About the Mechanical Aptitude Test

Mechanical aptitude tests are usually used by employers to recruit candidates in engineering and fields related to technical knowledge. Candidates are assessed based on how well they can solve and comprehend a variety of mechanical, technical, and engineering principles. These tests allow companies to evaluate a candidate's ability to perform in a real workplace environment.

It is important to know that prior experience and knowledge are required to access these exams. Keep in mind that our free mechanical aptitude test questions are just a sample of some of the mechanical tests that we offer, such as the Bennett Mechanical Comprehension Test, Wiesen Test of Mechanical Aptitude, ASVAB, and Ramsay Test.

Free Mechanical Aptitude Test Sample Questions

Question

The rectangle pivots about the point of contact with the floor. The further the pole is away from the pivot point, the less force it needs to apply to achieve the same torque (the torque needed to keep the rectangle static). Thus, Pole 2, the pole that is further away from the point of contact with the floor applies less force on the rectangle. This is essentially the Law of the Lever.

By Newton's 3rd Law, the rectangle applies less force on Pole 2 as well.

Therefore, the answer is 1.

 

Question

 

The correct answer is (B).

Copper is one of the most commonly used conductors. Pure water is water containing no dissolved substance. Water itself is not conductive; rather, it is the ions in electrolytes that conduct electricity. Thus, pure water is not a good conductor. Wood, plastic, and glass are all considered good insulators, not conductors.

Question

 

The difference between to two fishermen is the gripping point in which they hold the rod.

Fisherman 1 holds the rod at the bottom end, and therefore the total weight he must pull is greater: the fish and the entire length of the rod.

Fisherman 2 holds the rod in the middle, and therefore the total weight he must pull is smaller: the fish and only half of the rod's length. Moreover, the weight of the rod below the gripping point will assist in the pulling of the fish.

Therefore, the correct answer is 1.
