# Find the Components Along the Coordinate Axes of the Position Vector of the Following Point : R(–11, –9) - Mathematics

Sum

Find the components along the coordinate axes of the position vector of the following point :

R(–11, –9)

#### Solution

The position vector of point R(-11,-9), $\overrightarrow{OR} = - 11\hat{ i} - 9 \hat{j}$

Component of $\overrightarrow{OR}$ along x-axis = a vector of magnitude 11 having its direction along the negative direction of x-axis.
Component of $\overrightarrow{OR}$  along y-axis = a vector of magnitude 9 having its direction along the negative direction of y-axis.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
