Discovery of electrical and electronic
circuits through videomodels

This site shows electric and
electronic circuits behavior
thanks to "videomodels"
(video: I see, but what I see
is only a model).

In order to optimize the site, select your level :

A circuit is formed of components connected together through conductors. Its behavior at any time complies :

  • Kirchhoff laws
  • laws of each component.

This behavior is therefore described using equations. The videomodels express the equations results using a 3D representation where :

  • the scheme occupies the first two dimensions
  • the third dimension represents the electric potential
  • the current, where represented, appears as a yellow cone surrouding the conductor.

Each image of a videomodel shows the circuit at a given time.

  • Discover the site interactivity :
    Click Introduction on the menu Circuits at the beginning of the page

  • Discover a component :
    Select it on the menu Components at the beginning of the page

  • Discover a circuit :
    Select it on the menu Circuits at the beginning of the page

  • Observe the introduction circuit but without tutorial bubbles visible on the page Introduction :
    This circuit is shown below and is also explained on pages about capacitor and switch components.
