Metallurgical Engineering MCQs

Q:

What is the wavelength of X-rays?

A) 10 picometers B) 0.01 to 10 nanometers
C) 10 to 400 nanometers D) 400 to 700 nanometers
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 0.01 to 10 nanometers

Explanation: X-rays are electromagnetic waves. These have a wavelength in range 0.01 to 10 nanometers. ϒ-rays have a wavelength less than 10 picometers.

Q:

The amount of absorption of rays depends on the density and thickness of the material.

A) True B) False
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) True

Explanation: Radiation is absorbed inside material based on thickness and density. Hence defects based on density variation are detected.

Q:

________ produce light area on film.

A) Inclusions B) Pores
C) Voids D) Blow holes
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Inclusions

Explanation: Inclusions are denser than the surrounding material. These absorb more radiation than lower density areas. It hence produces light area on film.

Q:

The film in radiographic inspection is called __________

A) Plate B) Radiograph
C) Micrograph D) X-ray sheet
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) Radiograph

Explanation: A photographic film is used on the other side of object. It is known as the radiograph. It is called xerograph if film is exposed to x-ray radiation.

Q:

The dark areas represent an object with ________

A) Lower density B) High density
C) Porosity D) Grain boundaries
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Lower density

Explanation: The dark areas represent an object with lower density. This is because of less absorption of radiation. These parts may be porosity or voids.
