This applet allows the user to build a DC circuit and it then simulates how the circuit works.  Students can place batteries, light bulbs, wires, switches, ammeters, and voltmeters.  The applet lists the current and voltage being read by the meters, and lights up the light bulb if appropriate.  The simulation also has preset circuits  designed to demonstrate certain principles, such as Ohm's Law or how series circuits work.

Please note that this resource requires Shockwave.
