Last quick question- force

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    It has been a while since I have taken pre-cal, thus I am not very good with trig. A man pushes a dolly with a force of 82 N which makes an angle of 35 degrees below the horizontal. Is the force along the x-axis F*sin(theta)? Or cos?
