Homework Statement


I basically want to find the x and y component of a given magnitude of 1.96 N. I am given some other information such as mass and direction. Since the direction of the vector b is upwards, towards the 90-degree direction, then the y-component will also be equal to the magnitude of 1.96 N? Thus, x-component will be 0 N? Are my assumptions right?
