Look inside a resistor to see how it works. Increase the battery voltage to make more electrons flow though the resistor. Increase the resistance to block the flow of electrons. Watch the current and resistor temperature change. This simulation of a battery-resistor circuit is from the physics education technology website of University of Colorado. Included are links to related topics and additional ideas and activities for teachers to use.
