This item is an interactive Java tutorial that simulates the movement of free electrons when voltage is applied across a conductor. As the user adjusts the current flow, the resulting changes are represented on both a macro and nanoscale. The design of the simulation helps the beginner understand how electron collision causes resistance within a system. This applet is part of a larger collection sponsored by Florida State University.
