A velocity vector 45 below the positive x-axis has a y-component of - 29 .
What is the value of its x-component?
Vx = |V|Cos(Theta)
Vy = |v|Sin(Theta)
The Attempt at a Solution
Theta = -45 degrees
y-component: -29 = xSin(-45) .... where x is the magnitude of the vector
x = Sin(-45) / - 29
...x = 0.2438
So |V| = 0.24~
Vx = (0.24)Cos(-45)
Says it's wrong, and I dont know where to go now. Am a bit embarassed asking for help with a simple problem like this :\
