Textbook Problem

Calculate (a) the x-component and (b) the y-component of the vector with magnitude 24.0 m and direction 56.0°.

(a)

To determine
The x component of the vector.

Explanation

Given Info: The magnitude of the vector is 24m and direction is 56° .

Formula to calculate the x component of the vector is,

x=acosθ

  • x is x component of the vector
  • a is magnitude of the vector
  • θ is the angle

Substitute 24m for a , 56° for θ to find x

(b)

To determine
The y component of the vector.
