- Homework Statement
- Sin for Y axis and Cos for X axis?

- Homework Equations
- Sin = opp/hyp Cos = Adj / hyp

When calculating static equilibrium, i know that you have to split for example, F1 into F1x and F1y. when using soh/cah/toa is it always SIN for the Y axis and always Cos for the X axis? i've been following this method and getting it wrong some times it's really stressing me out, Thanks for any help in advance.
