Title: PhET Resistance in a Wire - Resistivity, Resistance, Ohm, Math, Algebra, Inverse
Url: http://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/resistance-in-a-wire
Publisher: University of Colorado, Boulder
Description: Learn about the physics of resistance in a wire. Change its resistivity, length, and area to see how they affect the wire's resistance. The sizes of the symbols in the equation change along with the diagram of a wire.This simulation of a Resistance in a Wire is from the Physics Education Technology website of University of Colorado. Included are links to related topics and additional ideas and activities for teachers to use.
