Vector Addition Patterns Model 

written by Andrew Duffy
supported by the National Science Foundation

The Vector Addition Patterns model illustrates the tail-to-tip method of adding vectors.  The table at the bottom shows the components and lengths of the vectors.  You can also rotate the vectors and trace out some interesting patterns.

The Vector Addition Patterns model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the ejs_bu_vector_addition_patterns.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
