Absorb Physics by David Fairhurst

Current flow: long wire

Added by David Fairhurst on Feb 6, 2008

An interactive animation illustrating resistance in a long copper wire. Ions undergo thermal motion whilst electrons flow through the wire, demonstrating that resistance is proportional to the length of the wire.

This resource is from the unit Resistance which is part of Absorb Physics.
