written by Andrew Duffy
This 2D applet simulates vector addition geometrically. 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.

Please note that this resource requires Java.
