Based on the force vector that is hown, I have to determine the x and y vector components.

|\

fy=?| \ f= 200 lb

| \

|___\

fx=?

How do I do this with only one side given and the given 90 degree angle

There is a right traingle. The hypotenuse has a value of 200 lb I have to find the two other sides of fx and fy. How do i do that with only one side given.

You also need to kmnow one of the angles besides the right angle
