In this animated activity, a drill-and-clamp machine is used to show an application of a pressure-reducing valve. Recommendations on how to properly make pressure adjustments are also provided.
Superposition Theorem with Complex Numbers
By Patrick Hoppe
Students read an explanation of "superposition" as a technique for ac circuit analysis. Complex numbers are used.
Total Impedance for Series-Parallel Circuits Using Complex Numbers
Students follow the steps for finding the total impedance for a series-parallel circuit. Several examples are given.
Pneumatic Air Conservation
By Terry Bartelt, Stephen Schneider
In this animated activity, learners read about air loss in a pneumatic system and ways to reduce the leakage. The object includes audio.
Photoelectric Reciprocation Circuits
By Terry Bartelt
This animated lesson shows how a photoelectric sensor, connected to a ladder circuit, causes the cylinder of a hydraulic circuit to extend and retract.
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.
In this animated object, learners examine how PLC up/down-counters are used to control an automated parking lot gate.
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.
In this animated object, learners read about hydrostatic pressure and observe how it is used to measure the level of a material in a container.
