Hi

I need to write a program in JAVA which simulates the solar system. I'll be using the Beeman's algorithm seen here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beeman%27s_algorithm"

My question is that if I have the vectors for : velocity, acceleration and position how do I decompose them into there x and y components? I have forgotten a lot about the basics of vectors.

Please help

thanks
