Learners apply lever ratios to calculate the mechanical advantage in basic mechanisms.
Elements of Machine Vision
By Craig Hemken
Learners examine the basic elements of a machine vision system. A short quiz completes the activity.
Waveforms of an SCR Circuit
By Terry Bartelt
Learners view waveforms at various locations of an SCR circuit controlling the intensity a light bulb. The waveforms are shown when the light is dim, at medium brightness, and at full brightness. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Parallel Circuit Analysis Practice Problems: Circuit #5
By Patrick Hoppe
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 by each resistor.
Basic DC Electrical Motor Construction
Learners examine the internal parts of a DC electrical motor and then text their knowledge in a drag-and-drop exercise.
Identifying Lever Classes
By James Bourassa
In this interactive object, learners read an introduction to Class 1, Class 2, and Class 3 levers and then take a quiz.
Calculating Horsepower, RPM, and Torque
By James Bourassa, John Rosz
In this animated and interactive object, learners examine the formula for horsepower and work practice problems.
Orthographic Projection #1
By Glenn Sokolowski
In this interactive and animated object, learners examine orthographic projection and the Glass Box Theory. Front, side, and top view development is demonstrated with pictorial views of each object to help develop 2D to 3D visualization skills.
Brain Exercise: Visualization #1
In this interactive object, learners practice their 3D visualization skills by identifying the correct isometric view of an object. Front, side, and top orthographic views are shown.
Brain Exercise: Visualization #3
Learners develop 3D visualization skills by examining front, side, and top orthographic views of objects. Using this information, students select the corresponding isometric view of each object.
