In this learning activity you'll determine the total resistance in a DC parallel circuit.
The TI-86 Scientific Calculator: The Editing Functions
By Patrick Hoppe
Students read about the ENTRY, INS, and DEL keys and view a demonstration of how to edit and insert characters and recall previous entries.
Power Law: The Relationship of Voltage, Current, and Watts
Learners examine three formulas than can be used to find dc power. Examples are given.
Kirchhoff's Current Law
By Tim Tewalt, Patrick Hoppe
Learners observe how branch current values in parallel circuits are affected when different values are used. They test their knowledge by answering 11 review questions.
Dynamic Braking Circuits
By Terry Bartelt
In this animated activity, learners examine the operation of a dynamic braking circuit used to quickly stop a motor.
Inductive Reactance Practice Problems
Students solve problems on the determination of total inductive reactance of series-parallel inductors.
Capacitive Reactance Practice Problems
Students solve problems on the determination of total capacitive reactance of series-parallel capacitors.
Parallel LC Circuit Tic-Tac-Toe 1
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 increases from 0 Hz toward resonance.
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.
Voltage and Current Amplitudes in a Parallel LC Circuit
In this interactive object, learners examine how voltages and currents vary in a parallel LC circuit as the applied frequency changes.
Cylinders: Basic Terminology
You'll practice defining terms relating to cylinders and identifying parts of cylinders.
