Causes and Risk Factors of Cerebral Vascular Accidents
In this interactive object, the learner examines the causes, symptoms, and risk factors associated with a stroke. The terms "thrombus," "emboli," and "hemorrhage" are defined. A self-assessment of risk factors completes the activity.
In this animated object, learners examine the factors that determine how well a capacitive proximity sensor can detect an object. Those factors include size, position, and the materials from which the target is made. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Op Amp Fundamentals: The Transconductance Amplifier
Students read an introduction to the transconductance amplifier. They also view formulas for voltage-to-current conversion, closed-loop input, and output impedance. An example of how R1 controls the conversion factor is given.
Learners consider the factors that determine how well an inductive proximity sensor can detect an object. Those factors are size, position, and the material from which the target is made. A brief quiz completes the activity.
