Instructions on how to use the Simulation Applet

Drag-able Ammeter and Ammeter Reading

(Default position)
Step 1: Look at the ammeter reading.
It gives a default value of 0.0A.
Step 2: Drag the blue ammeter into a cyan cell.
The cyan cell will disappear, as the reading of the current will be placed above the ammeter.
The current across the ammeter also can be checked with the ammeter reader.
Step 3: Check with the ammeter reader.
Step 4: Move the drag-able ammeter away.
The ammeter will return back to it's default position and the reading will become 0.0 A.
However, the reading of the current across that particular cell is stored and remains on the board.

Answering the Questions

To make the answer for the question to appear,
you must place the ammeter at least once per cell.
Step 1: Put the ammeter across all three cells at least once
Step 2: Look at the right bottom of the screen.
A conclusion button will appear.
Step 3: Click on the conclusion button.
A blue popup text with a concluding statement will appear in the centre of the circuit.

Reset Button

Clicking on the Reset Button will reset the whole simulation.
