The components of a vector depict the influence of that vector in a given direction. The combined influence of the two components is equivavectort to the influence of the single two-dimensional vector. The single two-dimensional vector could be replaced by the two components.For example in the vector (4 1) the x-axis (horizontal) component is 4 and the y-axis (vertical) component is 1. Typically a physics problem gives you an angle and a magnitude to define a vector you have to find the components yourself using a little trigonometry.For example look at the vector given below it is in northeast direction. In the figure we see the X and Y component of this vector. In other words addition of Ax and Ay gives us A vector. In the figure we see the X and Y component of this vector.

If you were to add this red vector to this blue-green dark blue-green vector you would get vector AB but well talk more about that in future vector.Representing the vectors by arrows drawn to scale the beginning of vector B is placed at the end of vector A. The vector sum R can be drawn as the vector from the beginning to the end point. The process can be done mathematically by finding the components of A and B combining to form the components of R and then converting to polar form.

Two vectors are equal if they have the same magnitude and direction. They are parallel if they have the same or opposite direction. They are parallel if they have the same or opposite direction. We can combine vectors by adding them the sum of two vectors is called the resultant.Scalar Quanvectories . Scalar quanvectories as stated above are the measurements that strictly refer to the magnitude of the medium. There are absolutely no directional components in a scalar quanvectory - only the magnitude of the medium.
