PhET Simulation: Circuit Construction Kit (DC Only) Feature Summary

Type:
Worth a Look
Title:
PhET: Circuit Simulator
Description:
Security note:
Once you have clicked on the "simulation" link below, be sure to read the Java Security Advisory before running the simulation: To do that, click the "Read now" button on the yellow band near the top of the PhET page.

Try the PhET: Circuit Simulator -- it's fun and quite instructive.  You can build circuits with wires, resistors, batteries, bulbs, and switches, in whatever combination you like. Once you have the circuit all built, throw the switch, and you can make voltage and current measurements anywhere in the circuit.
