When we get angle > 0, the x-component of force is along the direction of displacement and so their product is called Work. So the x-component of force is said to have direction of the respective displacement? We see that when angle is obtuse between force and displacement vector the force vector is not itself opposite to the displacement vector but we get negative work. Is it due to the negative direction of the x-component of force then? Are the components of force also vectors? The second diagram is from my text-book.
