Definition: | one of a set of linearly independent vectors, the sum of which is equal to a given vector EXAMPLE - for a given vector $U={U}_{1}{a}_{1}+{U}_{2}{a}_{2}+\mathrm{...}+{U}_{n}{a}_{n}$, where ${U}_{1}\text{,}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{U}_{2}\text{,}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{...}\text{,}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{U}_{n}$ are the coordinates of
and ${a}_{1}\text{,}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{a}_{2}\text{,}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{...}\text{,}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{a}_{n}$ are the base vectors, any of the vectors ${U}_{1}{a}_{1}\text{,}{U}_{2}{a}_{2}\text{,}\mathrm{...}\text{,}{U}_{n}{a}_{n}$,*U* - the projections of a vector normal and tangential to a surface (normal component and tangential component).
Note 1 to entry: In English, the term "component vector" may be used if "component" is used in the sense of "coordinate" (see Note 2 to entry in IEV 102-03-09). | ||
