RC Circuit Model 

written by Wolfgang Christian
content provider: Anne Cox

RC Circuit models the dynamical behavior of a voltage source attached in series to a resistor and capacitor. The source voltage can be chosen to be either a 10 volt sinusoidal or square wave with an adjustable frequency. Users can examine and change the model if they have Ejs installed.

The RC 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_RcCircuit.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.  Ejs is a part of the Open Source Physics Project and is designed to make it easier to access, modify, and generate computer models.  Additional Ejs models are available.  They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Ejs.
