Learners examine the differences and similarities between hydraulic and pneumatic systems.
Statics - Trig: Pythagorean Theorem Calculations Using a Casio fx-260
By Steve Whitmoyer
In this animated and interactive object, the learner uses a Casio fx-260 calculator to solve for the magnitude of the resultant and of one of the component forces in a right triangle.
By Terry Bartelt
This animated lesson shows the operation of timer-on and timer-off delay relays used in ladder circuit operate.
Noninverting Op Amp
In this animated object, learners examine the fundamental operation of a noninverting operational amplifier. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Selecting a Proper Single Phase Transformer
By Gary Lindell, Terry Bartelt
Students follow the steps that are required to select a transformer with the proper ratings. Voltage, frequency, current, and KVA are considered.
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.
Pascal's Law and Hydraulics
Using the principle of Pascal's Law, the learner will interpret the gauge readings in a hydraulic system to determine when the system is operating properly under various load conditions and when there is a defect.
The Hydraulic System
Examine the components of a hydraulic system.
The Hydraulic Pressure Switch
This animated lesson shows several ways that a hydraulic pressure switch, connected in a ladder circuit, causes the cylinder of a hydraulic circuit to perform various applications.
By Terry Bartelt, Stephen Schneider
In this animated activity, learners examine how cavitation occurs in a hydraulic pump. A video clip is included. Learners then test their knowledge in a brief quiz.
