I spent at least 2 hours going over these problems. They cover a wide range of
circuit topics (including R, C, and L components), typically found in 3-4
chapters of a conventional text. They illustrate pretty well the potential of
scripting Physlets to produce quality conceptual and/or quantitative
instructional material without having to know much about programming. The
on-line documentation for scripting is pretty straight-forward. Many of the
individual problems are creative uses of physlets; a few are too similar to
standard end-of-chapter problems to warrant scripting. Additional Problem 3 is
confusing, and has an incorrect answer.
