the product will give its heat up until it reaches the storage temperature. Heat travels from HOT to
COLD!. Is this comment True or False?


3.

Typically when doing load calculations on a cooler or freezer a safety factor of 40%
is applied to the total refrigeration load calculated? True or False

6.

To
maintain the desirable relative humidity in a general purpose cooler the general purpose cooler
involving meats, vegetables, and dairy products, it is common procedure to balance the low side to
the condensing unit @ a _____ temperature difference? This means the temperature difference between
the cooler air temperature and the refrigerant temperature in the evaporator should
be? a.  10F to
12F  c.  12F
16F  b.  17F to
22F  d.  7F9F     


7.

Transmission load is the amount of heat flow through wall, floors, and ceilings. The
heat gain is directly proportional to the temperature difference (TD) between the two sides of a
wall. The type and thickness of insulation used in wall construction, the outside area of the wall,
and the TD between the two sides of the wall are three factors that determine? a.  Wall
Load  c.  Cooler
Temperature  b.  Insulations Requirements  d.  Outside Temperature     


8.

“K” factor is the insulating value of any material rated by its thermal
conductivity. “U” factor is the overall coefficient of heat transfer, BTU per hour/per
square foot/per deg F. “X” is equal to the material thickness in inches. The following has
been established;
K = UX = X/R
U = K/X
=1/R
R = 1/U = X/K
Note: K= [ thermal conductivity, BTU per (hour)
(square foot) (F per inch of thickness)]
If the material
is cork or mineral wool rated at K =.30 and the thickness of the material is 10” what is the R
value of the material?

10.

Respiration for fresh fruits and vegetable is caused because they are alive. Even in
refrigeration storage they generate heat which is called the heat of
_________?
The temperature of the product depends on the respiration
rate. a.  Constipation  c.  Decomposition  b.  Respiration  d.  Perspiration     


11.

The
amount of heat that must be removed from one pound of a product to freeze this pound of product is
called? a.  Freezing
Point  c.  Latent heat of
confusion  b.  Ambient Point  d.  Latent heat of fusion     


12.

13.

The
product load of 2,000 pounds has a specific heat of 0.92 and a temperature drop of 50F. What is the
product load in BTU’s? a.  91,500  c.  94,000  b.  92,000  d.  95,500     


14.

width of 8’ and a length of 28’what would be the watts be?


15.

If a
cooler has a ceiling L of 28’ and Width of 8’ and a heat load of 72 BTU per 24 hours per
one square foot of surface, what would be the total heat gain through the ceiling? a.  16.128  c.  160,128  b.  16,128  d.  161,288
