Unformatted text preview: Study Guide for Test 3 Fall 2010 Test format: • on Scantron (I will supply the scantron sheets) • 50 questions, in multiple choice, T/F, or possibly matching questions • Bring a #2 pencil Lectures/Chapters covered : Lectures 12-16 (Chapters 6 and 7 in the text). Source of questions: The test will come from • the Lecture Notes, based on the in-class questions in this document. As explained in class, the in-class questions will be changed for the text (from true to false, etc. but they reflect the terms and concepts you should know) • the “on your own” questions.. • the “not in text” notes you took in class (the “red” notes). Study tips: • Study/read over your class notes. For some students it will be helpful to review the same concepts in the textbook. • Then look at the questions below and see if you can answer them. Do you know why a statement isn’t true? Do you precisely the definition of a term? Remember, the definition for one term, such as elevation, may be used in a T/F paired wrongly with the definition of another term, such as Often I will take a group of T/F questions in the notes and turn them into a multiple choice question, changing the items that were true or false. Often a multiple choice question will ask “Which is FALSE?” Therefore you must understand the material in the questions, don’t just memorize the answers to the questions the way they are, because true statement will be changed to false, etc. For example, if the answer is C in a multiple choice question in the notes, another answer will be correct on the test.

Effects on land? Page 152: Do long-range artillery shells and guided missiles exhibit small amounts of deflection? Are water movements down a drain large enough to be noticeably affected by the Coriolis force? Page 164: What are three basic settings that favor wind resources? The winds of which three states could meet all US electrical needs? Page 165: Wind generated energy resources are the fastest growing energy technology in terms of new capacity. How much did total world capacity grow from 2003-2006? A. 10% B. 30% C. 50% D. 70% According to the text, most of the jobs and about 80% of the wind power industry are focused in what continent? 10,000 MW of wind-generation capacity reduces carbon dioxide emission by: ________________ if it replaces coal.
