OK, we gots some smart folks here. Let's just see how good ya'll are when it comes to problem solving. I'll let you mull over the answers to the below test for a couple of days, publish yer answers, and we'll see how smart you fellas (and gals) really are!

 

I'll publish the answers this weekend and we'll see how close ya'll got.

 

Engineering Test

 

1. Calculate the smallest limb diameter on a persimmon tree that will support a 10 lb. possum.

 

2. Which of the following cars will rust out the quickest when placed on blocks in your front yard?

 

     A) 66 Ford Fairlane

     B) 69 Chevrolet Chevelle

     C) 64 Pontiac GTO

 

3. If your uncle builds a still that operates at a capacity of 20 gallons of shine per hour, how many car radiators are necessary to condense the product?

 

4. A pulpwood cutter has a chain saw that operates at 2700 rpm. The density of the pine trees in a plot to be harvested is 470 per acre. The plot is 2.3 acres in size. The average tree diameter is 14 inches. How many Pabst Blue Ribbons will be consumed while cutting the trees?

 

5. If every old refrigerator in the state vented its charge of R-12 simultaneously, what would be the decrease in the ozone layer?

 

6. A front porch is constructed of 2x8 pine on 24-inch centers with a field rock foundation. The span is 8 feet and the porch length is 16 feet. The porch floor is 1 inch rough sawn pine. When the porch collapses, how many hound dogs will be killed?

 

7. A man owns a house and 3.7 acres of land in a hollow with an average slope of 15%. The man has 5 children. Can each of the children place a mobile home on the man's land?

 

8. A 2-ton pulpwood truck is overloaded and proceeding down a steep grade on a secondary road at 45 mph. The brakes fail. Given the average traffic loading of secondary roads, how many people will swerve to avoid the truck before it crashes at the bottom of the mountain?

 

For extra credit, how many of the vehicles that swerved will have mufflers and un-cracked windshields?

 

9. A Coal Mine operates as an NFPA Class 1, Division 2 Hazardous Area. The mine employs 120 miners per shift. A gas warning is issued at the beginning of 3rd shift. How many cartons of unfiltered Camels will be smoked during the shift?
