In the MMA welding process, which of the following is most likely to be caused by a welder with a poor technique? a. b. c. d. Deep weld craters/crater cracks. Copper inclusions Hydrogen cracks All of the above.

14.

Root concavity is caused by: a. b. c. d. Excessive back purge pressure and entrapped gas. Excessive back purge pressure and very high heat inputs. Excessive root grinding and a slow travel speed. Excessive root grinding and excessive back purge pressure.
