In this animated activity, users examine the causes of malfunctions in a hydraulic pressure-reducing valve and the problems that result. A short quiz completes the learning object.
Internal Circuits of a Capacitive Proximity Sensor
By Terry Bartelt
Learners examine the operation of various circuits that are internal to the capacitive proximity sensor.
By Tim Tewalt, Patrick Hoppe
In this animated object, learners drag resistors of the proper value into a series circuit to cause a required amount of current to flow. Seven review questions complete the activity.
Physics Concepts in Hydraulics
In this animated activity, learners view the following physics concepts in action: force, friction, horsepower, work, power, inefficiency, resistance, inertia, and energy.
Strength of Materials: The Centroid of a Quadrant
By Steve Whitmoyer
In this animated and interactive object, learners calculate the area and centroid of a quadrant.
Methods of Producing Electricity
In this learning activity you'll review the six different ways in which electricity is produced: chemical, friction, heat, light, magnetism, and pressure.
How Pressure Changes Boiling Temperature
By Terry Bartelt, Terry Fleischman
Learners study the effect that pressure has on boiling temperatures. Once a liquid has reached a full boil, additional heat does not raise the liquid’s temperature; however, pressure can vary the boiling point of a liquid. A brief quiz completes the activity.
The Multiplication of Force by a Hydraulic System
In this animated and interactive object, learners examine a depiction of how force is multiplied by a larger cylinder when pressure from a pump is applied to a smaller cylinder. A short quiz completes the activity.
Pascal's Law and Hydraulics
Using the principle of Pascal's Law, the learner will interpret the gauge readings in a hydraulic system to determine when the system is operating properly under various load conditions and when there is a defect.
The Hydraulic System
Examine the components of a hydraulic system.
