Please call me Chlorophil7. I am 17 and a student in my second year of MCTC's HVAC program. I am excited about learning this trade! I have participated in Skills USA, and went to nationals this year. I am also a student member of RSES.
This semester I am taking a class on commercial A/C. Next week we have to have the answers to the questions for Unit 49 (Cooling Towers and Pumps) from our book, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, sixth edition.
Anyway, I was able to understand every question, except I found question 11 to be confusing. It asks: "Vortexing in a cooling tower occurs in the _____." Then it gives four possible answers.
A. inlet piping
B. basin of the tower
C. outlet of the piping
D. pump discharge
I have read the whole unit, and I know the answer is not C. or D, but I am confused if they mean the inlet of the pump by inlet piping. If they do, the the answer could be both A. and/or B.
Could someone please tell me which one should I choose, and why?
Thank you in advance.
