Vector components
The model illustrates the motion of the particle with a constant speed. You are to vary the values and angles of the velocity or its components by dragging the tips of the arrows and see how they are related. After you chose the initial speed of the particle press the Run button to observe the motion. Use the simulation to check your skills. For example make the value of the velocity equal to 50 m/s and the angle equal to 60?. Now calculate the values of x and y components of the velocity. Check you answer with the help of the simulation.
