A
Water removal will stay the same.
B
Water removal will become easier.
C
Water removal will become more difficult.
Question 13 Explanation: 
Water removal will become more difficult if the vacuum pump that is used is too big.
Question 14
Please mark the element that will reduce the stability of the ozone depletion organic refrigerant compounds:
A
Bromine
B
Hydrogen
C
Chlorine
D
All of the above
Question 14 Explanation: 
Hydrogen reduces the stability of the ozone and results in decomposition at a lower temperature.
Question 15
What size of diameter should the liquid line have to minimize the total refrigerant pressure drop over the length of the liquid line and what size to avoid refrigerant flash?
A
It must be as small as possible to minimize the total refrigerant pressure drop over the length of the liquid line and as small as possible to avoid refrigerant flash.
B
It must be as large as possible to minimize the total refrigerant pressure drop over the length of the liquid line and as small as possible to avoid refrigerant flash.
C
It must be as small as possible to minimize the total refrigerant pressure drop over the length of the liquid line and as large as possible to avoid refrigerant flash.
D
It must be as large as possible to minimize the total refrigerant pressure drop over the length of the liquid line and as large as possible to avoid refrigerant flash.
Question 15 Explanation: 
The Diameter of the liquid line must be as large as possible to minimize the total refrigerant pressure drop over the length of the liquid line and as small as possible to avoid refrigerant flash.
Question 16
