Answer: A. Hydrodynamic

2. This type of bearing is used either to absorb shaft loads or to position the shaft axially.
Answer: B. Thrust bearing

3. Property of a bearing material to withstand repeated load application without cracking or flaking.
Answer: C. Fatigue resistance

4. It is a structural system constructed of linear members forming triangular patterns.
Answer: B. Truss

5. It is defined as the state of lateral instability that occurs when a long member is stressed below the yield point.
Answer: A. Elastic buckling

6. In foundry and molding, green sand refers to sand combined with
Answer: D. Clay and Bentonite

7. Machining process where material is removed by focusing high-velocity electrons on the work piece.
Answer: C. electron-beam machining

8. Machining process where water is ejected from a nozzle at pressures as high as 200,000 lb/in2 (1,400 MPa) and acts as a saw.
Answer: D. water jet machining

9. A welding technique where an external supply of gas, such as carbon dioxide, or by gas generated when the electrode flux heats up is used to protect the molten metal from atmospheric contaminants that may result in poor weld quality.
Answer: A. Gas shielding
