Electricity & Magnetism

Direction of current, direct current, alternative current

Product Code: ELE0016

Price: 4 USD ( Order Form )

Files: 3 Quicktime file (512 X 384 pixels, totalling 1.2 Mb) and 3 AVI files (512 X 384 pixels, totalling 4 Mb) .

Description: These movies show electric current running in a simple circuit (consisting of a voltage source and a resistor). Moving negative charges and stationary positive charges are shown. An arrow shows the conventional direction of current (opposite to the direction of motion of negative charges). The first movie shows a direct current running clockwise, the second movie shows a direct current running counterclockwise, and the third movie shows alternative current.

The movie at right is a free demonstration version, reduced in size.
