Colorado-Electrical Online Practice Test

These are actual questions from our online practice test.

We have included a question from each chapter of the test. Every question will be multiple choice. The answers are not included with the sample.

17 Part 1 - Fluorescent, LED, HID Fabrication, Tubes and Electrical Flow

One type of hysteresis is a simple lag between input and output.If  a sinusoidal input X(t) and output Y(t) that are separated by a phase lag φ:

 egin{align}
X(t) &= X_0 sin omega t  Y(t) &= Y_0 sinleft(omega t-phi
ight).
end{align}

Such behavior can occur in linear systems, and a more general form of response is

 Y(t) = chi_	ext{i} X(t) + int_0^{infty} Phi_	ext{d} (	au) X(t-	au) , mathrm{d}	au,

where chi_	ext{i} is the instantaneous response and Phi_d(	au) is the impulse response to an impulse that occurred 	au time units in the past. In the frequency domain, input and output are related by a complex generalized susceptibility that _____________ be computed from Phi_d; it is mathematically equivalent to a transfer function in linear filter theory and analogue signal processing.

18 Part 2 - Fluorescent, LED, HID Fabrication, Tubes and Electrical Flow

An ideal dipole consists of two opposite charges with infinitesimal separation. The potential and field of such an ideal dipole are found next as a limiting case of an example of two opposite charges at non-zero separation.

Two closely spaced opposite charges have a potential of the form:

phi(mathbf{r})=frac{q}{4 pi varepsilon _0 | mathbf{r}- mathbf{r}_+ |} -frac {q}{4 pi varepsilon _0 | mathbf{r}- mathbf{r}_- | }  ,

with charge separation, d, defined as

mathbf{d} = mathbf{r}_+ - mathbf{r}_-  ,

The position relative to their center of mass (assuming equal masses), R, and the unit vector in the direction of R are given by:

{mathbf{R}} = mathbf{r} - frac{mathbf{r}_+ + mathbf{r}_-}{2} , quad hat{mathbf{R}} = frac {mathbf{R}}{R}  ,

Taylor expansion in d/R (see multipole expansion and quadrupole) allows this potential to be expressed as a series.[3][4]

phi(mathbf{R}) = frac{1}{4 pi varepsilon _0} frac {qmathbf{d}cdothat{mathbf{R}}}{R^2} + Oleft(frac{d^2}{R^2}
ight) approx frac {1}{4 pi varepsilon _0} frac {mathbf{p}cdothat{mathbf{R}}}{R^2}  ,

where higher order terms in the series are vanishing at large distances, R, compared to d.[5] Here, the electric dipole moment p is, as above:

 mathbf{p} = qmathbf{d}  .

The result for the dipole potential also can be expressed as:[6]

phi(mathbf{R})=- mathbf{p}cdotmathbf{
abla}frac {1}{4 pi varepsilon _0 R} ,

which relates the dipole potential to that of a point charge. A key point is that the potential of the dipole falls off faster with distance _____________ than that of the point charge.

The electric field of the dipole is the negative gradient of the potential, leading to:

 mathbf Eleft(mathbf R
ight) = frac{3(mathbf pcdothatmathbf R)hatmathbf R-mathbf p}{4pivarepsilon_0 R^3}  .
19 Sign Components

 The voltage and current ratio of autotransformers can be formulated the same as other two-winding transformers:

frac{V_1}{V_2}=frac{N_1}{N_2} = a

(0<V2<V1)

The ampere-turns provided by the upper half:

F_U = (N_1 - N_2)I_1 = (1-frac{1}{a})N_1I_1

The ampere-turns provided by the lower half:

F_L = N_2(I_2 - I_1) = frac{N_1}{a}(I_2-I_1)

For ampere-turn balance, FU=FL:

(1-frac{1}{a})N_1 I_1 = frac{N_1}{a}(I_2-I_1)

Therefore:

frac{I_1}{I_2} = frac{1}{a}

20 Sign Design and Mounting

A ___________________ sign is a sign mounted to a building so that it provides information while also serving as shelter. Or signage, usually a vinyl application, affixed to existing awnings. 

21 OSHA Safety, Dig Alert, Training, Asbestos and Code of Federal Regulations, Title 29, Part 1926

For all Class I jobs involving the removal of more than ____________ linear or 10 square feet of thermal system insulation or surfacing material; for all other Class I jobs, where the employer cannot produce a negative exposure assessment pursuant, or where employees are working in areas adjacent to the regulated area, while the Class I work is being performed, the employer shall use one of the following methods to ensure that airborne asbestos does not migrate from the regulated area:

22 Employees, Contractors, Insurance and Safety

OSHA form 300, log and summary of occupational injury must be kept for how many years?

23 Mathematics and Calculations

If the voltage V in an electric circuit is held constant, the current I is inversely proportional to the resistance R. If the current is 50 amperes when resistance is 240 ohms,find current when the resistance is 150 ohms.
