written by Michael Davidson
This item is an interactive java simulation that demonstrates the relationship among current, voltage, and resistance.  As resistance and voltage are adjusted up or down,  the current flow is registered in milliamperes.  The simulation is intended to help users gain an understanding of the concepts underlying Ohm's Law; i.e., an increase in voltage increases current flow, and an increase in resistance decreases current flow.  This item is part of a larger collection on Electricity and Magnetism sponsored by Florida State University.
