The Physics Source website will be unavailable Friday evening through Saturday afternoon as electrical work occurs in the American Center of Physics server room. Down time will begin at 6PM Eastern Time on Friday. Service is expected to resume by 6PM on Saturday, July 30.
This item is an interactive Java tutorial that simulates the movement of free electrons when voltage is applied across a conductor. As the user adjusts the current flow, the resulting changes are represented on both a macro and nanoscale. The design of the simulation helps the beginner understand how electron collision causes resistance within a system. This applet is part of a larger collection sponsored by Florida State University.
