Hi -(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The problem is below and picture of diagram is attached. Could you tell me what is incorrect about my train of thought? I am suppose to express x and y.

Find the components of the vector with length

C and angle phi as shown, named C vector. Express your answer in terms of C and phi . Write the components in the form (x,y) .

I expressed (x,y) as ... c*cos(phi),c*csc(phi) ... which is incorrect

Thanks for your time.
