as a sum of two vectorsAxandAy along the x and the y-axis respectively, as shown.Axand Ayare calledthe componentsof vector A and are given byAx= A cosα Ay= A sinα α (≤ 900)is the angle vector Amakes with the x-axis.In order to find the resultant vector Rof a system of vectors A, B, C, etc we follow these steps:a) Find the x and y components for each vector using the above equations. i.e find:
y ....
b) Add up these components to get:
+ …
+ …
R is:
