Students read an introduction to capacitive reactance and view examples.
Parallel RC Circuit Practice Problems
By James Bourassa, John Rosz
In this interactive object, students calculate capacitive reactance, impedance, current, and power in parallel RC circuits.
Learners apply lever ratios to calculate the mechanical advantage in basic mechanisms.
By Patrick Hoppe
Students look at the power dissipated by a single gate and by an IC. The concept of average current draw is introduced and examples are provided.
Volts Per Hertz Ratio
By Terry Bartelt
In this animated and interactive object, learners examine why the voltage produced by an AC drive must be increased when its frequency is increased due to inductive reactance.
Series RC Circuit Vector and Circuit Analyzer
In this teaching and learning aid, the user can alter circuit variables and view how these changes affect circuit voltage, current, reactance, impedance, and phase angle.
Inductive Reactance Practice Problems
Students solve problems on the determination of total inductive reactance of series-parallel inductors.
Parallel RC Circuit Vector and Circuit Analyzer
Learners alter circuit variables and view how these changes affect circuit voltage, current, reactance, impedance, and phase angle.
In this interactive object, learners examine the physical facets that determine the value of a capacitor. A brief quiz completes the activity.
This learning activity presents information on how the type of material used for the dielectric of a capacitor affects the capacitor's value in farads.
