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.
