In a series of three interactive exercises, learners explore the relationship between process cycle time and defect detection, and between process cyle time and smaller batch sizes. The techniques of lean/JIT are applied to achieve the continuous improvement (kaizen) goal of reducing inventory by pursuing one-piece flow.
Learners examine graphs and read that the heat of fusion is the heat energy absorbed by one mole of solid as it is converted to liquid, while the heat of vaporization is the heat energy absorbed by one mole of liquid as it is converted to gas.
Learners observe that the volume of one mole of any gas is 22.4 L at standard temperature and pressure. An illustration shows that only the mass of the molar volume differs with the identity of the gas.
In this interactive learning object, students answer multiple choice questions about medications, nursing implications, and client outcomes of gastrointestinal management. A correct answer gives the learner a square on a Tic-Tac-Toe board. The student may play against the computer or with one other person.
The Effect of Temperature on the Vapor Pressure of a Liquid
Learners examine how vapor pressure is calculated. The vapor pressure of a liquid increases with increasing temperature. If the heat of vaporization and the vapor pressure at one temperature are known, the vapor pressure at a second temperature can be calculated.
Learners answer questions about medication from a game board with the headings "Pituitary," "Thyroid," and "Adrenal." Up to three people can play at one time. Contestants "buzz in" their answers to accumulate points.
