Images from first and third animations

1)  The first movie shows a rotating vector with its x and y components.

2) The second movie shows 3 vectors drawn to scale in a head-to-tail fashion to find their resultant vector (polygon method).  Next,   the order is changed to show the commutative law of addition.

3)  The third movie is a sequel to the second movie:  the resultant vector rotates 180° and becomes the equilibrant vector.
