Default Funny Electrical Questions

Many of you may have seen these as they have been around but I thought I would post them for the newer members.

I thought these questions would be helpful to those studying for the electrical exam. I think it will be very helpful for inspectors as well as contractors to refresh what they should know. Email me if you need answers....

1. What color is a green ground screw?______________________

2. Electricity will leak out of pipes if you do not use rain tight fittings. T F

3. To trip a circuit breaker, you must stick out your foot as it walks by. T F

4. When dealing with conduit, the O.D. must exceed the I.D. or the hole will be on the outside. T F

5. A keyless fixture cannot be unlocked. T F

6. A circuit breaker reads "20" on the handle. This means it can trip 20 times before it is worn out. T F

7. If you plug something 110 volts into a 120 volt outlet, you will have 10 volts leakage. T F

8. When hooking up a 220 volt device, you must use 220 volt wire. T F

9. The gauge number of a wire is the number of plugs the wire can handle. T F

10. A flush mount device may only be hooked up to a toilet. T F

11. An ohm is a Hindu measurement of voltage. T F

12. Electrical Inspectors are also know as: _____________________

13. Service Entrance Conductors direct from the supply house with current already in them are very dangerous. T F

14. High voltage wire is used on upper levels of tall buildings whereas low voltage wire is usually found in the basement or underground. T F

15. If you have a molded-case circuit breaker, the mold can be washed off with warm soapy water. T F

16. Three ECs enter an empty room and lock the only entrance: the door. All have on a tool-belt with a regular screwdriver, a pair of lineman's pliers, and a roll of Scotch-33. The light overhead is supplied by a sinusoidal voltage source and the light has a 0.935% power factor. Harmonics are not a factor, but the Carnot Cycle might be. The next morning, all three ECs leave the room and lock the door behind them. How many ECs are left in the room? __________
