Electrical Measurements Internship Test

Intern has to take Electrical Measurements internship test in which they will be asked 50 multiple-choice questions. They have to score grade A or A* on this test to be eligible for the internship. Here’s a sample set of questions on the Electrical Measurements topic.

1. What is used to characterize single port devices, multiport devices, etc?
(A) current values
(B) impedance values
(C) voltage values
(D) power values
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: Impedance values are used to characterize one port devices, networks, multiport devices and other systems.

2. Balance condition can be obtained by _________
(A) varying the standard resistance R3
(B) varying the resistance arms R1 and R2
(C) keeping the unknown resistance R4 constant
(D) by making use of a null detector
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: The balance condition in a Wheatstone bridge can be obtained by varying the resistances R1 and R2. Null detector is used for determining balance condition.

3. Amount of deflection of the galvanometer depends on _________
(A) resistance of the ratio arms
(B) sensitivity
(C) current flowing through the bridge
(D) emf across the circuit
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: The amount of deflection of the galvanometer depends upon its sensitivity. Resistance of the ratio arms does not affect the amount of deflection of the galvanometer.

4. Thermal emf can be prevented by _________
(A) using more sensitive galvanometers
(B) using similar metals
(C) by separating the dissimilar metals
(D) reducing the supply emf
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: Thermal emf can be eliminated by making use of sensitive galvanometers consisting of copper coils and copper suspension systems. Dissimilar metals can’t be physically separated.

5. Thermal compensation can be provided in a Wheatstone bridge by ________
(A) using more than one resistive sensor
(B) making use of a heat sink
(C) using cooling fans
(D) immersing the circuit into a liquid
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: By making use of more than one resistive sensor within the four arms of a Wheatstone bridge we get a full bridge, half bridge or a quarter bridge setup with an automatic balancing effect.
