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!"

2. ### tejas..........

Hehe. Very funny!

3. ### jayanth&lt;.: : Call Quits : :.&gt;

Nice Post... I'll try to learn all the answers for my Lab viva..

4. ### d_ist_urb_edGenuflect b*tches!

LOL, cool post

5. ### mani_rawalpindiGUNS AND GUITARS

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

you know just as a backup

6. ### 6String_assasinThe Painkiller

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

by the way, only 5 engineers?

7. ### SubhroArgentina lost :&quot;(

gr8 post

gr8 post :rock:

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

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

9. ### jayanth&lt;.: : Call Quits : :.&gt;

4 years of Torture you mean....

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. ### gautam_njoyNew Member

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

12. ### bob-bobbyExtinct or Banned!

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

13. ### jayanth&lt;.: : Call Quits : :.&gt;

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

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

15. ### 6String_assasinThe Painkiller

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

16. ### jayanth&lt;.: : Call Quits : :.&gt;

@ Nebu :- Home aint comfortable in Bachelor life..

U are right..the amount of freedom i have here is what makes it so much fun..
I take back my earlier statement......

18. ### thecooloneJudas Priest My Guide

Nice post !! will remember some of them during my viva !! LOL

19. ### uxmaNew Member

good

Being an Electrical Engineer , I had almost same concepts in first yr still i got thru all of my vivas :

20. ### ananyaNew Member

hahahahaha
the engg facts are very true
at present im hearing the top two engg rumors(as mentioned above)
the capacitor one really good.
this is a good piece of information this will :Lighten: all the engg.
