3. The x and the y components of a vector G a lying on the xy plane are given by cos , sin xy aa θθ == where || = G is the magnitude and θ is the angle between G a and the positive x axis. (a) The x component of G a is given by a x = 7.3 cos 250° = – 2.5 m. (b) and the y component is given by a y = 7.3 sin 250° = – 6.9 m. In considering the variety of ways to compute these, we note that the vector is 70° below
