What would be the difference between

projection of c on a and b

and

components of c along a and b

I thought they were the same...

thanks.

grabbing the vector a and the vector c (we are projecting a onto c in this case) and its just the length of a in the c direction.

With regards to your question i'm pretty sure you have the right idea.
