In this learning activity you'll determine the total resistance in a DC parallel circuit.
Ignition System of a Combustion Engine
By Terry Bartelt
Students view the parts and movements of a combustion engine in this animated activity. Each part is described.
Instantaneous Current Calculations of a De-Energizing RL Circuit (Using a TI-36X Calculator)
Students view a sample of the keystrokes used on a TI-36X calculator to solve for the instantaneous current of a de-energizing circuit.
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.
The Zener Diode
In this animated object, learners examine the operation of a zener diode in the forward and reverse bias conditions. A quiz completes the activity.
Inductive Reactance Practice Problems
By Patrick Hoppe
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.
