Students read a step-by-step approach on how to connect a voltmeter to a circuit when making a measurement.
The Torque of an Induction Motor
By Terry Fleischman
The learner will examine how torque is developed in an induction motor.
Ohm's Law: Current
By Tim Tewalt, Patrick Hoppe
Learners study animated rheostat settings that show how current flow is inversely proportional to resistance. Ten review questions complete the learning object.
By Patrick Hoppe
Learners follow the steps for reducing all of the elements of a complex circuit to a single current source and a single source resistance to create a simple circuit. Several examples are given for dc circuits. The conversion between Thevenin and Norton is also presented.
Hydraulic Schematic Symbol Flashcards
By John Rosz
This interactive object is designed to help learners memorize schematic symbols used in hydraulic diagrams. Learners quiz themselves using electronic flashcards.
Electrical Opens and Shorts
By Terry Bartelt, David Schwid
In this animated activity, learners examine the difference between opens and shorts in an electrical circuit. A brief quiz completes the object.
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.
