# A force vector has a magnitude of 575 newtons and points at angle of 36.0 below the positive x axis. What are the x scalar component and y scalar component of the vector?

${F}_{x} = F \cos \theta = 575 \cos \left(- {36}^{\circ}\right) = 465 , 18 N$
${F}_{y} = F \sin \theta = 575 \sin \left(- {36}^{\circ}\right) = - 337 , 98 N$
${F}_{x} = F \cos \theta = 575 \cos \left(- {36}^{\circ}\right) = 465 , 18 N$
${F}_{y} = F \sin \theta = 575 \sin \left(- {36}^{\circ}\right) = - 337 , 98 N$
