Interactive simulation of Vector addition (PhET / UC Boulder)

Posted on August 26, 2010 by


Interactive simulation of vector addition. Let’s you practice adding vectors in arrow style to get a feel for the math.

Learn how to add vectors. Drag vectors onto a graph, change their length and angle, and sum them together. The magnitude, angle, and components of each vector can be displayed in several formats.



PhET is a collection of online science and math simulations sponsored by the University of Colorado, Boulder. They can be run from any web browser provided Java/and or Flash are installed on your local computer.
