Item Picture
written by Michael Davidson
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.

Please note that this resource requires Java Applet Plug-in.
