Textbook Problem

Under what circumstances would a vector have components that are equal in magnitude?

To determine
The circumstances under which a vector have components that are equal in magnitude.

Explanation

Introduction:

The components of a vector will be equal in magnitude if the vector lies at 45° angle with the two axes along which the components lie.

Explanation:

Let us consider the vector (A) with x-components (ax) and y-component (ay) and direction along at an angle 45°.

Express the vector as a component,

A=axcosθ+aysinθ

Substitute a for ax, a for ay and 45° for θ
