This is a good way to think of vectors; however, to calculate results with vectors, it is best to select a coordinate system and manipulate the components of the vectors in that coordinate system. Part A Find the components of the vector with length and angle with respect to the x axis as shown, named . Don't forget that when multiplying two factors, you must include a multiplication symbol; also, the cos and sin functions must have parentheses around their arguments. For example, a vector might take the form p*sin(Q),m*cos(N)
