Please log in to take the exam.
1
Liquefied gases are gases which can become liquids at normal temperatures when they are inside cylinders under pressure.
2
Non-liquefied gases are also known as compressed, pressurized or permanent gases.
3
Acetylene is chemically very stable.
4
Acetylene in solution is stable.
5
All compressed gases are hazardous because of the high pressures inside the cylinders.
6
Gas can flow rapidly from an open or leaking cylinder only at high pressure.
7
The auto-ignition (or ignition) temperature of a gas is the minimum temperature at which the gas self-ignites without any obvious ignition sources
8
Many flammable compressed gases are heavier than air.
9
Do not store flammable gases next to an exit or near oxygen cylinders.
10
All valves should be greased before use.
