Learners answer eight questions about capacitors. Help pages are available.
Ziegler-Nichols Continuous Cycling Tuning Calculations
By Terry Bartelt
Learners examine the formulas that are used to determine the proper PID values to be entered into a controller using the Ziegler-Nichols Continuous Cycling Tuning Method.
The TI-86 Calculator: The Mode Function (Setting Up Your TI-86)
By Patrick Hoppe
Learners read how to set up a TI-86 calculator. The process is demonstrated and examples are given.
Pulse Train Fundamentals
Learners examine the fundamentals of a pulse train. Concepts such as time on, time off, duty cycle, period, and frequency are covered.
Parallel LC Circuit Tic-Tac-Toe 2
By playing a game of tic-tac-toe, a student can review what happens to currents and voltages throughout a parallel LC circuit when the applied frequency is increased above resonance.
In this interactive object, learners examine the physical facets that determine the value of a capacitor. A brief quiz completes the activity.
This learning activity presents information on how the type of material used for the dielectric of a capacitor affects the capacitor's value in farads.
The Electrostatic Charge of a Capacitor
In this animated activity, learners examine the conversion of electrical energy into an electrostatic charge within the dielectric material of a capacitor.
RC Time Constant
By Tim Tewalt, Patrick Hoppe
In this animated object, learners observe the voltage on a capacitor at various time constants when it either charges or discharges. Students then answer questions in the categories of Identify, Compare, and Compute.
Students read an introduction to capacitive reactance and view examples.
