**Two vectors a and b have the components, in meters, ax = 3.5, ay = 1.1, bx = 0.9, by = 4.2.**

(a) Find the angle between the directions of a and b.

60°

There are two vectors in the xy plane that are perpendicular to a and have a magnitude of 4.5 m. One, vector c has a positive x component and the other, vector d, a negative x component.

(b) What is the x component of c?

m

(c) What is the y component of c?

m

(d) What is the x component of d?

m

(e) What is the y component of d?

- I have tried numerous things to figure out the xy components on this problem, but I don't think I really even know where to start. If somebody could point me in the right direction and give me some hints on how to solve this, that would be great. This is the only problem of the 14 on my homework assignment that I can't seem to figure out. I'm trying to get this submitted by 2am CST. Thanks for any help.
