Introduction to Vector Components (8:22)
Components of Vectors are an important piece to understand how vectors work. In this video we learn how to “break” or “resolve” vectors in to their component pieces.

2:17 Finding the x component of vector d
3:18 What does it mean to be a component of a vector?
4:14 A common question about vector components
4:51 Showing mathematically that the vector components add up to the vector
6:48 Explaining how d in the x direction shows both magnitude and direction
