Find the vector components along the directions noted in parentheses.

a. a car displaced 45degrees north of east by 10.0 km (north east)

b. a duck accelerating away from a hunter at 2.0meter per second squared at an angle of 35degrees to the ground (horizontal and vertical)

  1. I love Polka also. And Opera, and Maria CAllas.

    Take the trig functions. I start the angle measurement at N, then clockwise.

    a) Ncomponent=10km*cos45
    Ecomponent=10km*sin45

    b) Vertical component=2.0m/s^2 sin35
    Horizontal component=2.0m/s^2 cos35
