Electric Circuits


DC Circuit Builder

Created by our friends at Nerd Island Studios, the DC Circuit Builder equips the learner with a virtual electronic circuit board. Add resistors, light bulbs, wires and ammeters to build a circuit, Explore Ohm's law. Compare and contrast series, parallel and combination circuits. Use a voltmeter to measure voltage drops. Do all this without the fear of being electrocuted (as long as you don't use your computing device in the bath tub). The Physics Classroom has prepared three different activity sheets to accompany DC Circuit Builder.
