## Detail Page

written by Scott Schneider
This PhysLet shows the voltage graphs for the series RLC AC circuit, and the phasor diagrams of the voltage vectors. The user can specify the driving voltage (E), the frequency (f), the resistance (R), the capacitance (C) and the inductance (L). The graph on the left shows the rotating phasors of the voltages. The graph on the right plots the amplitudes of the individual vectors (VR, VC, VL), and the combined vector (Emax).

This is part of a large collection of Physlet-based (Physics Java Applet) illustrations and tutorials covering introductory physics.
