Nice applet to visualize vector addition. The applet is set up in such a way
that the resultant will be within the window. This means that when working with
many vectors some configurations won?t work and it feels as if the applet is

Technical Remarks:

Runs fine under WIN98 and Explorer

A nice, clean, smooth-running applet that demonstrates the head-to-tail method
of vector addition quite nicely. No quantitative information, however.
