Circuit Construction Kit

This simulation allows students to build circuits with capacitors, inductors, resistors and AC or DC voltage sources, and investigate current and voltage.

Sample Learning Objectives include: *Build circuits from circuit diagrams. *Use an ammeter and voltmeter to take readings in circuits. *Discuss basic electricity relationships in series and parallel circuits. *Determine the resistance of common objects in the "Grab Bag." *Discuss how a capacitor in a circuit charges up and then discharges. *Discuss the behavior of an inductor in a circuit.
