Component Vectors

    How can we find component vectors along non-perpendicular lines/axis? Please illustrate with example.

    In the same way as you would with perpendicular axes.
    The inner product just projects one vector onto some axis (i.e. another vector), it doesn't depend on separate axes to be perpendicular.
