222- During which of the following conditions of flight will the blade pitch angle of a constant speed propeller be the greatest ? a) Approach to landing. b) Climb following takeoff. * c) High speed, high altitude cruising flight. d) Takeoff from sea level. 223- The CTM (centrifugal twisting moment) of an operating propeller tends to: a) Increase the pitch angle. * b) Reduce the pitch angle. c) Bend the blades in the direction of rotation. d) Bend the blades rearward in the line of flight. 224- Hydromatic propeller pitch change gear preload may be adjusted by : a) Moving the vernire preload lock plate clockwise to increase preload and anticlockwise to reduce preload . b) Adjusting the stop plate that limits the movement of the movable cam within The stationary cam . c) Varying the spider shim thickness used between the spider shim plate and the blade bushing face . * d) Varying the thickness of the shims between the fixed cam base and the dome barrel shelf . 225- The blade angle of a fixed pitch propeller: a) Is greatest at the tip. b) Is constant from the hub to the tip. * c) Is smallest at the tip. d) Increases in proportion to the distance each section is from the hub. 226- For takeoff, a constant speed propeller is normally set in the: a) High pitch, high RPM position. b) Low pitch, low RPM position. c) High pitch, low RPM position. * d) Low pitch, high RPM position. 227- Which of the following defects is cause for rejection of wood propellers? a) Solder missing from screw heads securing metal tipping. * b) An oversize hub or bolt, or elongated bolt holes. c) No moisture drain holes in metal tipping. d) No protective coating on propeller. 228- Why is it important that nicks in the leading edge of aluminum alloy blades be removed as soon as possible ? a) To localize vibratory stress. b) Horizontal balance purposes. c) To improve the aerodynamic characteristics of the blades. * d) To eliminate the condition where fatigue cracks can start.
