The resultant vector is the vector that adds the the x and y components separately.Since the two components of x are 0.00 m/s and 1.00 m/s, the result of the x-component will be:0.0 m/s + 1.00 m/s = 1.00 m/s in the x direction Similarly, the and components will be: -1.00 m/s + 0.00 m/s = -1.00 m/s in-and directionSo, the resulting vector will be: (1.00 m/s, -1.00 m/s)
