Learners view the waveforms and voltages of an Edison Three-Wire System and read a description of the polarities across the secondary of the center-tap transformer. This transformer supplies power to residential homes.
In this animated object, learners examine the mechanical configuration of a three-way switch and how it operates in a circuit. They also view diagrams showing the use of an ohmmeter to determine the electrical connections.
In this fourth part in a series, learners follow the steps of the “mathemagician” to examine three numerical curiosities: Be a Psychic by Predicting Birthdays, Predict a Card with Mind Reading, and Predict the Three Die Values Your Opponent Has Rolled. Learners will also study palindromic numbers and look at two alphametric puzzles.
In this animated object, learners examine three data compare instructions used by programmable logic controllers (PLCs). A practical application to show how these instructions are used in an industrial setting is provided.
