In this animated activity, students view a step-by-step approach of how to connect an ammeter to a circuit. A brief quiz concludes the lesson.
Learners are introduced to primary and secondary batteries. Examples are given.
Students read the multivariable theorems and view the graphic depictions of the Boolean expressions.
Learners study the types of symbols used on a P&ID diagram to indicate instruments. A quiz completes the activity.
In this interactive object, learners practice their 3D visualization skills by identifying the correct isometric view of an object.
Learners examine pictorial drawings used in engineering including sectioned and exploded drawings. A sketching quiz is provided to help the learner create simple pictorial sketches by using orthographic views and an isometric template.
In this colorful and animated activity, learners study the operation of a needle valve and the operation of the needle valve with a check valve. A brief quiz completes the activity.
This interactive object is designed to help learners memorize schematic symbols used in hydraulic diagrams. Learners quiz themselves using electronic flashcards.
Learners view an animation of a counterbalance valve in operation and examine the valve’s internal structure.
In this animated object, learners examine the parts of a pneumatic power system, including the prime mover, compressor, and receiver tank, and how they function.
In this animated object, learners examine different types of pneumatic actuators, cylinders, and motors.
Students read how to calculate the size of a hydraulic cylinder that is required for a particular application. Mathematical formulas are provided.
In this interactive object, learners view a practical application of a PLC Timer-On function.
Students read about the characteristics of the ideal operational amplifier and compare them with the industry standard LM741C.
Learners view the operation of a full-wave rectifier which has two diodes.
Students examine the full-wave rectifier. They review appropriate formulas and examples of actual circuits.
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.
Learners examine the animated Timer-On Delay instruction and the Timer-Off Delay instruction of a PLC timer. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Students complete 10 practice problems. These deal with the determination of series current, zener current, and load current, and if the zener diode is operating in the breakdown region.
Learners read a description of torque and study the factors that cause its magnitude to change. A brief quiz completes the activity.
This learning activity uses a water pressure analogy to present the concept that voltage pressure is required to cause current flow.
Students work five practice problems to determine the Thevenin resistance of DC circuits.
In this animated object, learners examine three different types of multivibrators: astable, monostable, and bistable. A brief quiz completes the activity.
In this interactive object, learners view various components of gears and read descriptions of them. Learners then identify the location of each of these components in a drag-and-drop exercise.
In this learning activity you'll be introduced to the layout and operation of the solderless breadboard.
