Suppose we have a vector Vector Projectionin 2-dimensional space, and we would like to find the component of vector Vector Projection in the direction of horizontal and vertical axis. Using trigonometry we can find the magnitude of vector component to be Vector Projection andVector Projection. The direction of these vector components are the standard unit vector of horizontal and vertical axes Vector Projection andVector Projection.
Vector Projection

We can find vector projection of a vector Vector Projectiononto other vector Vector Projectionbased on the inner product of the two vectors. Scalar projection of vector Vector Projectiononto vector Vector Projection is the magnitude of projection given asVector Projection. Vector projection of vector Vector Projectiononto vector Vector Projection is the magnitude of projection times the unit vector of Vector ProjectionbecomesVector Projection. Geometrically, vector projection is shown in the figure below.
Vector Projection

Example
Projection of vector Vector Projectiononto horizontal axis is equivalent to projection of vector Vector Projectiononto unit standard vectorVector Projection .  The scalar projection isVector Projection. The projection vector becomesVector Projection. Cosine angle between two vectors is Vector Projection. Thus, Vector Projection.

The interactive program below will give you the projection vectors and the scalar projection. You need to provide 2 vectors as the input. Random Example button will generate random input vectors.
