Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student had an exam recently, but did not receive the results of his test yet. We solved two homework problems with inductor, dependent current source, and a voltage source. The circuit involves a switch that allows the inductor to be charged with current and switched to isolate the source and allow for the inductor to be discharged; differential equations were written and solved. The other problem involves two capacitors charged through a steady state configuration with a voltage source. The two caps are then isolated by two switches and linked by a resistor. The general differential equation for the current through the resistor is found and solved. The steady state voltages are found and the energy stored is compared to the initial Energy stored in the two caps. The problems helped the student understand that when a resistor is in the circuit the Energy is not conserved but, in this case, 4th of the original energy is dissipated in the resistive element."
"We worked on momentum and impulse. We then reviewed the basic concepts and worked through some of the student's homework problems."
"The student and I covered some material from his last exam. It had to do with friction and rotational kinematics."
