This is best answer by B.E students during viva.This one is for those who hadnightmares duringtheir Engineering******************************************************************************************* Interviewer:Why is a thicker conductor necessary to carry a current in A.C.ascompared to D.C. ?Candidate :An AC current goes up and down (drawing a sinusoid) andrequires more space inside the wire, so the wire has to be thicker. ************************************************************************************ External (to student): "Why does a capacitor block DC but allow AC To pass through?Student:See, a capacitor is like this ---| |--- , OK.DC comesstraight, like this ----------, and the capacitor stops it. But AC,goes UP, DOWN,UP DOWN and jumps right over the capacitor!" ************************************************************************************ Interviewer: How will you tell if that wall outlet carries AC or DC?Candidate:I will put my finger in. If it is pushed away, it is AC. If it getsstuck, it was DC. ************************************************************************************ Interviewer: H! ow will you reverse direction of an Induction motor?Candidate:I will remove the four bolts at the x-ud, turn the motor around, and putback the bolts. ************************************************************************************ Interviewer: How do you start a synchronous motor?Candidate:Vrrrrrrrmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm (in rising pitch)Interviewer: Stop! Stop!Candidate:rrrrrrrmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm (in falling pitch) ************************************************************************************ Examiner: "What is a step-up transformer?"Student:"A transformer that is put on top of electric poles."Examiner (smiling): "And then what is a step-down transformer?"Student (hesitantly):"Uh - A transformer that is put in the x-udment or in a pit?"Examiner (pouncing): "Then what do you call a transformer that is installed on theground?"(Student knows he is caught-can't answer) Examiner (impatiently): "Well?"Student (triumphantly):"A stepless transformer, sir!" *******************************************************************************************
