This applet demonstrates Ohms Law which states that Voltage is directly proportional to the current in a metallic conductor of constant temperature and pressure. The constant of proportionality is the resistance of the conductor. The applet consists of a simple DC circuit, having a DC source, a resistor, voltmeter and ammeter. Users can set the initial value for voltage and current and vary the resistance and/or voltage to see the corresponding change in the current.
This applet is part of a large collection of physics applets by the author and is available in a wide range of languages here: http://www.walter-fendt.de/ph14e/
