Sample Practice Test Questions
What function does a two-stroke cycle engine perform on the second stroke?
combustion and exhaust
The two strokes of a two-stroke cycle engine are fuel intake and compression then combustion and exhaust.
Another name for a reciprocating engine is a(n):
piston engine
A reciprocating engine is an engine whose crankshaft is turned by pistons moving up and down in a cylinder.
Control arms connect a vehicle's suspension to the frame. The connection to the frame uses:
bushings
Control arms (upper and lower) connect a vehicle's suspension to the frame. The connection to the wheels is through ball joints which allow the control arms to turn and move up and down simultaneously. The frame connection uses bushings.
The formula specifying Ohm's law is which of the following?
V = IR
Ohm's law specifies the relationship between voltage (V), current (I), and resistance (R) in an electrical circuit: V = IR.
If the length of AB equals the length of BD, point B __________ this line segment.
bisects
A line segment is a portion of a line with a measurable length. The midpoint of a line segment is the point exactly halfway between the endpoints. The midpoint bisects (cuts in half) the line segment.
The spark plug fires during which engine stoke?
power
During the power stroke, just before the piston reaches top dead center, the spark plug fires and ignites the compressed air-fuel mixture. The resulting expansion due to combustion pushes the piston back down the cylinder toward bottom dead center.
What is \( \frac{1}{8} \) x \( \frac{1}{5} \)?
To multiply fractions, multiply the numerators together and then multiply the denominators together:
\( \frac{1}{8} \) x \( \frac{1}{5} \) = \( \frac{1 x 1}{8 x 5} \) = \( \frac{1}{40} \) = \(\frac{1}{40}\)
Which of the following statements about drill bits is not true?
drill bits are primarily left-handed
Drill bits remove material to create holes. They come in a variety of sizes, maxing out at ¼" for woodworking and ½" for metalworking. The majority of drill bits are right-handed which means they cut while rotating in a clockwise direction.
Inductance is a factor in which of the following?
an AC circuit
Inductance is a property of an AC circuit (or a component in an AC circuit) that quantifies resistance to changes in current. The current in an AC circuit is continuously changing and inductive reactance (the opposition to change) depends both on the inductance of the circuit or component and the rate at which the current is changing.
