Learners read an introduction to the four basic types of force systems for a statically determinate condition.
The Basic Operation of a Diode
By Terry Bartelt
In this interactive and animated object, learners examine the operation of a semiconductor diode when it is forward and reverse biased. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Hydraulic Cylinder Speed
In this interactive and animated object, learners examine why the piston of a hydraulic cylinder extends slower than it retracts. A brief quiz completes the activity.
How Adding Parallel Branches Increases Total Current
In this animated object, learners follow an analogy of water flowing through pipes and valves to see how current increases in a parallel circuit as branches are added.
Pneumatic Air Conservation
By Terry Bartelt, Stephen Schneider
In this animated activity, learners read about air loss in a pneumatic system and ways to reduce the leakage. The object includes audio.
Statics - Trig: The Law of Cosines Using a TI-36X Calculator
By Steve Whitmoyer
Learners apply the Law of Cosines to determine forces using a TI-36X calculator in this animated object.
Statics - Trig: Law of Cosines Using a TI-86 Calculator
In this interactive and animated object, learners apply the Law of Cosines to determine forces using a TI-86 calculator.
Statics: Scalar vs. Vector
Learners read an introduction of scalar quantity and vector quantity and force. Examples are given.
Statics: Law of Transmissibility
Learners examine how a force may be considered to act at any point along its line of action as long as the magnitude and direction of the force remain unchanged. Numerical verification is provided.
Statics: Resultant Calculations via Graphical Method
In this interactive learning object, students calculate a resultant of multiple forces acting in a concurrent, coplanar condition.
