This primer introduces the student to the key terms and concepts associated with the silicon diode.
Charging Time Constants of an RC Circuit (Screencast)
By Terry Bartelt
In this animated object, students view an explanation of how current, voltage, and the charge on a capacitor of a series RC circuit change during five time constants. A short quiz completes the activity.
Who Wants to Be an "Engin-aire?" -- Heat Treatment
By Bryan LaVigne
Learners answer questions about the heat treatment of metals using a game show format. Immediate feedback is provided.
This learning activity presents information on how the type of material used for the core material of an inductor affects the inductors value in henries.
Torque Sequence of Two Mating Surfaces
By James Bourassa
In this interactive object, learners demonstrate the proper tightening sequence for mechanically joining two mating surfaces.
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.
By Patrick Hoppe
This learning object introduces the three approximations of a 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.
