Detailed Description:

This applet depicts the effects of voltage and resistance on current. It shows a battery connected to a variable resistor. The resistor is modeled by a narrow spot in the wire, analogous to the narrow spot in the pipe which provides resistance in the water flow example. The student can control both the battery voltage and the resistance with sliders
