(*Note that on question 40 you may simply take
double the answer you would get at the 300 mA station. If
you have memorized that 15 s and 20 s go together at the
300 mA station, then a fifteenth at 600 would be double
20 or 40. Then take 3 sets of 40. Many problems at the
600 mA station can be solved this wayby just doubling
the answer you would get at 300 mA. Also, many mAs
values can be figured at the 400 mA station in a similar
manner by doubling numbers you are familiar with using
at the 200 mA station.)
