I used http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php?topic=634.msg2195#msg2195
to construct this http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php?topic=1018.msg3713#msg3713
at this moment the applet derived from yours :) can do this!
i notice i changed the codes to take values of dx2,dy2,dx1 and dy1 to find xp and xp ( the coordinate of the component of the FORCE (black line) on the BLUE line.
The current programmed applet works fine, but i can't figure out a way to make the applet to be controlled by F (length) and angle (cta) like the
I am guessing i need to change and rewrite the codes to use F and cta bearing in mind that i still want to applet to allow the black line to be draggable which i notice is determined by the size x and size y and i noticed if i use size x = F*Math.cos(cta) and size y = F*Math.sin(cta), the applet is no longer draggable ??? I am struck here >:(
any tips how i can mimic http://www.walter-fendt.de/ph14e/forceresol.htm ability to allow F draggable and still can resolve components which your source codes allows me to built on.
