Measuring Current in a Parallel Circuit
By Terry Bartelt
In this interactive learning object, students view the ammeter connections for measuring currents in a parallel circuit with three branches on an energy concepts lab board. A brief quiz completes the activity.
The Multiplication of Force by a Hydraulic System
In this animated and interactive object, learners examine a depiction of how force is multiplied by a larger cylinder when pressure from a pump is applied to a smaller cylinder. A short quiz completes the activity.
Pascal's Law and Hydraulics
Using the principle of Pascal's Law, the learner will interpret the gauge readings in a hydraulic system to determine when the system is operating properly under various load conditions and when there is a defect.
The Hydraulic System
Examine the components of a hydraulic system.
