(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The x-y coordinates are being transformed into the u-v coordinates.

Based on the diagram, u lies along x while v makes an angle α with x.

3. The attempt at a solution

The answer defined u and v weirdly..

Shouldn't

x = u

and

y = v sin α

??
