I have visited several sights with the similar purpose of illustrating vector
addition, but this one seems to really help you visualize the process.

I was very impressed with this site. If it weren't for the fact that it was a
little slow, this site would have been completely perfect. I especially liked
the "adding four vectors" part! --MJC

The best site I have yet to see, although the arrows get stuck on occasion.
Four vector option is very nice.

Good at showing vector addition of several (up to 4) vectors, but it seems to
take up a lot of cpu, so your cursor tends to disappear, and it is difficult to
manipulate the vectors. Awesome with what its meant to show, though

The most useful vector applet I have found for teaching.
