Answers for Exam 1

Question 1 b The capacitor is discharging - so it

discharges 63.2% in one time constant - so
what is left?
Time Constant = the time required for the
current in the circuit to build up to
63.2% of the maximum value

Question 2 a Exceed the voltage at which the capaicitor

is rated, and you destroy the capacitor

Question 3 a Relative' means relative to 'free space'

(a 'vacuum' in other words)

Question 4 b 'Inclination' is the same as 'dip'. Dip

is greatest at the poles and least at the

Question 5 c Read up on the 'Curie Point'

Question 6 a Read up on electromagnetic induction"

Question 7 a Read up on transformer losses

Question 8 c Star wound output - line voltage is 1.73 x

phase voltage

Question 9 c When power is in Watts, it is all true

power - there is no apparent power

Question 10 b Lower frequency will decrease the

reactance of the inductor which will
increase its current, possibly damaging
