This is a QR code. A QR Code is a 2-dimensional barcode, which has encoded in it a URL (web address), text, or other information. It can be read by a QR code scanner, including QR scanner smartphone apps. Once you have an app installed on your smartphone, open the app and hold your phone’s camera over a QR code to read it. Most QR codes you’ll come across have a URL encoded, so chances are when you read the QR code it will take you to a web page.

Nice dynamic applet to demonstrate vector addition. Shows vectors visually and
the components numerically, too. Easy to use.

Technical Remarks:

Runs fine under WIN98 and Explorer

This applet would mesh very well with the familar force-table experiment. The
graphics are very good, and it runs well.
