1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data What are the x and y components of a vector a in the xy plane if its direction is 230° counterclockwise from the positive direction of the x axis and its magnitude is 2 m? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution My main issue is I'm not sure where counterclockwise from the positive direction of the X axis is. I'd assume that the x and y components wouldn't form a right triangle with the 2m vector being the hypotenuse if the angle is 230°. Help, I'm lost here.
