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.
Learners examine the function of the analog wattmeter to measure true power, how it is connected in a circuit, and how the internal components develop a measurement. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Learners follow procedures for measuring resistance using an analog ohmmeter. They examine the use of the Function Switch and the Range Switch and practice reading a non-linear scale. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Learners observe how a blood drop in flight continually accelerates and increases in velocity over time. As the drop falls, resistance accumulates. The increase in stain diameter relative to distance of a typical 50 ml drop of blood is represented here. This activity has audio content.
