The scalar a is the horizontal component of v and the scalar b is the vertical component of v . We can describe the position of a moving particle by a vector, r ( t ). ( 29 t r If we separate r ( t ) into horizontal and vertical components, we can express r ( t ) as a linear combination of standard unit vectors i and j .
