A point is located in a polar coordinate system by the coordinates r = 2.5 m and θ = 35°. Find the x- and y-coordinates of this point, assuming that the two coordinate systems have the same origin.

To determine
The x and y coordinated of the point which is located in polar coordinate system.

Explanation

Given Info: The polar coordinate system is given by r=2.5m and θ=35° and the polar coordinate system is given by r=2.5m and θ=35° .

Explanation:

Formula to calculate the x-coordinate is,

x=rcosθ

Here,

x is x-coordinate of the point

r is the position vector of the point

θ is the angle

Substitute 2.5m for r, 35° for θ to find x.

x=(2
