And my question is: Is the validity of the vector approach in mechanics entirely based on its consistency with experimental results?

Every time I do a question, I use the usual component resolution technique unique to vectors and I can do it correctly. But I can't help but wonder how a practical science can link up so nicely with a subject with only internal coherence like mathematics. And it leads me to think that experimental results are the only basis for the validity of the principles.

Can someone help me with that?? Thanks.
