I am using this object as a refresher course in calculating RPM and TORQUE.
This tool is easy to use and well explained.
In this interactive and animated object, learners examine the flow of electron current into and out of hot and neutral sockets during each alternation of an AC waveform. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Students read about the concept of true power and view examples of how it is dissipated as heat is provided.
The student studies the method to calculate complex power where the Vrms of a circuit is multiplied by the complex conjugate of the total circuit current. Several examples are given, along with the power triangle.
The learner will solve problems using the rule for multiplying powers that have the same base.
