In this animated activity, users examine the causes of malfunctions in a hydraulic pressure-reducing valve and the problems that result. A short quiz completes the learning object.
Statics - Trig: Law of Sines: Calculations Using a TI-36X Calculator
By Steve Whitmoyer
In this animated object, learners use a TI-36X calculator to determine forces.
The UJT Relaxation Oscillator
By Terry Bartelt
In this animated object, students view diagrams of the UJT as it is used in the relaxation oscillator circuit. Waveforms illustrate how the circuit operates through several time periods.
Learners examine how air-to-open valves and air-to-close valves are used in different situations. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Electric Pencil Sharpener: Process Planning
By Amy Gau
Students view photos of an electric pencil sharpener as it is disassembled. The learning object is intended to prepare students to be able to identify the components and create an assembly process in a future activity.
How Pressure Changes Boiling Temperature
By Terry Bartelt, Terry Fleischman
Learners study the effect that pressure has on boiling temperatures. Once a liquid has reached a full boil, additional heat does not raise the liquid’s temperature; however, pressure can vary the boiling point of a liquid. 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.
Methods of Producing Electricity
In this learning activity you'll review the six different ways in which electricity is produced: chemical, friction, heat, light, magnetism, and pressure.
