This item is a Java simulation that illustrates the "water-flow model" of simple electrical circuit. The circuit is made up of a pump (the battery) and two parallel branches. One of the branches includes a resistance coil, the other a propeller. Users can control the flow rate of water.  

This item is part of Mag Lab U. Which is a large collection of web-based educational materials for K-20, developed by the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory at Florida State University.  Refer to "related materials" for full index of interactive Java tutorials.

Please note that this resource requires Java Applet Plug-in.
