Website Detail Page

written by Andrew Duffy
This web page is an interactive physics simulation on alternating current circuits.  A circuit with a resistor, inductor, capacitor, and AC source is shown, and the user can see how the voltages across them change as the frequency of the AC generator changes.  

This item is part of a larger collection of introductory physics simulations developed by the author.  See Related items on this page for a link to the full index of simulations by the same author on Electricity and Magnetism.

Please note that this resource requires Java.
