written by Fu-Kwun Hwang
This applet simulates the behavior of a simple RLC circuit with an AC voltage source.  The user can change the period of the voltage source, the inductance, and the capacitance of the circuit.  The applet then graphs the voltage of the voltage source and the voltages across the three circuit components as functions of time.  This item is part of a larger collection of physics simulations.

Please note that this resource requires Java.
