This simulations demonstrates the resonant behavior of an RLC circuit. The simulation shows the voltage across each of the elements, a rotating of a phasor diagram, as well as a graph of the inverse of the impedance as a function of frequency. The user can change R, L, and C.

This is part of a large library of simulations titled "Learn Physics Using Java"

Please note that this resource requires Java Applet Plug-in.
