A displacement vector r in the xy plane is 6 m long and directed at angle [Theta] = 36°. Determine the x and y components of the vector.

_____ m (x component)
_____ m (y component)

I will be happy to check your answers, or critique your thinking. We don't do tests for students.

it's not a test. just a hw assignment one of a bunch of questions im stuck on.
