Expert Answer:

An example of resolution of a vector is the way a person walks. When a person walks, he/she presses the ground obliquely, (i.e., at an angle to the ground) in the backward direction. The ground offers an equal and opposite reaction in the opposite direction. The vertical component of this reaction balances the weight of the person. The horizontal component helps the person to walk.
