# Resistive_Element

The model simulates current flow through a conductor of resistance R. Current is induced by the energy potential V_i applied across the conductor.

Model number: 0069

## Description

This model is the electrical analog of fluid flowing down a single resistive vessel. The input voltage, Vi(t), is used to calculate the current, IR(t), through the conductor with a fixed resistance, R. Ohm's Law is used to calculate the current and then recover the voltage in the form of the variable Vo(t). The fluid analogs for voltage (volts), current (coulomb/sec) and resistance (ohms) are pressure (mmHg), flowrate (mL/sec) and resistance (mmHg*sec/mL) respectively.

## Equations

The equations for this model may be viewed by running the JSIm model applet and clicking on the Source tab at the bottom left of JSim's Run Time graphical user interface. The equations are written in JSim's Mathematical Modeling Language (MML). See the Introduction to MML and the MML Reference Manual. Additional documentation for MML can be found by using the search option at the Physiome home page.
