## Main Question or Discussion Point

How would I go about the following:

A set of forces are pushing an object in a circle. These forces are recorded in the x and y direction in a 2D Cartesian coordinate system. I would like to convert the x and y force components to radial and tangential components.

Is this possible? If so, how?

All of the information I can find deals with using particle kinematics in such a conversion but I want a kinetic conversion.

Thanks!
