a variety of series LRC circuits and observe the transient behavior. The applet
is rather well done, and qualitatively and quantitatively illustrates the
physics of this class of series circuits rather well. It has an unusual display,
showing the voltages at the nodes by tilting the circuit. This is clever, but
probably will need to be explained to most students.
The display of (t,V) points would be more quantitatively useful if it showed
only the actual values of V for a given t, and only when the mouse pointer is
close to the plotted voltage curve. As is, the graphs are hard to see on the
gray background, and cannot be used for consistent quantitative measurements.
