    Ha-why is it that a math test always becomes a debate over definitions, syntax and grammer. And no, I didn't take the test, cuz you are all smarter than me.

    I got a 76%! I am an ex Ford Certified Technician, College Graduate with an Engineering degree, and current new car sales manager.

    Selling cars for the past 15 years must have turned my brain to mush!

    Bwahahaha! 100% :D

    But like most of the other aces, I'm an engineer, so it doesn't really count I guess.

    In actuality, we engineers ought to have been flogged if we didn't ace it. ;)

    Good thing there wasn't a section on spelling in there . . . . . .

    I goy 92% but found some answers were ambiguous. The Planetary gears for example, I knew exactly what would happen, but trying to dedide which description THEY thought described what would happen was the hard part. The fan question is too ambiguous, again I knew what would happen but couldn't work out what the answers actually meant.
    The one I did get genuinely wrong was the water flowing through the tapered tube. Oh well maybe I understand it better now. Personally the pulleys and gears were easy for my, I've always understood them.
    When I left school I sat many tests that were similar as part of recruitment for various companies.

    Okay, an 84 here but I swear question 25 is wrong...they say it's a series-parallel circuit...I say it's just a parallel circuit. What's the difference between the circuit in question 24 and 25 other than where the load wires are connected (just slide 'em up in 24 to where they're connected in 25 - same electrical point). A series-parallel circuit would have a series load and a parallel load. And yes, there were ambiguous questions..

    80% and I design houses for a livin'. Fun way to burn some time. By the way, your iced tea comes up the straw when there's a vacuum create by "SUCKING"! If it's atmospheric pressure that pushes the tea up to my pie hole, I don't want to hear that, you engineers.

    86% when i looked back i missed some for not reading things clearly lol.
  27. I still don't understand the worm gear question (#11). It looks like the flutes on the worm gear are going to move to the right with the rotation shown by the arrow, and the other gear should follow that by rotating clockwise. Where am I going wrong?

    that's one i never figured out either! when i saw that i missed it i looked at it more and still didn't see it. just figured i was being dumb.

  29. The teeth on the worm gear are like normal right hand threads on a bolt or screw. Think about it like a bolt going through a nut. If you hold the HEAD of the bolt while you turn it counterclockwise with a wrench, and you keep the nut from turning, the nut will push away from the bolt head as you turn the screw. The top of the big gear will push away from the end with the red arrow and rotate the big gear counterclockwise.
