Students read a step-by-step approach on how to connect a voltmeter to a circuit when making a measurement.
Using an Edge Finder
By Kelly Curran
The learner will use an edge finder to locate the edge of a workpiece.
Transistor Fundamentals: Base-Biased NPN Transistor
By Patrick Hoppe
Students view a dc analysis of a base-biased NPN transistor.
Statics: Resultant Calculations via Tabular Method
By Steve Whitmoyer
The learner calculates the resultant of multiple forces acting in a concurrent, coplanar load condition.
Transistor Fundamentals: Junction Field Effect Transistor (JFET)
Students read about the common characteristics of the Junction Field Effect Transistor. They also explore the schematic symbols and the basic operation of the JFET.
Analog Ammeter Operation
By Terry Bartelt
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 Types of Lines Used in Engineering Drawings
By Kelly Curran, Glenn Sokolowski
In this highly interactive object, learners associate basic line types and terms with engineering drawing geometry. A quiz completes the activity.
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.
Orthographic Projection #1
By Glenn Sokolowski
In this interactive and animated object, learners examine orthographic projection and the Glass Box Theory. Front, side, and top view development is demonstrated with pictorial views of each object to help develop 2D to 3D visualization skills.
Brain Exercise: Visualization #1
In this interactive object, learners practice their 3D visualization skills by identifying the correct isometric view of an object. Front, side, and top orthographic views are shown.
