This learning object introduces the three approximations of a diode.
Gradation - Calculations
By Steve Whitmoyer
This learning object introduces the student to the calculations involved in a sieve analysis -- including percentage retained and percentage passed.
The TI-86 Scientific Calculator: Using the Arctangent Function
By Patrick Hoppe
This primer introduces the student to the correct method of using the arctangent function on a TI-86 calculator.
De-Energizing Time Constants of an RL Circuit
By Terry Bartelt
In this animated learning object, students examine current, voltage, and the magnetic field strength of a series RL circuit while it is de-energizing during five time constants. A quiz completes the activity.
Inductive Proximity Sensors
Learners examine the operation of an inductive proximity sensor in this animated object. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Testing a Diode
By Linda Reinke
In this interactive and animated object, learners practice testing a diode. They determine if a diode is good, open, or shorted.
The Zener Diode
In this animated object, learners examine the operation of a zener diode in the forward and reverse bias conditions. A quiz completes the activity.
Silicon Diode Basics
This primer introduces the student to the key terms and concepts associated with the silicon diode.
The Full-Wave Rectifier
Learners view the operation of a full-wave rectifier which has two diodes.
This primer introduces the student to the half-wave rectifier. Both the 1st and 2nd approximations are examined.
