Well I passed - comfortably - but not 100%. Some of that pully stuff confused me - but then I'm easily confused. ; -)

I got a 78%, just one question shy of passing (80%) the first time through. What was your score, Hugo? :wink: :biggrin:

92% - now I feel better about doing my own oil changes

2 questions I got wrong with careless answers (misreading the question or now looking very closely at the pictures) :mad:

I'm still taking it but i found a mistake in it. it asks what force is required to lift this, and the answers are all in Kg. the unit of force is a Newton (N).

78% DOH. I think those weight questions got me but considering I am a retired Army guy from the artillery not so bad maybe. If I needed something lifted I would get a private or two. If it was heavier then I would just get a few more.

only got 2 wrong because we went over everything like this in my physics class.

i got the fluid one wrong though where you have to say which one will it rize higher in and was causes rotational motion to begin in an engine. (i confused cam and crank shaft in that one)
