This applet demonstrates a method to find two vectors that sum to a given vector. The component vectors can be in any directions relative to the given vector and each other. This is a generalization of finding orthogonal components of a vector in a Cartesian coordinate system. This applet is a part of a large collection of physics applets, available in a wide range of languages.
