Website Detail Page

published by the MultiMedia Physics
This website contains a java applet which allows users to change the individual forces acting on an object by dragging the tips of the three force vector arrows. The user can observe the effect of this change on the net force, which is simply the vector sum of the three forces.

Please note that this resource requires Java.
