Figure 13 . Screen output for Listing #3.
```Hello from JavaScript vecResultMag = 8.11vecResultAng = 90.49 The End```

As you can see, the displacement vector is just a little over eight meters at an angle of about 90.5 degrees. In other words, your ending position wasapproximately 8 meters north of your starting position. Hopefully you were able to arrive at a very similar answer using your graph board.

Explanation of the code

The code in Listing 3 is very similar to the code in Listing 2 . However, there is more of it because the code is adding four vectors instead of only 2.

As before, Listing 2 begins with the getAngle method that we developed earlier.

Magnitude and angle for each vector

Then Listing 2 defines eight variables containing the magnitudes and angles of the four segments of the walk.

(Note that the names that I used for the variables in this script are somewhat simpler than the names that I used in Listing 2.)

Horizontal and vertical components

Following that, Listing 2 computes the horizontal and vertical components for each of the four vectors and saves those values in eight different variables.

Sums of components

Then Listing 2 computes and saves the sum of all four horizontal components and computes and saves the sum of all four verticalcomponents.

After that, there is essentially no difference between the script in Listing 3 and the script in Listing 2 .

Other vector operations

In addition to the addition and subtraction of vectors, there are other operations that can be performed using vectors, such as the dot product andthe cross product. However, those operations are beyond the scope of this module.

## Non-mirror-image graphics

Figure 14 through Figure 18 below are non-mirror-image versions of Figure 2 , Figure 4 , Figure 6 , Figure 8 , and Figure 10 .

## Run the scripts

I encourage you to run the scripts that I have presented in this lesson to confirm that you get the same results. Copy the code for each script intoa text file with an extension of html. Then open that file in your browser. Experiment withthe code, making changes, and observing the results of your changes. Make certain that you can explain why your changes behave as they do.

## Resources

I will publish a module containing consolidated links to resources on my Connexions web page and will update and add to the list as additional modulesin this collection are published.

What fields keep nano created devices from performing or assimulating ? Magnetic fields ? Are do they assimilate ?
why we need to study biomolecules, molecular biology in nanotechnology?
?
Kyle
yes I'm doing my masters in nanotechnology, we are being studying all these domains as well..
why?
what school?
Kyle
biomolecules are e building blocks of every organics and inorganic materials.
Joe
anyone know any internet site where one can find nanotechnology papers?
research.net
kanaga
sciencedirect big data base
Ernesto
Introduction about quantum dots in nanotechnology
what does nano mean?
nano basically means 10^(-9). nanometer is a unit to measure length.
Bharti
do you think it's worthwhile in the long term to study the effects and possibilities of nanotechnology on viral treatment?
absolutely yes

how to know photocatalytic properties of tio2 nanoparticles...what to do now
it is a goid question and i want to know the answer as well

for teaching engĺish at school how nano technology help us
Anassong
Do somebody tell me a best nano engineering book for beginners?
there is no specific books for beginners but there is book called principle of nanotechnology
NANO
what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
Tarell
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
Virgil
is Bucky paper clear?
CYNTHIA
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
NANO
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Harper
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
s.
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?

What is lattice structure?
of graphene you mean?
Ebrahim
