This is best answer by engineering students during viva.

>-- This one is for those who had nightmares during their Engineering
Viva's (EEEs and ECEs). They bring back fond memories for those who care
to smile at the past…

**************************************************************************************************************
Interviewer: Why is a thicker conductor necessary to carry a current in
A.C.as compared to D.C. ?
Candidate : An AC current goes up and down (drawing a sinusoid) and
requires more space inside the wire, so the wire has to be thicker.

************************************************************************************
External (to student) : "Why does a capacitor block DC but allow AC To
pass through ?
Student: See, a capacitor is like this ---| |--- , OK. DC comes
straight, like this ----------, and the capacitor stops it. But AC,goes UP,
DOWN, UP DOWN and jumps right over the capacitor!" -------------------
good one : - )

************************************************************************************
Interviewer: How will you tell if that wall outlet carries AC or DC?
Candidate: I will put my finger in. If it is pushed away, it is AC. If
it gets stuck, it was DC.

************************************************************************************
Interviewer: H! ow will you reverse direction of an Induction motor?
Candidate: I will remove the four bolts at the x-ud, turn the motor
around, and put back the bolts.

************************************************************************************
Interviewer: How do you start a synchronous motor?
Candidate: Vrrrrrrrmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm (in rising pitch)
Interviewer: Stop! Stop!
Candidate: rrrrrrrmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm (in falling pitch)

************************************************************************************
Examiner: "What is a step-up transformer?"
Student: "A transformer that is put on top of electric poles."
Examiner (smiling): "And then what is a step-down transformer?"
Student (hesitantly):"Uh - A transformer that is put in the x-udment or
in a pit?"
Examiner (pouncing): "Then what do you call a transformer that is
installed on the ground?"
(Student knows he is caught-can't answer )
Examiner (impatiently): "Well?"
Student (triumphantly): "A stepless transformer, sir!"

**************************************************************************************************************

************************************************************************************
Engineers at work:

Assignments solved by one and then carry out mass transfer operations
throughout the class

************************************************************************************
The most important machine for Engineers:

Xerox Machine (Without which assignment Completion couldn't be
possible)

************************************************************************************
Top two Engineering Rumours:

Did you hear the results are being put up today at 5:30pm
Did you hear the exams are postponed by two weeks

************************************************************************************
Common Engineering Dialogues after a paper:

'What is this man, 60% o f the paper was out of the syllabus'
'This was the worst paper set in the entire
engineering history' 'I am failing'

hahahhahaha................that was so funny

i cant believe u guys still using the same classic once

hahahahaa..................z

they said , the most stupid students in the world are engineering

students.........u know why

because they can fix any thing except thier minds

i hope u r not one of them........
