Vector Fields Simulation

Vector Fields Simulation

This applet demonstrates various properties of vector fields. You can select from a number of vector fields and see how particles move in the field if it is treated as either a velocity or a force field. This helps you visualize the field. Also you can see the values of the divergence and curl of the field. [From Author's Description]

This is a very visually simulating site. I highly recommend it as an effective learning module. it will enhance understanding of complex mathematical concepts especially for those visually creative individuals.

Technical Remarks:

The applet is easy to navigate. It has well organized links and subject topics. It is simple but effective.
Used in course? Yes
Time spent reviewing site: It took me 15 minutes toscroll dowm the various menu and view the visuals and topics.
