111 Self Test Questions

Define matter. Any substance that occupies space and has weight.
Since liquids and gases have many properties in common, how are they frequently classified? As fluids.
All matter is made up of what? Molecules.
Which matter has the property of resisting changes in shape when a force is applied? Solid.
When sufficient force to a solid causes distortion, the solid is said to have exceeded what? Its elastic limit.
Which factors affect the amount of expansion and contraction of a solid? The amount of temperature change and the expansion characteristics of the solid.
What are the most outstanding characteristics of a liquid? Its ability to conform to the shape of its containing vessel and that it has a free surface.
For a liquid to transmit a pushing force, what condition must exist first? It must be completely enclosed in a container.
What would cause a cylinder of air to increase in pressure when placed in the sun? The air (gas) expands as its temperature increases, and since it is confined by the cylinder, its pressure will increase

How can resistance to flow be reduced? By streamlining the flow
What pressure difference can be observed during fluid-flow through a venturi? There is a pressure drop at the narrow opening (throat) of a venturi as the rate of flow of the fluid increases at this point The pressure will increase again after passing through the throat

If a third check valve is installed, what could be the problem if fluid is only sent into the system on the extension stroke? The inlet check valve is malfunctioning
What is a drawback of a constant-volume pump? As long as the pump rotates, the fluid-flow it produces will eventually build up pressure high enough in the confined area to burst the lines and container

On a vane-type pump, what keeps the vanes against the housing wall? Springs
In the constant-volume piston pump, what drives the cylinder block? Universal link
