This demonstration will show you the different ways that you can
visualize the x- and y-components of a two dimensional vector. Click the
** rotate** and

The two dimensional vector is the black vector.

- You control the
of this vector with the*direction*and*'Rotate Counterclockwise'**'Rotate Clockwise'* - You control the
of this vector with the*size*and*'Increase Magnitude'*buttons.*'Decrease Magnitude'*

If the 'Show Components' checkbox is selected, the x- and y-components of the two dimensional vector will be drawn.

- The components can be drawn in one of
. Select the*four styles*labeled*radio buttons*,*1*,*2*, and*3**4*

If the 'Show Angle' checkbox is selected, then the angle for the two dimensional vector will be drawn.

- The angle can be drawn and output in either
or in*North, South, West, East notation*. Use the obvious radio buttons to see these options.*standard position*

The angles can be presented as measured in either degrees or radians.

- Use the last set of radio buttons to change this option.
- The abbreviation
is used for degrees.*'Deg.'* - The abbreviation
is used for radians. This is a bit unusual. In fact, angles in radians are usually shown as pure numbers with no unit marked. We mark it here for clarity's sake.*'Rad.'*
