In this animated object, learners examine different types of pneumatic actuators, cylinders, and motors.
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 interactive and animated object, learners examine why the piston of a hydraulic cylinder extends slower than it retracts. A brief quiz completes the activity.
This animated lesson shows how to calculate the amount of force generated by hydraulic cylinders.
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 object, learners read how to determine the force created by a hydraulic cylinder during extension and retraction. 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.
Learners study an animation of a spring-and diaphragm actuator controlling the opening of a flow valve.
