(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 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

Cos=adj./hyp.

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
