Vector Addition

Vectors are mathematical quantities used to represent concepts such as force or velocity which have both a magnitude and a direction.

Addition of Vectors

If vectors A and B are given by their components as follows:
A = < u1 , v1 > and B = < u2 , v2 >, then the components of vector A + B are < u1 + u2 , v1 + v2 >

Enter different components in the html5 applet below for vectors A and B and explain the results.
