Problem Solving: Using a Flow Chart
You will learn how to us a flow chart to describe the process actions and decisions to find a solution.
By Terry Bartelt, Terry Fleischman
In this animated activity, learners study how the magnetic field of an armature can distort the DC motor's main magnetic field. A brief quiz completes the object.
Using an Edge Finder
The learner will use an edge finder to locate the edge of a workpiece.
In this animated object, learners study how the internal parts of an AC synchronous motor interact with magnetic fields to cause rotation. A short quiz completes the activity.
The Induction Motor Slip
In this animated object, learners examine how the rotation of an induction AC motor's armature slips behind the synchronous rotational speed of the stator's field to create magnetic fields. These fields interact and produce torque. A quiz completes the activity.
