Duration 1 module (40 hours)
This module provides knowledge of basic and derived units of mechanical and electrical measurement and the skills to manipulate equations to solve problems involving these units. Students will gain knowledge in the principles of electrical conduction, the electrical characteristics of material and the conversion of electrical energy to other forms and visa versa. Physiological and damaging effects of current and how these are dealt with in practice is also covered. In addition, students will gain an understanding of the relationship between voltage and current and develop skills in working safely with circuits and using and caring for electrical measuring instruments including an introduction to the use of an oscilloscope.
