How to use incorporated applets
The applet sizes make possible to use them even with 640 x 480 screen resolution.They are loaded with their input components, except "reset" or "clear", disabled. A click on "reset" or "clear" button (whichever is actually active) activates all necessary parameter choices. If a short explanation in front of each choice is not clear, please find more information in the accompanying text.
The action buttons have the following functions:
Be also aware that for slowly starting motions you may have initial impression that the applet is not working. Please be patient, smallest distance any object in the applet can move is a one pixel.
