  3. One with a viscosity of 60 centistokes
  4. Viscosity does not affect diffusion rate

  2. 800 degrees celsius
  3. 900 degrees celsius
  4. 800 degress farenheit

4.What is the benefit of using visible dye penetrant over a fluorescent penetrant?

  1. It is easier to remove the excess background
  2. Greater sensitivity is obtained
  3. No special lighting is required
  4. All the above are benefits

5.Flash point relates to which of the following?

  1. Temperature at which vapour spontaneously ignites
  2. Temperature at which liquid spontaneously ignites
  3. Temperature at which a liquid ignites in the presence of a small flame
  4. Temperature at which the vapours given off from a liquid ignite in the presence of a small flame

6.Which of the following is also known as a self -emulsifiable penetrant?

  1. Solvent removable
  2. Water washable
  3. Post emulsifiable
  4. Oil based penetrant

  4. Flash point

8.Which of the following is considered to be the most sensitive developer when used with a fluorescent post emulsifiable penetrant?

  1. Dry Powder
  2. Aqueous soluble
  3. Non aqueous wet
  4. Aqueous suspnedible
