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.
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.
