An insulated-gate FET will maintain a high input resistance when its gate is made: positive only. negative only. positive or negative with respect to its source. to conduct a low reverse current.

To protect MOSFETs against static charges: the leads are coated with a varnish insulation. the leads are shorted together until they are placed into a circuit. they are shipped in special static-protection packages. both b and c

A unijunction transistor (UJT): operates similar to a bipolar transistor. operates similar to a field-effect transistor. does not amplify. none of these

When a UJT switches to the ON state, current is conducted between: collector and emitter. base 1 and base 2. emitter and base 1. all of these

A silicon-controlled controlled rectifier (SCR) is normally biased so that it can be turned ON by: momentarily increasing its forward voltage. increasing its reverse voltage. momentarily applying a gate current. momentarily decreasing its gate current.

When an SCR circuit is operated from an AC source: the gate can be used to switch the circuit ON and OFF at all times.

once switched ON by the gate, the circuit can not be switched OFF by the gate. the output is always DC. both a and c

) In order for an SCR to be triggered into conduction: the anode must be positive with respect to the cathode. both the anode and the gate must be positive with respect to the cathode. the anode must be negative with respect to the cathode. the gate must be positive with respect to the cathode.

SCR phase-shift shift control circuits are used to vary the ____ between the trigger pulse and the point in the conducting cond cycle when the pulse occurs. power delivered time relationship different points motor speed

____ of the positive half-cycle will be conducted to the load, depending on when the SCR fires. All None Part all of these

How is a silicon-controlled rectifier similar to a diode rectifier? Both conduct current in one direction only. Both can be classified as thyristors. Both have one PN junction. all of these

An out-of-circuit circuit ohmmeter check of a non-defective 24 24-V V diac should indicate: a high resistance reading in both directions. a low resistance reading in both directions.

a high resistance reading in one direction and a low resistance reading in the other. zero resistance in one direction and infinite resistance in the other.

Breakover voltage of a diac is: never to be exceeded. the point at which its resistance changes from high to low. the same as avalanche voltage. always less than 0.6 V.

The nucleus of most atoms contain: neutrons protons neither of the above both of the above

A negative ion has an excess of: electrons protons neither of the above both of the above

Electrons in the outermost shell of an atom are called: free electrons valence electrons neither of the above both of the above

When an electron becomes a free electron its energy level is: cut in half unchanged doubled

none of the above

The joule is the base unit of: energy current power resistance

Kilowatthour is a unit of: charge energy power time

A wattsecond is equal to a(n): ampere coulomb joule volt

The charge possessed by 6.25 x 1018 electrons equals one: ampere coulomb joule volt A coulomb per second equals the base unit of: current power resistance voltage Joule per coulomb is the definition of a:
