Cutnell & Johnson PHYSICS 5/e
Chapter Twenty Three: Alternating Current Circuits

The RLC Circuit

From Andrea Mameli, Gavino Paddeu, Paolo Anedda, Marco Pescosolido and Enrico Stara of the Centre for Advanced Studies, Research and Development in Sardinia, Italy. Mirrored at Mississippi State.

This site displays an RLC (tank) circuit, and allows the viewer to interactively manipulate the values of Resistance, Inductance and Capacitance. An oscilloscope trace of the current and voltage output from an input sine wave can be seen, as well as a current vs. frequency plot showing how the resonance is affected.

Fifty Years of the Transistor

Lucent technologies: Bell Labs Innovations.

This site celebrates the 50th anniversary of the invention of the transistor by Bardeen, Brattain and Shockley at Bell Labs. The history, impact and function of the transistor are discussed together with current transistor research and a transistor FAQ (Frequently-Asked Questions). There are downloadable Adobe Acrobat .pdf pages here as well.
