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.
The Mathematical Expression of an AC Sine Wave As a Function of Time: Practice Problems
By Patrick Hoppe
Students view the mathematical expression of a sinusoidal waveform with respect to time (t) and solve five problems. The answers are provided so students may check their work.
Series Circuit Analysis Practice Problems: Circuit #6
In this interactive object, learners solve for total resistance and current, the current through each resistor, the voltage across each resistor, and the power dissipated.
This primer introduces the student to the half-wave rectifier. Both the 1st and 2nd approximations are examined.
By Terry Bartelt
Learners examine the internal components of an optical encoder used in automated manufacturing applications. A brief quiz completes the animated activity.
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.
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.
