Students read an introduction to inductive reactance and view examples.
Strength of Materials: The Centroid of a Quadrant
By Steve Whitmoyer
In this animated and interactive object, learners calculate the area and centroid of a quadrant.
Excel: Spreadsheet Hints
By Patrick Hoppe
Learners read how to create a spreadsheet to determine the voltage drop across a resistor in an AC circuit. The complex functions explained in other learning objects are used in this example.
Sensitivity Adjustments of a Capacitive Sensor
By Terry Bartelt
In this animated object, learners study the effects of making sensitivity adjustments to a capacitive sensor.
Learners read about the concepts of true power, reactive power, and apparent power, and are introduced to the power factor formula. A short quiz completes the activity.
Inductive Reactance Practice Problems
Students solve problems on the determination of total inductive reactance of series-parallel inductors.
Series RL Circuit Vector and Circuit Analyzer
By James Bourassa, John Rosz
Learners alter circuit variables and view how these changes affect circuit voltage, current, reactance, impedance, and phase angle.
Parallel RL Circuit Vector and Circuit Analyzer
Capacitive Reactance Practice Problems
Students solve problems on the determination of total capacitive reactance of series-parallel capacitors.
Inductive Reactance Demonstration 1
Learners view video clips showing how coiled wire provides more resistance to AC current flow than uncoiled wire.
