Answer:

You would use the same process to resolve #hat a_x " into " hat a_x' and hat a_y'#
that you used to resolve
#hat a " into "hat a_x and hat a_y#.

Explanation:

I assume you mean to resolve #hat a_x# into a different reference system with axes x' and y'. You would need to know the angles between #hat a_x# and the axes x' and y'.

Then you would proceed with the steps that you used to break #hat a " into components "hat a_x and hat a_y#.

You would ignore what you know about #hat a#. Consider #hat a_x# as your starting point and follow the process for resolving a vector into components parallel to the axes of a reference system.

I hope this helps,
