The objective of this video is to explain how to find the components of a vector V given its magnitude and direction with respect to the x-axis. 

The following 6 examples are discussed in this video.

Example 1:  V has a magnitude of 20 and is directed along the positive x-axis

Example 2:  V has a magnitude of 10 and is directed along the positive y-axis

Example 3:  V has a magnitude of 40  and is directed along the negative x-axis

Example 4:  V has a magnitude of 5  and makes an angle theta with the positive  x-axis

Example 5:  V has a magnitude of 10  and makes an anglof e 140 degrees with the positive  x-axis in an anticlockwise direction.

Example 6:  V has a magnitude of 20  and makes an angle 122 degrees with the positive x-axis but in a clockwise direction.
