  4. Which of the following is not true?
    A. When the resistance is low, many electrons move and the current is high
    B. When the resistance is higher, less electrons move and the current is high
    C. When the resistance is very high, no electrons move a all and the current has stopped
    D. Resistance is measured in Amps “amperes”

  5. What determines how much current runs through a conductor?
    A. Temp

  11. Definition of cable losses:
    A. Power lost in the form of heat
    B. Welding cable vs automotive cable
    C. Splicing two cables together

  12. Real world example of troubleshooting. A 2400W inverter connected to a 12V battery with 1.5 meter long cables ( 4 ft 11 inch) 6 AWG cables. Each cable has a voltage drop of 0.32V.  It is calculated that the inverter will now only get 11.36V

    D. 1.75%

  14. Adding a shunt to a system increases resistance True of False

  15. Dirty of corroded contacts ie lug to battery terminal increases resistance
    True or False

  16. Voltage Drop increases as current (the load) increases? True or False

  17. Due to an inferior lug crimp in a battery/inverter system, the customers system has significant voltage drop when the inverter is at max load. Could you measure the voltage drop with a multimeter set to AC mode and probing and measuring across the inverters 
    DC connections?
    Yes or No

  18. To fix a DC ripple in a system, which of the following is NOT a recommended process?
    A. Reduce long battery cables
    B. Check for bad/old or too small batteries
    C. Replace the inverter

  19. Fill in the blank:
    If a large battery blank is needed, we do not recommend the customer to construct the battery bank out of numerous series/parallel 12V lead acid batteries. The reasoning is with a large battery bank like this, it becomes tricky to create a
