Students read about the ideal versions of the four common filters (low-pass, high-pass, bandpass, and notch), and view graphical representations of the filters' frequency characteristics.

Learners read how the transfer function for a RC high pass filter is developed. The transfer function is used in Excel to graph the Vout. The circuit is also simulated in Electronic WorkBench and the resulting Bode plot is compared to the graph from Excel.

Students read how the transfer function for a RC low pass filter is developed. The transfer function is used in Excel to graph the Vout. The circuit is also simulated in Electronic WorkBench and the resulting Bode plot is compared to the graph from Excel.

Transfer Functions: The RL High Pass Filter With Bode Plot

Learners read how the transfer function for a RL high pass filter is developed. The transfer function is used in Excel to graph the Vout. The circuit is also simulated in Electronic WorkBench, and the resulting Bode plot is compared to the graph from Excel.

In this interactive object, learners set up a shear, enter the back gauge dimension, and prepare to shear metal in a simulation of the Adira Hydraulic Shear.

Op Amp Fundamentals: The Transconductance Amplifier

Students read an introduction to the transconductance amplifier. They also view formulas for voltage-to-current conversion, closed-loop input, and output impedance. An example of how R1 controls the conversion factor is given.

In this animated activity, students view the plastic pellets in a profile extrusion machine being melted as the temperature of the heating elements is elevated by a time proportioning control system.

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 is increased above resonance.

Instantaneous Voltage Calculations of a Discharging RC Circuit (Using a TI-30XIIS Calculator)

In this animated object, learners view the keystrokes on a TI-30XIIS calculator that are required to solve for the instantaneous voltage of a discharging RC circuit.

Users calculate the tonnage required to punch holes in a specific base metal. The formula to be used is provided along with the tensile strength for various metals. A calculator is required.
