# Petroleum Exam Questions :

in this post you will find a collection of questions asked in Baker Hughes Interview:

1. Voltage of normal dry cell battery used for baby toys, clock… etc is: (….).

– (1.5 volts)

– Spark plugs – Compression – Expansion – Glow plug

3. Speed of light is: (….) m/sec.

– c = 3 X 108 m/s

4. Rock types are: (…,…., and…).

1- Igneous. 2- Sedimentary. 3 –Metamorphic.

5. Atom can be defined as: (….)

– The atom is a basic unit of matter that consists of a dense central nucleus surrounded by a cloud of negatively charged electrons. The atomic nucleus contains a mix of positively charged protons and electrically neutral neutrons (except in the case of hydrogen-1, which is the only stable nuclide with no neutrons). The electrons of an atom are bound to the nucleus by the electromagnetic force.

6. Isotope can be defined as: (….)

– An isotopein chemistry is an Atoms with the same number of protons, but differing numbers of neutrons. Isotopes are different forms of a single element.

Isotope geochemistry is an aspect of geology based upon study of the relative and absolute concentrations of the elements and their isotopes in the Earth. Variations in the abundance of these isotopes, typically measured with an isotope ratio mass spectrometer or an accelerator mass spectrometer, can reveal information about the age of a rock or the source of air or water. Isotope ratios can even shed light on chemical processes in the atmosphere. Broadly, the field of isotope geochemistry is divided into two branches: stable and radiogenic isotope geochemistry.

7. Avogadro’s constant is: (….)

– Avogadro’s Constant = 6.0221415 × 1023 mol-1 is defined as the ratio of the number of constituent particles N (usually atoms or molecules) in a sample to the amount of substance n (unit mole) through the relationship NA = N/n.[1] Thus, it is the proportionality factor that relates the molar mass of an entity, i.e., the mass per amount of substance, to the mass of said entity.[2]The Avogadro constant expresses the number of elementary entities per mole of substance and it has the value 6.02214129(27)×1023 mol−1.*2+*3+*4+Changes in the SI units are proposed that will change the constant to exactly 6.02214X×1023 when it is expressed in the unit mol−1.

8. A pencil lead composed mainly of:(….)

– Pencil lead is made out of Graphite which is a lightweight substance composed mainly of carbon and clay.

9. Approximate temperature of absolute zero in degree centigrade is:(….).

– (Absolute zero is the lowest possible temperature where nothing could be colder, and no heat energy remains in a substance. absolute zero is defined as precisely 0 K on the Kelvin scale and −273.15 on the Celsius (centigrade) scale and −459.67 degrees on the Fahrenheit scale.)

10. S.I unit of electrical resistivity is: (….)

– Electrical resistivity (also known as resistivity, specific electrical resistance, or volume resistivity) The SI unit of electrical resistivity is the ohm⋅metre (Ω⋅m). It is commonly represented by the Greek letter ρ (rho).

11. S.I unit of current is: (….)

– Ampere.

12. S.I unit of power is: (….)

-The SI unit of power is the Watts (W).

13. The three colors used to make a color TV picture are:(….,…and….)

– red, green, and blue.

14. Chemical composition of ozone: (….)

– O3, or tri-oxygen.

15. The closest planet to the sun: (….)

– The planet Mercury.

16. The mass of the electron is equal to the mass of the neutron.(….)

– An electron has a mass that is approximately 1/1836 that of the proton.

Mass of neutrons are greater than mass of electrons 1840 times

17. Boiling point of water in degree centigrade = (….)

– 100°C, 212°F or 373.15 Kelvin.

18. Boiling point of water in Fahrenheit = (….)

– (212 °F) at sea level.

19. Freezing point of water in degree centigrade = (….)

– 0º is the freezing point of water in Celsius.

20. Freezing point of water in Fahrenheit = (….)

-32 °F Tc = (5/9)*(Tf-32); Tf = (9/5)*(Tc+32); Tc = temperature in degrees Celsius, Tf = temperature in degrees Fahrenheit.

21. Seconds in 24 hours = (….)
