In this animated object, learners examine different types of pneumatic actuators, cylinders, and motors.
In this interactive object, learners read how to determine the force created by a hydraulic cylinder during extension and retraction. A brief quiz completes the activity.
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.
In this animated and interactive object, learners examine the basic parts and the linear movement of a hydraulic cylinder. A brief quiz completes the activity.
In this interactive and animated object, learners examine why the piston of a hydraulic cylinder extends slower than it retracts. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Students read how to calculate the size of a hydraulic cylinder that is required for a particular application. Mathematical formulas are provided.
This animated lesson shows how to calculate the amount of force generated by hydraulic cylinders.
Learners study an animation of a spring-and diaphragm actuator controlling the opening of a flow valve.
