In this learning activity you'll determine the total resistance in a DC parallel circuit.
Power Calculations in a Series/Parallel Circuit
By Terry Bartelt
In this learning activity you'll explore various ways to calculate the power consumed in a series/parallel circuit.
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.
Series Resistance Practice Problems
By Patrick Hoppe
Students work practice problems to calculate the total resistance of a circuit. Feedback is provided.
Learners examine an animated motion-controlled robotic arm and observe the operation of a PID (Proportional-Integral-Derivative) control that makes movements quickly without overshooting or having a steady-state error. This activity has audio content.
Inductive Reactance Practice Problems
Students solve problems on the determination of total inductive reactance of series-parallel inductors.
Capacitive Reactance Practice Problems
Students solve problems on the determination of total capacitive reactance of series-parallel capacitors.
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.
Parallel LC Circuit Tic-Tac-Toe 2
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.
Vector Diagram for a Parallel RL Circuit
Learners read about the vector diagram for a parallel RL circuit. This animated lesson presents information on current flow through each branch, total current, and phase angle.
