Vector Addition Model 

written by Andrew Duffy
supported by the National Science Foundation

The Vector Addition model allows the user to practice vector addition of two vectors in two dimensions.  You are given the magnitude and direction of the two vectors, and your goal is to fill in the nine values in the table (showing the x-component, y-component, and length) of the two vectors, and the resultant vector that is the sum of the first two vectors.

The Vector Addition 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.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
