Sorry, you need a Java-enabled browser to see the simulation.

This shows a current source, a device that absorbs a constant amount of current (22.5mA in this case), regardless of the position of the switch. The MOSFET is in saturation, so the current across it is determined by the gate-source voltage, which is constant.
