RCL Circuit with Battery Model 

written by Wolfgang Christian

The RLC Circuit with Battery model simulates a resistor, capacitor and inductor in series with a battery and plots the time dependence of the voltage drops across each element. Users can vary the resistance, capacitance, and inductance and can toggle the battery voltage between two values.

The  RLC Circuit with Battery 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 with Battery model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the ejs_em_RlcCircuitWithBattery.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
