Two dimensional kinematics (component velocity)

  1. Oct 10, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    When a problem tells me that the velocity at some h is v=4.13i+6.76j m/s
    does that mean that the velocity in xdirection = 4.13 m/s and the velocity in the ydirection = 6.76 m/s. and so are the horizontal and vertical components of velocity constant?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Not necessarily.
