"Solve circuits the simple way. Draw them and tap Solve to get them solved."
This application uses Kirchoff's Voltage Law and common concepts of mesh analysis to solve circuits. Just draw the circuit, and for each loop, keep adding in whatever is needed (R,L,C,V) via the blue dots until they meet and become black. No blue dots mean all loops are complete.
Features in version 1.0 -
1. Draw-it-yourself approach to make the circuit.
2. DC calculations for complex-interlinked loops.
3. AC calculations for single frequency circuits, which can be easily solved via phasor interpretation.
4. AC results shown in A < B format where A is the magnitude of phasor and B is angle of phasor with reference.
5. Components available - inductor, capacitor, resistor, DC source, AC source.
6. Reset circuit option.
**Advice for use
New connecting wire can be drawn only from where you ended the last connection.

In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the 1972 UNESCO Convention concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage and to further its objectives, the Smithsonian and UNESCO have partnered to produce the Stories of World Heritage app and website http://worldheritage.si.edu Uniting 187 countries in the collective protection of our shared heritage, this Convention is the most successful international heritage conservation instrument in existence, and the only one that links together in a single document the concepts of nature conservation and the preservation of cultural properties. The Convention is a vital instrument for concrete action in preserving threatened sites and endangered ecosystems. We hope you’ll support its important work by adding your voice to the Stories of World Heritage project!
