## Homework Statement

what are the x and y components of a vector

**a**in the xy plane if its direction is 210(degrees) counterclockwise from the positive direction of the x axis and its magnitude is 14 m.

## Homework Equations

vector is in the third quadrant with an angle of 30(degrees)

## The Attempt at a Solution

i got the angle to be 30(degrees) so i just did

14sin30 for the x component = 7.0

14cos30 for the y component = 12.1

should they both be negative since there in the third quadrant or do the negatives cancel to get a positive.
