Website Detail Page

written by Andrew Duffy
This web page is an interactive physics simulation on alternating current.  The user can see how the voltage and current are in phase for a resistor, and offset for capacitors and inductors.  The page explains how to calculate root mean square (RMS) values, as well as finding the capacitive and inductive reactance.

This item is part of a collection of similar simulation-based student activities.
