written by Andrew Duffy
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.

For a more advanced simulation on vector addition by the same author, SEE RELATED ITEMS on this page.

This applet was created with EJS, Easy Java Simulations, a modeling tool that allows users without formal programming experience to generate computer models and simulations.

Please note that this resource requires Java.
