CURRENT REFERENCE DIRECTIONS

| NEXT DEMOS | TABLE OF CONTENTS |


DEMO 1 - Slide the mouse over the wire to see how the sign of I depends on the direction the equivalent positive charges are flowing. Note that each plus represents the flow of one coulomb/sec of equivalent positive charge.



DEMO 2 - Slide the mouse over the wire to see how the sign of I depends on the direction chosen for the current reference arrow. Note that each plus represents the flow of one coulomb/sec of equivalent positive charge.


DEMO 3 - Slide the mouse over the wire to see how the relationship between the currents depends on their reference directions.


DEMO 4 -Slide the mouse over the circuit to see how the relationship between the currents depends on their reference directions. Note that the boxes contain circuit elements like batteries and light bulbs.


DEMO 5 - Slide the mouse over circuit to see how reversing the leads of the current meter affects the value of I being measured. Note that the boxes contain circuit elements like batteries and light bulbs.
