    Let East direction be the positive x axis and North the positive y axis

    Component is the horizontal (x) direction = (Magnitude) x (Cos phi )
    Component is the vertical (y) direction = (Magnitude) x (Sin phi )

    a) HORSE A EXERTS A FORCE OF 350 N AT AN ANGLE OF 48 DEGREES N OF EAST

    Magnitude = 350 N
    phi = 48 degrees
    x ...
