Find x and y compenents

  1. Sep 25, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Let A= (3.5 m, vertically downward) and B = (4.1 m, 120° clockwise from ). Find the x and y components of and in each of the two coordinate systems shown in Figure Ex3.21. (attached)


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I already have 0 for the x component of A for system 1 and -3.5 for the y component of of A for system one...I can't figure out the B x and y for system 1 . I can't find the A x&y and B x&y for system 2 help!

    You'll need to use trigonometry (sin and cos) to find the x and y components of the vectors.
