Learners view an animation of a counterbalance valve in operation and examine the valve’s internal structure.
Discharging Time Constants of an RC Circuit (Screencast)
By Terry Bartelt
In this animated object, learners examine how current, voltage and the discharging capacitor of a series RC changes during 5 time constants. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Students examine the four factors that affect resistance of a wire: temperature, length, diameter, and the type of material from which it is made. A short quiz completes the activity.
Integral Contol Mode Application
In this animated object, learners examine the operation of a robot using the integral control mode to overcome a steady state.
Capacitor/Inductor: An Auto Analogy
By Roger Brown
Learners compare the experience of driving an auto to the circuit responses of RL (resistance/inductance) circuits and RC (resistance/capacitance) circuits. Acceleration, position, speed, and torque are graphed.
The Anatomy of the Heart
By Wendy Dusek
In this animated and interactive object, learners identify the valves and chambers of the heart.
Hydraulic Directional Control Valves
In this animated activity, learners examine the operation of hydraulic directional control valves and the internal components that divert the fluid.
The Spring-and-Diaphragm Actuator
Learners study an animation of a spring-and diaphragm actuator controlling the opening of a flow valve.
Learners examine how air-to-open valves and air-to-close valves are used in different situations. A brief quiz completes the activity.
