Find x component of vector

Find the components of the vector. To find the components of a vector use these formulas: vx = vcosθ v x = v cos θ. vy = vsinθ v y = v sin θ. vx = vcos60° v x = v cos 60 ° → vx =

How to Find Vector Components

The x-component of a vector can be either sinθ or cosθ, depending on which angle you are given. Cosθ always goes with the side of a right triangle that is adjacent to (touches) the given angle.

Define resultant vector.

To find the direction of the vector when its components Ax A x and Ay A y are given we use. tanθ = Ax Ay tan θ = A x A y. or, θ = tan−1(Ax Ay) θ = tan − 1 ( A x A y) This is how you identify the
