This applet demonstrates the working of a potentiometer. Potentiometer is an apparatus used to measure the potential (or voltage) in a circuit by tapping off a portion of a known voltage from a resistive slide wire and comparing it with the unknown voltage by means of a voltmeter or galvanometer. The user can set the value for the resistance of the sliding resistor, appliance and supply voltage. This applet is part of a large collection of physics applets and is available in a wide range of languages here: http://www.walter-fendt.de/ph14e/
Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.4.2 of Java.
