Materials needed to take this examination:
Subcourse booklet; a number 2 lead pencil; and ACCP Examination Response Sheet.
There is only one correct answer for each item. Mark the correct answer for each item, then transfer your answers
to the ACCP Examination Response Sheet, completely blacking out the lettered oval which corresponds to your
section (A, B, or C). Use a number 2 lead pencil to mark your responses. Mail your response sheet in the
preaddressed envelope you received with this subcourse.
Complete the following questions by choosing the most correct answer in each case:
A material which can readily give up and accept electrons will offer little opposition to current flow, how
would you categorize this type of material?
A good conductor.
A good insulator.
An ideal resistive material.
What are the four factors which determine the resistance of a conductor?
Temperature, elasticity, cross-sectional area, and the type of material used.
Temperature, type of material used, cross-sectional area, and the length of the material used.
Temperature, elasticity, cross-sectional area, and the length of the material used.
What normally happens if you subject a carbon element of a circuit to heat?
A decrease in resistance of the carbon element due to the negative temperature coefficient of carbon.
An increase in resistance of the carbon element due to the negative temperature coefficient of
A decrease in current flow through the circuit due to the negative temperature coefficient of carbon.
