# When the component of a vector A along the direction of vector B is zero, what can you conclude about the two vectors?

We will use the concept of the component of vectors to conclude about two vectors.

## Answer: If the component of vector A is 0 along with vector B, the angle between the two vectors will be 90 degrees.

Let us see how we will use the concept of the component of vectors to conclude about two vectors.

**Explanation:**

Let us consider two vectors as vector A and vector B.

The component of vector A along vector B will be equal to A cos θ, where θ is the angle between the two vectors.

So, the component A cos θ will be 0 if and only if cos θ = 0. For cos θ to be 0, θ = 90 degrees.

### Hence, if the component of vector A is 0 along with vector B, the angle between the two vectors will be 90 degrees.
