In this highly interactive object, learners associate basic line types and terms with engineering drawing geometry. A quiz completes the activity.
Absolute Optical Encoders
By Terry Bartelt
The operation and characteristics of an absolute optical encoder used in automation applications are presented.
The TI-83 Plus Calculator: Using Complex Numbers
By Patrick Hoppe
This primer introduces the student to the correct method of entering complex numbers in both rectangular and polar form.
Hydraulic Mechanical Force
This animated lesson shows how to calculate the amount of force generated by hydraulic cylinders.
Parallel LC Circuit Tic-Tac-Toe 1
By playing a game of tic-tac-toe, a student can review what happens to currents and voltages throughout a parallel LC circuit when the applied frequency increases from 0 Hz toward resonance.
Voltmeter Circuit Connections
Students read a step-by-step approach on how to connect a voltmeter to a circuit when making a measurement.
Analog Ammeter Operation
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.
Basic Symbols Used in Engineering Drawings
By Kelly Curran, Glenn Sokolowski
Learners examine the drawing symbols used for counterbore, countersink, spotface, radius, diameter, and depth. In the quiz that completes the activity, they associate these symbols with machining applications.
Basic Types of Dimensioning Used in Engineering Drawings
Learners examine the basic types of dimensioning including unidirectional and aligned systems, and linear, aligned, angled, arrowless, chain, datum, chart, tabular, radius, diameter, typical, and reference dimensions.
