This interactive Java simulation allows students to practice vector components in two modes: "Find Components" and "Find Magnitude and Direction".  Included are tabs to check answers and hints if the user needs extra help. This item may be downloaded in xml format or as a JAR file.

This applet was created with EJS, Easy Java Simulations, a code-generating tool that allows users without formal programming experience to develop computer simulations.

SEE RELATED ITEMS on this page for a link to the full index of Andrew Duffy's EJS simulations.

Please note that this resource requires Java.
