On the first, I would study mainly switches and transistors, although anything and everything could be on the test (especially given that it's a big-binder event).Does anyone have an idea of what types of electrical control devices we need to know about as explained in 3. c. vii.?
I was wondering if we might need to know about switches, relays, and solenoids too. Also, I was wondering what everyone is doing to study for the simple measurements, constructions, and configurations of a circuit and individual components as explained in 3. c. viii.
Thanks
Ths issue here is that transistors are both semiconductor devices and nonlinear... I'm somewhat confused about what is on the scope of this test.On the first, I would study mainly switches and transistors, although anything and everything could be on the test (especially given that it's a big-binder event).Does anyone have an idea of what types of electrical control devices we need to know about as explained in 3. c. vii.?

I haven't been to any tournaments, but I would expect problems involving applications of Kirchhoff's laws to determine resistances/capacitances. In addition, designing a circuit on a breadboard to meet certain specifications, or troubleshooting a circuit could all be possibilities.Does anyone have any advice on how to design/run the practical portion? In particular, what tasks are common and how many is typical?
At the one competition I have been to, we were asked to find resistance using band codes. I would expect things like how to use multi-meters in the future.I haven't been to any tournaments, but I would expect problems involving applications of Kirchhoff's laws to determine resistances/capacitances.

Nothing for now...
Try looking for Shock Value tests. The practical portion is whatever the event supervisor makes of it.I'm pretty new to this topic as well,
for the practical, do we just need to know how to use a multimeter or is there more.. will we have to calculate stuff from the made circuit?
also, are there any old practice tests for division b. I can only find ones from division C
thank you...
