Cute applet to add two vectors that are given in polar form. This is a
continuation of the same author?s applet for components. The complete solution
can be displayed if the student so desires. Good applet for some drill and
practice on converting between coordinate systems and addition of vectors.

Technical Remarks:

Runs fine under WIN98 and Explorer.

By allowing the ability to test the student, this applet has a versatility that
most other applets lack. For those wanting to create assignments, this applet
should be ideal.
