Mini-Quiz: Electrical Machines

by Ron Kurtus (28 January 2016)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. What is converted in an electrical generator?

Electrical to mechanical energy

Mechanical to electrical energy

AC to DC electricity

2. What is the result when electrical current is sent into a motor?

It causes the motor shaft to turn

It creates electrical eddy currents

It magnetizes the motor

3. Why don't some people consider a transformer an electrical machine?

There is no resulting mechanical motion

It cannot be used with DC electricity

The conversion ratio is too great

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Understanding Machines. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
