RLC Circuit - Complex Impedance

RLC Circuit - Complex Impedance

This Macromedia ShockWave applet illustrates visually the complex impedance in RLC series circuits. The users may use sliders to change the circuit paramters. The applets displays the corresponding complex impedance phasor diagram and the current, phaseshift, and impedence versus frequency graphs. Also shown are the time-dependent current-voltage graphs. Also included are brief introductions to both the physics of LRC circuits and the applet...

Applet works well, but would be more useful from a pedagogical standpoint if it was more quantitative.
