Vacuums and Pumps

This quiz was created for the University of Houston Advanced Physics Laboratory Seminar Class of 2007. This will be used as a homework grade after the student presentation on vacuum pumps and cryogenics.

The quiz consists of 20 questions and 1 bonus all worth 5 points. All questions are either multiple choice or true/false. Each question is designed to test your attention to details and deductive reasoning skills.
