The Physics Source website will be unavailable Friday evening through Saturday afternoon as electrical work occurs in the American Center of Physics server room. Down time will begin at 6PM Eastern Time on Friday. Service is expected to resume by 6PM on Saturday, July 30.
This simulation offers beginning students practice in two-dimensional vector addition. It is relatively simple, as the x and y components of each vector are integers. Given the magnitude and direction of two vectors, students must determine the x and y components, the length of each, and the resultant vector sum.
