the electrical system, providing current to the ignition system to start the engine as well as delivering supplemental current when the alternator can't handle high electrical system loads and acting as an electrical reservoir for excessive current.
On this circle, line segment AB is the:
diameter
A circle is a figure in which each point around its perimeter is an equal distance from the center. The radius of a circle is the distance between the center and any point along its perimeter. A chord is a line segment that connects any two points along its perimeter. The diameter of a circle is the length of a chord that passes through the center of the circle and equals twice the circle's radius (2r).
Which of the following describes the Earth's mantle?
primarily solid
Mantle makes up 84% of the Earth's volume and has an average thickness of approximately 1,800 miles (2,900 km). It is dense, hot, and primarily solid although in places it behaves more like a viscous fluid as the plates of the upper mantle and crust gradually "float" along its circumference.
Coplanar forces:
act in a common plane
Collinear forces act along the same line of action, concurrent forces pass through a common point and coplanar forces act in a common plane.
Which of blood component fights infection?
white blood cells
Blood is created in bone marrow and is made up of cells suspended in liquid plasma. Red blood cells carry oxygen, white blood cells fight infection, and platelets are cell fragments that allow blood to clot.
The fluid reservoir stores the __________ that the master cylinder uses to maintain hydraulic pressure.
brake fluid
The fluid reservoir stores the brake fluid that the master cylinder uses to maintain hydraulic pressure.
In a series circuit, which of the following is the same across all branches of the circuit?
current
A series circuit has only one path for current to flow. In a series circuit, current (I) is the same throughout the circuit and is equal to the total voltage (V) applied to the circuit divided by the total resistance (R) of the loads in the circuit. The sum of the voltage drops across each resistor in the circuit will equal the total voltage applied to the circuit.
These tools are called:
chisels
Wood chisels are used to shape or smooth wood surfaces. They come in a variety of widths and can be used with hand power or tapped with a mallet when deeper cuts need to be made.
pH is a scale that measures of how basic or acidic a solution is. A solution with a pH of 4 is:
acidic
An acid is a substance that gives up positively charged hydrogen ions (H^{+}) when dissolved in water. A base (alkaline) gives up negatively charged hydroxide ions (OH^{-}) when dissolved in water. pH is a scale that measures of how basic or acidic a solution is. Numbered from 0 to 14, solutions with a pH of 7 are neutral, less than 7 are acidic, more than 7 are alkaline.
The __________ is the greatest factor that divides two integers.
greatest common factor
The greatest common factor (GCF) is the greatest factor that divides two integers.
