The property of an electrical circuit that opposes any change in voltage is called:
What is the danger when working around capacitors?
An electrical shock hazard may exist.
What is a capacitor?
A device used to store electrical energy.
The combined capacitance of two capacitors in parallel is:
The sum of the two capacitors.
phase AC underground cables must be provided with overcurrent protection using a:
Why is 440volt, three phase power more commonly used in mining than 220 volt, three phase power?
Because 440 volt power draws less current so cables and control circuit wiring can be smaller.
Current that changes periodically in direction is:
Alternating current.
Define alternating current:
Current changing constantly in magnitude and periodically in direction.
The property of an electric circuit that opposes any change in current is called:
What position of a selector switch using a voltmeter would you select to check a 120volt AC circuit to obtain the most accurate reading?
200 volts AC.
Operating coils, motors, transformers, relays and solenoids depend upon:
Electromagnetism for their operation.
Alternating current may be defined as:
Current that changes constantly in magnitude and periodically in direction.
Current in an AC circuit may be measured by:
Clamp on ammeter.
The most reliable method to use to determine whether or not the heart has stopped is by checking the:
Carotid pulse, which is located in the neck next to the Adam\'s apple.
What is the first step to be followed in aiding a victim of electrical shock?
Check to make sure that the victim is not still in contact with the electricity.
Which of the following is NOT a symptom of electrical shock?.
At what rate should mouth to mouth resuscitation be applied?
12 to 15 times a minute.
A burn causing a blister is classified as a:
Second degree burn.
How can you tell if a victim receiving mouth to mouth resuscitation is getting air into the lungs?
The chest should rise or inflate.
How should clothing be removed from a burn?
Cut around clothing that has adhered to the burned area.
Under fault conditions, the grounding resistor in a high voltage circuit limits the voltage drop in the grounding circuit external to the resistor to not more than:
100 volts.
What should the duty rating of a grounding resistor be?
If current were flowing through a grounding resistor in a 440 volt, resistance grounded system, this would probably be because:
Grounded phase and ground fault devices were not operating.
Where should grounding resistors be located?
At the source transformer.
Should a ground fault occur, what device can be installed to limit the current in the neutral of a three phase AC system?
A grounding resistor.
High voltage is used to transmit power over long distances:
Because less current flowing at high voltage causes less line loss per kilowatt.

Nearly constant.
What happens to a motor that is connected to a three phase cable when two of the cable\'s leads are reversed?
The motor rotation is reversed.
If any two phase wires are reversed on a three phase motor, the motor will:
