Applet: Net Force

Multiple forces sum together as vectors to act as one net force. In this applet, you can change the individual forces acting on an object by dragging the tips of the three force vector arrows (red, green, and blue), and you can observe the effect of this change on the net force (black arrow), which is simply the vector sum of the three forces.
