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
