**How to find the angle between an XYZ vector and the y-axis? Please help!!!**

**1. Homework Statement**

A vector is given as follows:

**A**= 2

**i**- 2

**j**- 3

**k**

The angle between

**A**and the y-axis is, in degrees, closest to?:

90

119

151

61

29

**2. Homework Equations**

c = ab sin[tex]\theta[/tex] ????

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

I tried:

cos[tex]\theta[/tex] = (

**A**dot

**B**)/(A x B)

I tried to set a vector along the y-axis to use as

**B**.

Isolating [tex]\theta[/tex] yielded 56.3 degrees, which is apparently incorrect.
