  • Q1
    What is the Brayton cycle?
    A thermodynamic cycle that uses constant pressure heating and cooling processes.
    A cycle that involves changing the volume of a gas to do work.
    A cycle that introduces a fluid into an engine to generate motion.
    A cycle that uses heat exchange to generate electricity.
  • Q2
    What is a turbofan engine?
    An engine that is only used on helicopters
    An engine that uses magnets instead of fuel
    An engine that has a large fan at the front that produces most of the thrust
    An engine that runs on solar power
  • Q3
    What is the purpose of the fan in a turbofan engine?
    To cool the engine
    To spin the turbine
    To produce most of the thrust
    To regulate fuel flow
  • Q4
    What makes up a turbofan engine?
    A steering wheel, pedals, and gear shifter
    A fan, battery, alternator, and muffler
    A radiator, carburetor, spark plug, and distributor
    A fan, compressor, combustor, turbine, and nozzle
  • Q5
    What is the function of the compressor in a turbofan engine?
    To spin the fan
    To ignite the fuel
    To direct exhaust gases
    To compress air before it enters the combustion chamber
  • Q6
    What is the primary advantage of a turbofan engine over a traditional turbojet engine?
    More reliable design
    Lower noise levels
    Improved fuel efficiency
    Higher maximum speed
  • Q7
    What is the role of the turbine in a turbofan engine?
    To drive the compressor and fan
    To direct exhaust gases out of the engine
    To slow down the aircraft during landing
    To mix air with fuel before ignition
  • Q8
    What is the purpose of the combustor in a turbofan engine?
    To generate electricity for the aircraft's electrical systems
    To burn fuel and mix it with compressed air to produce hot, expanding gases
    To minimize turbulence and improve air flow
    To filter incoming air and trap debris
  • Q9
    How does a turbofan engine produce thrust?
    By pushing air through a series of ducts and channels
    By expelling a high-velocity stream of hot gases out of the rear of the engine
    By creating a low-pressure area in front of the engine
    By harnessing the power of magnetic fields
  • Q10
    What is a turboprop engine?
    An engine that uses a steam turbine to turn a propeller.
    An engine that uses a wind turbine to turn a propeller.
    An engine that uses a gas turbine to turn a propeller.
    An engine that uses a diesel fuel to turn a propeller.
  • Q11
    What is the advantage of a turboprop engine compared to a piston engine?
    Lower fuel consumption.
    Less expensive to manufacture.
    More reliable.
