Automotive Electrical Systems VAT-40 Charging System Test
In this interactive and animated object, learners examine the SUN VAT-40 battery starting and charging system tester. This learning object demonstrates the use of the tester in diagnosing conventional 12-volt automotive charging systems. It contains audio.
In this fourth part in a series, learners follow the steps of the “mathemagician” to examine three numerical curiosities: Be a Psychic by Predicting Birthdays, Predict a Card with Mind Reading, and Predict the Three Die Values Your Opponent Has Rolled. Learners will also study palindromic numbers and look at two alphametric puzzles.
Learners review Ohm's Law and then work 12 problems to help them apply the law to automotive electrical systems. In each of the problems, students are given two of the three variables (voltage, resistance, or current) and are asked to solve for the third.
