- Homework Statement
- I am not sure if I did this right as it wasn't as complicated as I think the solution should be and I couldn't find anything online as to how the solution is even supposed to look like. I inserted an imgur link of my answer in case the image on here isn't clear: https://imgur.com/a/tE28WWu

Calculate the components of a third quadrant vector C in the following ways:

1. use the angle between the vector and the negative x-axis (delta) and apply right-triangle trigonometry

2. use the angle between the vector and the negative y-axis (epsilon) and apply right-triangle trigonometry

3. use the standard angle for the vector (gamma) - that is, find the connection between gamma and delta in the formulas you found in part 1.

4. use the standard angle for the vector (gamma) - that is, find the connection between gamma and epsilon in the formulas you found in part 2.

- Relevant Equations
- x component = magnitude * cos(standard angle)

y component = magnitude * sin(standard angle)
