Students answer five questions concerning magnetism.
Vector Diagram for a Series RC Circuit
By Terry Bartelt
Learners view a vector diagram for a series RC circuit and read information concerning the voltage across each component, the total voltage, and the phase angle.
The Current Limiting Circuit
Learners examine the circuitry in a DC variable speed drive that protects the rectifier diodes and motor windings from being damaged due to excessive current.
Transfer Functions: The RL High Pass Filter
By Patrick Hoppe
Learners read how the RL high pass filter is developed. The transfer function is used in Excel to graph the Vout. The circuit is also simulated in Electronic WorkBench and the resulting Bode plot is compared to the graph from Excel.
Reversing the Rotation of DC Motors
By Terry Bartelt, Terry Fleischman
Learners view animations showing how to change the connections to cause a DC motor to reverse its rotation. A short quiz completes the activity.
AC Voltage Conversion Problems
By John Rosz, Terry Bartelt
Learners work problems to make conversions between RMS, average, peak, and peak-to-peak AC voltages.
AC Voltage Conversions
In this animated object, learners examine the formulas used to convert peak, RMS, average, and peak-to-peak AC voltages. A brief quiz completes the activity.
