Lesson 26 – Capacitors and Inductors I (Sections 61 and 62) (CLO 61)
This is the first of two lessons on Capacitors and Inductors.
The first lesson introduces the iv characteristics
of the devices and includes power and energy considerations.
The second lesson discusses combining
multiple devices and introduces two new operational modules, the integrator and differentiator.
The discussion of inductance and capacitance sometimes frightens some students.
It is not the description of
the devices but rather the fact that their
iv
characteristics have integrals and derivatives associated with them.
They want to believe that these new devices ought to have
iv
relationships like
v=iR
.
It is useful, then, to
stress the
iv
relationships, focusing on the derivative relationship but not ignoring the integral one either.
All
of the students should have had or are taking Physics and these should not be totally new to them.
You might begin by telling the students that the two new devices they are about to learn are really cool.
