Unformatted text preview: sθ y ( and z in 3D) components of a vector. They are usually denoted by x, y (or z) subscript and may be called cartesian components. •  If we know the vector, we know the components. Also, if we know the components, we know the vector. Ay O X A θ Ax X Ax = Acosθ Ay = Asinθ A = A2 + A2 x y ⎛ Ay ⎞ θ = tan −1 ⎜ ⎟ ⎝ Ax ⎠ Components of a vector (contd…) Example 1 : If a ball is dropped, its accelera#on is g = 9.8 m/s2. What is its accelera#on down an incline (no fric#on) of angle 30o with the horizon? gsin30o = 4.9 m/s2 down the plane A O g Θ=30o Acosθ X v Example 2 : If a bullet is ﬁred up in air angle 60o with the horizon with speed of 300 m/s, as indicated in the ﬁgure above, what is its velocity along the x ­axis? Along y ­axis? Addi#on and subtrac#on of vectors...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
