DC Current Flow Through a Parallel Circuit
Learners observe current flow throughout the series portion and branches of a parallel circuit. This animated activity includes calculations and a short quiz.
Learners read an explanation of the RL time constant and examine the formula for calculating the instantaneous current value. The current is graphed as it climbs to maximum or drops to zero. Note* In the formulas in this module, the Greek letter epsilon should be the mathematical constant 'e'.
