Title: EJS version of Vector addition (sum of two vectors)Post by: Fu-Kwun Hwang on October 11, 2009, 02:59:59 pm
This is EJS version of vector addition (http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php?topic=51.0).
The applet shows how vector $\vec{C}=\vec{A}+\vec{B}$ was calculated. 1. Calculate X,Y components of vector $\vec{A},\vec{B}$, $\vec{C}_x=\vec{A}_x+\vec{B}_x$ and $\vec{C}_y=\vec{A}_y+\vec{B}_y$ 2. If you un-check x-y mode: The sum is equal to sum of parallel components of $\vec{A},\vec{B}$ in the direction of $vec{C}$, $\vec{C}=\vec{A}_p +\vec{B}_p$ and the normal component of $\vec{A},\vec{B}$ always cancel out with each other. i.e. $\vec{A}_n+\vec{B}_n=0$ or $\vec{A}_n= -\vec{B}_n$ You can select to operate in C=A+B , A=C-B or B=C-A mode. |
