What determines the amount of current that may pass through a person's body without causing damage?
the current quantity, type and path in addition the the length of time the current passes through the body. It also depends on the individual condition of his/her body.

actions should you take?
Drink large amounts of milk or water and take four tablespoons of vegetable oil if available
When using compressed air for blowing out fixtures and jigs, you should maintain pressure below what maximum value psi?
30 psi
What precaution should you take before removing
a fuse?
De-energize the circuit

True or false. Always connect an ammeter in parallel.
False, always connect in series.
True or false. Always connect an voltmeter in parallel.
True or False.
Never connec an ohmmeter to an energized circuit.
True or False.
When using an ohmmeter, select the scale that will result in a low-scale reading.
False; select a scale that will result in a mid-scale reading.
True or False.
Always leave the selector swich of a multi-meter in the resistance position when the meter is not in use.
False, leads may short together and discharge the internal battery. There is less chance of damaging the meter if you leave it on a high ac voltage setting or in the OFF position.
Why should you view a meter from directly in front?
The eliminate the parallax.
True or False.
You may try to measure resistance of a meter or circuit with a meter in it.
False, The high current required for ohmmeter operation may damage the meter.
Which lead of a meter should be connected first when making voltage measurements.
The ground lead
True or False
You should always used both hands when making voltage measurements.
False, use one hand whenever possible.
What type of test equipment should be used to check continuity?
True or False.
In an emergency, a flashlight can function as a continuity tester.
What is the most common cause of a grounded circuit?

What type of test equipment should be used to grounds?
Ohmmeter, you may also use a continuity checker.
What type of test equipment should be used to shorts?
What should be done before checking circuit voltage?
Chect the voltage of the power source to make sure normal voltage s being inputted to the circuit.
What is usually the first step in the troubleshooting process?
