written by Fu-Kwun Hwang
This applet simulates the transient behavior of a simple RC circuit.  The user can change the magnitudes of the resistance, capacitance, and the voltage of the battery, as well as flip a switch between its two positions.  The applet then graphs the voltage and current in the circuit as functions of time, and displays visual representations of those two quantities on a circuit diagram.

Please note that this resource requires Java.
