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

what are the x and y components of a vectorain the xy plane if its direction is 210(degrees) counterclockwise from the positive direction of the x axis and its magnitude is 14 m.

2. Relevant equations

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

3. 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.
