Step-by-Step Solution:

Problem 8Q

 

Step-by-step solution

 

Step 1 of 2</p>

 

(a) The magnitude of a vector can be equal to one of its components only if all the other components of the vectors are 0. In this case, the vector must be parallel to one of the coordinate axes.

 

Mathematically, A = Ax where A = (Ax2 + Ay2)½ is possible when Ay = 0.
