Electromagnetic Oscillating Circuit


Electromagnetic Oscillating Circuit

Logo for Electromagnetic Oscillating Circuit
This simulation deals with an electromagnetic oscillating circuit, consisting of a capacitor (center) and an inductor (i.e. a coil, on theright). As soon as you have pressed the "Reset" button, the plates of the capacitor will be charged, namely the upper plate positivelyand the lower plate negatively. After clicking on the "Start" button with the mouse, the switch will be brought to its other position so thatthe oscillation will begin. The button "Pause / Resume" makes it possible to interrupt...

This applet illustrates a concept that is very hard to get across orally. For
that reason I highly recommend it for any calculus-based physics course. The
graphics are very nice, and the applet runs smoothly.
