Description: In the Java applet repeated independent Bernoulli trials are represented by a single ball falling through an array of pins. Each time a ball falls onto a pin, it will bounce to the right (i.e. a success) with probability p or to the left (i.e. a failure) with probability 1-p. After the ball falls through the array, it lands in a bin labeled by the corresponding number of successes. There is also an option to download the applet for off-line viewing.
