This applet is designed to give students an intuitive, conceptual understanding of the steady-state AC behavior of a series RLC circuit. Relations are shown between the "phasors" of the impedance and voltage, the temporal response and the frequency response.

Instructions: Play with the sliders to to change the behavior of the system!
Color code: Red = resistor, Pink = Inductor, Blue = Capacitor, Black = Total (or Frequency)
