This 2D applet allows the user to add two vectors both geometrically and algebraically. The user selects the angle and magnitude of two vectors, which are then added together by the applet. The resultant vector and the values of its magnitude and angle, as well as the values of the x and y components of all three vectors, are calculated and displayed. Three questions are added at the bottom to stimulate conceptual understanding.
