# Thread: Engineers, chk this out..

1. ## Engineers, chk this out..

ol engineers, chk this out..

HEY BUDDIES,LOOK WHAT I HAVE DISCOVERED,
This one is for those who had nightmares during their
Engineering Viva's. They bring back fond memories for
those who
care to smile
at the past.
Enjoy!!!
************************************************** ********
Interviewer: Why is a thicker conductor necessary to
carry a current in A.C.as compared to D.C. ?
Candidate: An AC current goes up and down (drawing a
sinusoid) and requires more space inside the wire,
so the wire has to be thicker.
--------------
Interviewer: How will you tell if that wall outlet
carries AC or DC?
Candidate: I will put my finger in. If it is pushed
away, it is AC. If it gets stuck, it was DC.
--------------
Interviewer: How will you reverse direction of an
Induction motor?
Candidate: I will remove the four bolts at the x-ud,
turn the
motor around, and put back the bolts.
--------------
Interviewer: How do you start a synchronous motor?
Candidate: Vrrrrrrrmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm (in rising
pitch)
Interviewer: Stop! Stop!
Candidate: rrrrrrrmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm (in falling
pitch)
--------------
Interviewer: How do you limit surge current within
an integrated circuit?
Candidate: By using a miniature circuit breaker.
-------------
External (to student) : "Why does a capacitor block
DC but allow AC To pass through ?
Student: See, a capacitor is like this ---| |--- ,
OK. DC comes straight, like this ----------,
and the capacitor stops it. But AC goes UP,
DOWN, UP DOWN and jumps right over the capacitor!"
--------------
Examiner: "What is a step-up transformer?"
Student: "A transformer that is put on top of
electric poles."
Examiner (smiling): "And then what is a step-down
transformer?"
Student (hesitantly):"Uh - A transformer that is put
in the basement or in a pit?"
Examiner (pouncing): "Then what do you call a
transformer that is installed on the ground?"
(Student knows he is caught-can't answer)
Examiner (impatiently): "Well?"
Student (triumphantly): "A stepless transformer,
sir!"

syllabus'
'This was the worst paper set in the entire

oh man my pracs are comming soon maybe i memorize some of above

you know just as a backup

6. @jay&mani, surely easier n logical than those we see in the books.

by the way, only 5 engineers?

7. ## gr8 post

gr8 post

looks like u r an electric engineer.. wud go well with electric guitar
thats a nice pj

oh by the way i'm the 6th engineer, ... 6thstring another nice pj

8. After 4 years of engineering I can safetly say that ur Top facts abt engineers is absolutely spot-on...very true indeed..

9. 4 years of Torture you mean....

10. Nah...I didnt let it be that way...I enjoyed hostel life to the fullest....
come to think of it..these are probably going to be the best 4 years of my life...
...typical senti reply for someone about to leave college in a few months...

11. haha.. good one...
wil show it to my bro whos an electrical engg... hihihii

12. i m not a engg ,... but enjoyed the jokes ....

13. @ Nebu :- I'm in my Home town. not Hostel.. Now you know why...

14. @jay ..hmmmm.....true...But u have the comforts of home to make up for it....

15. @subhro, i'm in first yr electronics n comm.
