Title: Generating Electrical Voltage
Url: https://www.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/ate10.sci.phys.energy.genera...
Publisher: WGBH Educational Foundation
Description: Teachers' Domain presents this interactive lesson designed to help students "learn how a generator converts mechanical energy into electrical energy. Investigate the principle of magnetic induction by moving a conductor through a magnetic field to see how voltage is generated." The lesson is divided into three major sections: How Do Generators Work?, What Factors Influence Voltage Strength?, and What Determines Voltage Polarity? There are plenty of animations to help students visualize the processes at work in electricity generation. On the site, visitors will also find a supplemental background essay, discussion questions, and standards alignment from Teachers' Domain.
