What's the frequency?
  • Science
  • MS, HS
The demonstration models the process of sampling an analogue signal at regular intervals in order to encode information digitally.
Drift Velocity
  • Science
  • High School
Using this resource you can show that charge carriers in good conductors usually move very slowly. You can also derive and use the equation I = nAvq.
Electrical Characteristics
  • Science
  • High School
In this episode, students measure the current and voltage characteristics for several components, and identify ohmic and non-ohmic behavior.
Components in series and parallel
  • Science
  • High School
The two aims of this resource are to demonstrate: Adding resistors in series increases the effective resistance. Adding resistors in parallel...
Energy & Power
  • Science
  • High School
In this episode, students find that the energy transferred by an electrical component depends on the potential difference across it, the current...
Newton’s Second Law of Motion
  • Science
  • High School
This episode concerns Newton’s second law.
Energy Changes
  • Science
  • High School
This episode extends the ideas from kinetic energy (and velocity) to braking distance and work. Two experiments are included, both of which connect...
Conservation of Energy
  • Science
  • High School
In this episode it is useful to extend the principle of Conservation of Energy to its wider context in order to give the students a full appreciation...
Introducing Capacitors
  • Science
  • High School
This resource begins the topic by discussing capacitors, rather than the more abstract notion of ‘capacitance’
Energy stored by a capacitor
  • Science
  • High School
This resource focuses on the question of energy stored by a charged capacitor.
