Lecture 8: Vector Components Average amount spent lobbying Congress each day it was in session last year: \$16,279,069

Vector Components y x A AxAx AyAy θ

y x A x < 0 AyAy θ φ

y x AyAy AxAx θ Given A and θ we found A x and A y Given A x and A y, find A and θ

Given A and θ we found A x and A y Given A x and A y, find A and θ Cx = C sin φ φ C y = C cos φ

Adding vectors numerically Also called algebraic addition What would subtraction look like? Scalar multiplication?
