In this interactive and animated object, learners examine the flow of electron current into and out of hot and neutral sockets during each alternation of an AC waveform. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Students examine the procedure to measure current with an analog ammeter. The use of Function and Range switches is explored along with reading the needle position on the meter scale. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Learners follow procedures for measuring resistance using an analog ohmmeter. They examine the use of the Function Switch and the Range Switch and practice reading a non-linear scale. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Learners review Ohm's Law and then work 12 problems to help them apply the law to automotive electrical systems. In each of the problems, students are given two of the three variables (voltage, resistance, or current) and are asked to solve for the third.
