Vector resolute examples

Find the scalar and vector resolutes of in the direction of where:

Finding a unit vector in the direction of is:

The scalar resolute [1] of in the direction of is:

The vector resolute [2] of in the direction of is:

The vector resolute of perpendicular to is:

The resolutes of are:

In some situations, you may need to find projection or displacement of
vectors. To find the projection of one vector onto another vector, you find
the vector resolute of the first vector in the direction of the second.

To find the displacement, you need to find the change in position - by
adding the vectors and then finding the magnitude of the resultant vector.

To find the distance travelled, you find the magnitude of the individual
vectors and then add.
