Exploriments: Vectors - Addition and Resolution
By IL&FS Education and Technology Services Ltd.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The Exploriments Vector app provides an interactive and visual environment to explore vectors. Interactively change magnitude and direction of vectors and see how it affects the resultant vector. Learn about resolution of vectors and explore different techniques of adding two or more vectors.
The Exploriments Series of interactive simulation-based tools makes conceptual learning in science an engaging and insightful experience. Visit www.exploriments.com to know more.
Vector Definition & Resolution
--- Vector definition in terms of magnitude and direction
--- Vector resolution into horizontal and vertical components
Addition of Two Vectors – Triangle Method
--- Graphical addition of vectors using the Triangle method
--- Compare with the corresponding algebraic method
Addition of Two Vectors – Parallelogram Method
--- Graphical addition of vectors using the Parallelogram method
--- Compare with the Triangle method
Addition of Multiple Vectors
--- Add up to four vectors using the head-to-tail graphical method
-- Compare with algebraic addition of the vectors
--- Simply touch and move the vectors around in an intuitive manner
--- Simultaneous graphical and numerical representation of vectors
--- Try out a number of varying scenarios
What's New in Version 1.1
Update for iOS7 reported issues.
Scale graphs please
This is a useful tool for teaching or learning vector addition, but it could be dramatically improved by having the ability to change the scale of the graphs. Having a resultant vector go off scale does not help in seeing the vector.
