The RLC Circuit with Function Generator model simulates a resistor, capacitor and inductor in series with either a sinusoidal or square wave voltage source and plots the time dependence of the voltage drops across each element. Users can vary the resistance, capacitance, inductance and source frequency.
The RLC Circuit with Function Generator model is a supplemental simulation for the article "Demonstrations with an LCR Circuit" by Yaakov Kraftmakher in The Physics Teacher 49(3), 168-170 (2011) and has been approved by the author and The Physics Teacher editor. The RLC Circuit model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_em_RlcCircuit.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
