(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The vector u of length 6 makes an angle of 40 with the z axis; it's vector projection on the xy plane makes an angle of 44 degrees with the x axis.

The vector projection of a second vector v on the z axis has a length 5. The vector projection of v on the xy plane has a length of 6 and makes an angle of 136 with the x axis.

2. Relevant equations

u = <i, j, k>

v = <i, j, k>

3. The attempt at a solution

im confused on the wording of the problem but this is how I see it...

<5cos(44),0,5sin(40)>

<5cos(136), 0, 6>
