1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
The polar coordinates of a point are r=6.00 m and theta 250. What are the Cartesian coordinates?

X=????
Y=????

2. Relevant equations

sin=opp./hyp

3. The attempt at a solution

Would I just need to calculate the cos and sin? That is, I would just do sin 250=y/adj and solve for y, right?

Thank you very much

right.
x=rcos(theta)
y=rsin(theta)
