Solar Contest - Part Three

Welcome to part the third of the solar quiz! Check the rules from part one here. Again, if you haven't participated quite yet, please do so!

Last time's answers:

3. The most commonly used element in a solar panel is silicon.

4. False! The surface of a solar panel is not cooler than the air around it when it is generating power. They actually get really hot, so you don't want to touch!

Today's questions are:

5. What type of current does a conventional solar panel produce?

  • Alternating current (AC)
  • Direct current (DC)
  • Photovoltaic current (PVC)
  • No current
  • None of the above

6. To test a solar panel before installing it on your roof, your friendly neighborhood Run on Sun solar installer will do what?

  • Light it on fire to see if it will burn
  • Put it in a pool to see if it will float
  • Measure its output using an ohm meter
  • Measure its output using a volt meter
  • None of the above

stephanieEnjoying the quiz, Julia! Here are my answers for questions 5 and 6: 5. A conventional solar panel generates DC (direct current). 6. My friendly Run on Sun installer would use a voltmeter to test my solar panel prior to its installation. Did not see the result of your Nano giveaway- who won the prize? Looking forward to continuing the quiz!!
