This learning object describes the production of an alternating current in a generator with a single-loop armature. An illustration of how a sine wave is produced is shown through animation.
In this animated lesson, learners examine sine waves and alternating current. A brief quiz completes the object.
In this animated object, learners examine cycles, frequency, Hertz, wavelengths, and periods. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Learners examine an animation that shows how an AC voltage is produced as an armature rotates within a magnetic field. Ten review questions complete the learning object.
In this interactive and animated object, learners examine the flow of electron current into and out of hot and neutral sockets during each alternation of an AC waveform. A brief quiz completes the activity.
In this animated activity, learners read an explanation of the four different modalities (currents) used in electrotherapy.
Using text and graphics, this learning activity describes a sine wave, including alternations, cycles, time, amplitude, and degrees
In this animated lesson, students read an analogy comparing water in a "special" water tank to the current "flow" through a capacitor.
This learning activity describes the abilities of an inductor coil to oppose alternating current and to pass direct current.
