PLEASE HELP: Vector help, please! What does all this due "some direction" stuff mean? For example, in a problem involving several forces acting on an object (thus several vectors) I'm given a vector that states 20N of force due north. Then I'm asked to find the x an y component of that vector??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1due north in an xy plane is up. so [0, 20] or 0i + 20j

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So how do I find the x and y component?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1due means directly. dw:1380669811241:dw it is entirely in the y direction. so the x component is 0 and the y component is 20 N

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. I'm sort of stuck on the second vector then: force of 30N, 30 degrees north of west

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How would I find the x and y component of that? What does north of west mean?
